optrel Invites Welders and Metal Fabricators to Experience a World Record with vegaview2.5 at FABTECH

optrel’s latest optical innovation has the lowest shade level at light state in an autodarkening welding helmet

EAST GREENWICH, RHODE ISLAND – optrel inc., the global innovator of autodarkening lens technology for welding helmets, will features its new vegaview2.5 autodarkening welding helmet at FABTECH at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL, from November 9 – 12, 2015.

The optrel vegaview2.5 sets the world record with the brightest view at light state, with a shade level of 2.5. This bright view offers welders and metal fabricators a 400% brighter view than other autodarkening welding helmets with a light state of shade level 4. This not only improves the welders’ overall safety, it improves their productivity by eliminating the need to interrupt their work to don safety goggles or face shields when they grind.

vegaview2.5 also incorporates optrel’s True Color Filter optical technology which optimizes a welder’s view with an unprecedented view of realistic color, enabling welders to view their workspace more clearly and see red LEDs on welding devices without raising their helmets. This enhances welders’ ability to tack weld as it allows welders to make more accurate electrode placements. This technology also reduces eye strain often experienced when welding with other autodarkening helmets.

FABTECH attendees are encouraged to visit optrel inc.’s booth (#N26059) and try on the new vegaview2.5 helmet an experience the world record for themselves.

In addition to vegaview2.5, optrel will also present:

  • e684 Helmet – The e684 helmet features the only autodarkening lens that fully automates protection through its Adaptive Shade Autopilot technology, automatically adjusting its shade level as the welder works – and in full high definition viewing. The e684 was recently named to the 2015 Contractors’ Top 50 New Products by Equipment Today.
  • e3000 PAPR System – The e3000 PAPR offers two-channel air distribution inside the helmet for a high level of comfort and an innovative HEPA filter design that protects against exposures to smoke, dust, and other particulates. It is the only NIOSH-approved PAPR / helmet system with an automatic air flow check at start up, which ensures that welders receive the correct flow of air, eliminating manual inspections and mitigating additional risks.
  • weldcap Bump Cap – weldcap combines the lightweight wear comfort and fit of a baseball cap with the full protection of an autodarkening welding helmet. Its sleek profile is ideal for welders working in confined spaces or need to use half-mask respirators as they work. optrel will feature weldcap and its new weldcap Bump Cap model at FABTECH.

optrel’s management team, including Marco Koch (President) and Roger Affeltranger (CEO), will be in attendance at FABTECH and available for interviews.

WHEN: Monday 9 – Thursday 12 November 2015
WHERE: McCormick Place, Chicago, IL
BOOTH: #N26059
