What It’s Like to Weld Behind a Crystal Lens?


Experience the difference: Crystal Lens Technology.

What do the optrel Crystal 2.0 and the Panoramaxx CLT have in common? It’s all about that Crystal Lens Technology.

If you’ve never welded in an Optrel Crystal 2.0 or a Panoramaxx CLT this video is for you. Check out this side-by-side comparison of what it’s like to weld with Crystal Lens Technology and without it. The industry-standard welding helmet has a light transmission of 5%. This dramatically impairs visibility during the welding process and makes setup and prep work difficult. Optrel’s Crystal Lens Technology allows a light transmission of 31% in light state (shade level 2) and provides welders with an unclouded, almost clear view of the work environment.

Crystal Lens Technology offers…

  • Unsurpassed optical clarity. Enjoy a light transmission of 31% in light state (shade level 2) compared to the industry standard of 5%.
  • Real-time accuracy. Being able to see the joining process as it takes place allows you to course-correct in real-time and avoid costly mistakes.
  • Increased productivity. Now you can see clearly throughout all phases of the welding process including setup and prep work, without having to remove your hood.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Nick, Rapid Welding

Visibility prior to and during welding is insane. I could see the grain cut on the material and any contaminants moving towards the outside of the molten weld pool as I was welding.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Aaron D.

Super awesome helmet. Never have I had a helmet on this level. So clear.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Adam F.

I’m a union welder. I’ve owned Millers and Lincolns but this is my go-to hood now. Lightweight and the clarity is unrivaled.

Buy with confidence! The Panoramaxx CLT and the Crystal 2.0 both offer a 2-year warranty with an additional 1-year warranty extension if you register within the first 6-months.
