The 3M Speedglas FlexView Welding Helmet allows the user to simply lift up the spring-mounted filter assembly for weld prep. The spring holds the auto-darkening filter assembly securely on top of the helmet, giving the welder a big, clear view behind the faceshield. The clear faceshield allows for precision grinding and cleaning, the careful alignment of electrodes and the inspection of newly-completed welds?all with eye and face protection.
The 3M Speedglas Welding Helmet 9000 has four aerodynamically-designed exhaust vents to help reduce "stuffiness." The auto darkening 9002X filter has user-selectable shades (9, 10, 11, 12 and 13), sensitivity and delay settings. The 9002X welding helmet handles a wide range of arc welding methods, including extremely stable arcs like those from TIG inverters at low amp settings. It has an extra large viewing area 4.09 in x 2.13 in (104 mm x 54 mm).
