Literally see the difference

Imagine what more realistic-looking colours and details could do for you:

  • Provide better control of your weld puddle – with a view that appears lighter, brighter, and more realistic.
  • Help you focus on your welding set-up, welding technique and inspection of just-completed welds
  • Give you a clearer view of coloured welding machine controls – even with your helmet in the safe, down position..


Choose how you see your weld

To provide better vision and more control of your weld puddle we now introduce 3M™ Speedglas™ Variable Colour Technology: choose between natural (A), cool (B) or warm (C) tones for your dark state.
