Lincoln Electric has introduced an updated VIKING™ PAPR 3350 Welding Helmet, now with 4C ® lens technology and an optimal extended battery pack.
The PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) is a complete powered system that draws air from the environment through a HEPA filter located on the belt and delivers filtered air in the breathing zone within a premium-level VIKING auto-darkening welding helmet. A patent-pending adjustable baffling system inside the helmet directs airflow away from the eyes to avoid dryness.

The 4C lens technology upgrade improves the optics and reduces eye strain by minimising the lime-green coloring in the liquid crystal display (LCD) in both active and inactive states. This technology gives operators the ability to see a clear and undistorted view of the welding arc and puddle to maximize control and minimize defects.
The company says 4C technology is ideal for a range of industries that use multiple welding processes, such as stick, MIG and TIG, including general fabrication, power generation, shipbuilding, structural, offshore and pipeline.
In addition to the updated lens technology, Lincoln Electric will now offer an extended battery pack for the system. The rechargeable lithium ion battery provides up to 16 hours of battery life at the low air flow setting and is rated for 500+ charges.
Lincoln Electric’s new $30m Welding Technology Centre project is on schedule for a 2017 opening.
Lincoln Electric Holdings, Inc. has promoted Steven B. Hedlund to Executive Vice-President and President of the International Welding segment.
