3M Speedglas 9100FX
The 9100 FX
combines legendary Speedglas quality and auto darkening with an innovative wide-view grinding visor to give welders
an all-in-one solution for more flexibility, precision, and efficiency. The exceptionally clear, wide grinding
visor offers a greater field of view in all directions, while a smooth flip-up pivot mechanism assures effortless
transition from welding to grinding modes.
Professional welders marvel at the stability and balance of the helmet in all positions - up, down or anywhere in
between, the new pivot location keeps leveraged forces to a minimum. With our new-patented head suspension we avoid
pressure on vulnerable nerves, arteries and acupressure points; areas that might cause pain or discomfort if they
are set under pressure for a period of time.
Welders are delighted to see all the filter options: A grinding shade 3; Gas welding shade 5; Micro-plasma welding
shade 8; Arc welding shades 9 through 13. Sensitivity settings for normal welding to low-amp inverter TIG welding,
and even low sensitivity setting for when other welders are working nearby. More versatility, greater optimisation
and more user satisfaction.

medical experts, we mapped out the vulnerable areas
of the head and avoided them with our new head suspension design. Then, we created a design
that better cradles the head. As a result, you do not need to tighten the headband as much
as you do on conventional headbands to firmly hold the helmet on your head.
Feedback from professional welders lead us to research ways to
further reduce the possibility of neck strain. Our answer was: reduce strain on the
neck by reducing the static and dynamic loads. From a helmet design standpoint, that
means keeping the helmet as close as possible to the head. By lowering the pivot point
to just above your ears, the helmet stays as close as possible to the top of your head
when in the up position. In essence, we’ve shortened the length of the ¹lever to help
reduce forces on your neck muscles.

There are seven dark shade settings
to choose from: shade 5
for gas welding/cutting and shade 8 for micro-plasma and low amp TIG welding as well as
variable dark shades of 9 to 13. If needed, you also have the option to lock-in your shade,
including the light state (shade 3) for grinding. A patented comfort mode for tack welding
helps to reduce eye fatigue resulting from the eye constantly adjusting to differing light
Protection UV/IR protection shade 13 permanent.
The tack welding comfort mode
uses an intermediate
light state (shade). If a follow-up arc is not struck within two seconds, the welding
filter switches to the normal light state (shade). The comfort mode may help reduce eye
fatigue resulting from the eye constantly needing to adjust to differing light levels
during tack welding.
Magnification made easy.
magnifying lens holder, on the inside face of the welding helmet, makes lens
installation easier and more adjustable.
Conforms to ANSI Z8 .1- 00 and CSA Z9. - 00 for
