The Lincoln Electric K3064-1 auto-darkening welding helmet has an auto-darkening lens filter (ADF), a high-density plastic shell, and adjustable headgear, and it meets American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z87.1-203 specifications. The ADF has a variable shade range from 9 to 13 to protect the wearer’s eyes from radiant energy. The welding helmet’s high-density plastic shell protects the wearer’s face, forehead, neck, and ears from weld sparks and spatters. The helmet comes with an adjustable ratchet suspension to fit various head sizes, and it is compatible with a magnifying lens, also called a “cheater lens” (sold separately).

Welding helmets (also called welding masks) are protective headgear worn to protect the wearer’s face, forehead, neck, and ears from weld sparks and spatters and to protect the wearer’s eyes from radiant energy and highly-concentrated ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) rays emitted during welding tasks. These helmets consist of an outer shell and a pivoting suspension system so the helmet can be lifted up and out of the wearer’s line of sight when not needed. A window with a shaded filter lens in the helmet allows the wearer to see while working and provides various levels of protection. Different types of welding tasks require different shade levels. Lenses may be fixed shade, or variable shade for use with a range of welding tasks. Lenses may be passive, requiring the wearer to lift the helmet up to see between welding tasks, or auto-darkening, requiring a power source and sensors to quickly switch the lens from a lower shade level to a higher shade level during arc flashes. Auto-darkening filters (ADF) that meet the ANSI Z87.1-2010 standard provide protection from UV and IR rays even in the lightened state.
Lincoln Electric manufactures welders and welding supplies, including the Century brand. The company, founded in 1895, is headquartered in Cleveland, OH.
