Miller Electric Mfg. LLC expands its innovative Weld-Mask series with the introduction of Weld-Mask 2 — a first-of-its-kind alternative to traditional welding helmets for the industrial welding market. Weld-Mask 2 is engineered specifically for the unique hazards prevalent for construction and ship welders and other operators who weld in tight, non-traditional spaces.

Eye injuries continue to be the most common injury for welders — accounting for more than 25 percent of all welding injuries, according to Occupational Safety & Health magazine. Many factors lead to operators removing their helmets, specifically when working in tight spaces, including: overall discomfort and neck pain, the frustration of bumping their helmet on close surroundings, reduced lens reaction when welding out of position, and low-light conditions.

Weld-Mask 2 addresses many of the obstacles of welding in tight spaces:
• Low-profile design is approximately 40 percent lighter than a traditional auto-darkening welding helmet
• Large singular lens improves range of visibility
• Close-fitting, soft eye covering provides total darkness for precision welding
• Users can adapt to their environment with shades 5-13
• X-Mode technology continuously detects the arc even when sensors are blocked, making it ideal for out-of-position, outdoor and low-amp TIG welding
• Easily fits under a hard hat without adapters, eliminating helmet with hard hat weight and balance issues
• Flashlight accessory frees both hands for welding

Weld-Mask 2 is also designed to address compliance issues within industrial environments. The Miller LPR-100 reusable respirator and classic safety glasses seamlessly fit under Weld-Mask 2 — ensuring the operator is fully protected without sacrificing comfort.
