On the occasion of the leading international Welding & Cutting trade fair in Essen, Optrel is presenting the new Optrel Weldcap® to the world. Since the Optrel Weldcap® is neither a welding helmet nor a welding mask, Optrel had to invent beside the product, also a new name for the product category.
Hence the name says it all, because the Weldcap® stands for an auto-darkening welder’s cap that brings together the comfort of a casual cap and the advantages of a full welding helmet. The heart of this innovative product is the optical unit featuring a well-defined nose cut out. Thereby the visual unit is placed closer to the eyes compared to traditional welding helmets, which helps to increase the welder’s line of sight by 2.7 times!
Moreover, because of this, the weight shifts closer to the centre of gravity so that the Weldcap® is excellently counterbalanced and the load on the back of the welder’s neck is significantly reduced. The Optrel Weldcap® weighs only 390 grams, so it is an absolutely lightweight. It relieves the welder of about 200 kg load capacity over a year, when compared to conventional welding helmets.
Darkening levels from 9 to 12 cover the majority of welding applications and with a protection level 3 in its general mode, the welder has a bright an well-lit view of the work-place This feature predestinates the Optrel Weldcap® for grinding jobs as well. The Optrel Weldcap® is also completely hygienic. The textile part is robust and easily detachable, and is made of easily-washable, flame retarded fabric.
