New Miller T94 weld­ing hel­mets aim to min­imise fa­tigue

The new T94 Se­ries weld­ing hel­mets from Miller are de­signed to re­duce neck strain and fa­tigue through bet­ter bal­ance, while also im­prov­ing com­fort and vis­i­bil­ity.

The auto-dark­en­ing hel­mets have a chis­elled shell de­sign that pro­vides op­ti­mal skin cov­er­age and ac­com­mo­dates half-mask res­pi­ra­tors, Miller says, adding that an alu­minium heat shield and sil­ver shell re­flect heat to keep both lens and op­er­a­tor cooler.

The com­pany says it has de­signed the shell and head­gear in a way that pro­vides 14 per­cent bet­ter bal­ance than be­fore, re­duc­ing torque on the op­er­a­tor’s neck by 17 per­cent and al­le­vi­at­ing op­er­a­tor fa­tigue and ex­ces­sive neck strain. They are also 6 per cent lighter than be­fore.

The T94 hel­mets use ClearLight Lens Tech­nol­ogy for bet­ter colour and clar­ity in both weld­ing and light states, which should re­duce eye strain and im­prove weld qual­ity.

Other fea­tures in­clude mul­ti­ple op­er­at­ing modes, half-shade lens set­tings and shade 5.0 side win­dows.

These mod­els have four op­er­at­ing modes — weld, cut, grind and X-Mode (which elec­tro­mag­net­i­cally senses the weld to elim­i­nate sun­light in­ter­fer­ence and con­tin­u­ously de­tects the arc even if sen­sors are blocked) — plus In­foTrack 2.0 data mon­i­tor­ing tech­nol­ogy which mon­i­tors arc time and arc count for quot­ing and met­rics.

There are two mod­els in the Miller T94 Se­ries: the T94, which has ex­ter­nal grind­ing con­trol; and the T94i, which has what Miller de­scribes as the in­dus­try’s largest in­te­grated grind shield.

“It pro­vides 284 square cen­time­tres of clear view­ing area for grind­ing and other tasks, in­creas­ing hel­met-on time and de­creas­ing the po­ten­tial for eye in­juries,” the com­pany says.

The weld­ing hel­mets come with five out­side cover lenses, two in­side cover lenses and a hel­met bag.
