Closer. Further ahead.
A nose cutout changes everything.
Without a doubt, the nose is one of our most important organs and takes our senses into the fifth dimension. But when it comes to enlarging the welder's field of vision by positioning the anti-glare display, ergonomically optimal, closer to the eye, the nose gets in our way.
So we threw all conventions overboard and dared the technological chin-up to give the display a nose cutout. The result is impressive. More than 600% enlargement of the field of view without increasing the weight and shape of the welding helmet. The practical additional benefit is, due to the clear separation from the mouth area, you no longer breathe on the display and thus prevent the anti-glare window from tarnishing.
Our pragmatic approach is so new and innovative that several patents have been granted for it - and guarantees its uniqueness.
In addition to the large field of vision and crystal-clear optics, which form an actual assistance system, all members of the panoramaxx series are equipped with the latest digital electronics. The patented Shadetronic and Fadetronic technologies in combination with the 5-point sensor system and the re-charge energy concept are the core elements.
They enable welders to focus on their work and allow them to work without interruption. This results in quality and efficiency. Thanks to the ergonomic design of the perfectly fitting optrel lsoFit® headband, the panoramaxx is light as a feather and fatigue-free. All panoramaxx welding helmets are highly robust at the lowest weight and protect users against external mechanical impacts such as high speed particles which hit the helmet at up to 120 m/s. And thanks to grinding mode, which can be easily operated externally, and the incomparable appearance, even grinding work is more fun.
The patented optrel ShadeTronic® technology automatically adjusts the protection level to the changing light conditions of the welding arc. This allows welders to work without interruption.
A sophisticated Shadetronic sensor continuously measures the light intensity of the welding arc and regulates the glare protection progressively from SN 4 to a maximum of SN 13 fully automatically.
With the patented optrel Fadetronic technology, the opening of the anti-glare display can be continuously adjusted after welding. The unpleasant afterglow is faded out – especially for high ampere applications. Eye fatigue is significantly reduced thanks to the display opening smoothly and being adapted to the eye.
The unique and environmentally-friendly optrel re-charge energy concept ensures that welding helmets always have enough energy. Thanks to the latest solar technology, a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery is recharged either by the welding light or by the ambient light. In addition, the battery can also be charged directly with any USB charger via a micro-USB interface. The tiresome changing of batteries is no longer necessary and the environment is protected.
The optrel 5-point detection integrated in the panoramaxx series is an intelligent sensor control with five sensors. Sophisticated software and clever positioning of four sensors at the corners and one sensor in the upper centre ensures the glare shield is switched on and off perfectly, even in the most difficult lighting conditions and in constrained positions, as well as permanent dark level adjustment (Shadetronic®, patented) during welding.
Like most optrel welding helmets, the products in the panoramaxx series have a grinding mode. It can be conveniently operated externally by means of a robust and well-protected pressure switch. Once activated, the anti-glare display remains deactivated, which guarantees trouble-free grinding work. At the touch of another button, the glare shield is then immediately ready for welding work. Your optrel welding helmet becomes a true multifunctional work safety device.

„After completing my apprenticeship as a metalworker, I have decided I want to work with professional equipment. I simply love the versatility of my job. Welding, grinding, straightening. The panoramaxx2.5 is as versatile as my field of activity. The sublime field of vision helps me to master the various tasks easily and safely.“
Welcome to the top league. The panoramaxx2.5 combines the enormous field of vision with optrel's well-known 2.5 technology and offers excellent visibility in every working situation – whether for welding, cutting, grinding or straightening work. Whatever you want, the optrel panoramaxx2.5 automatically follows your versatile field of activity.

„I weld complex structures in steel construction. Given that the heavy components cannot be moved, I have to weld a lot in constrained positions. Then in these positions, I always had uneven brightness levels in the corners of the ADF. These differences are completely gone in the new quattro. And thanks to the large field of vision, I can move safely through the structures and work without interruption. The panoramaxx quattro gets right to the point.“
The panoramaxx quattro was developed for use in heavy metal construction, where work is often carried out with a lot of energy and in a wide variety of welding positions. Especially in constrained positions, there is no straight view of the welding point. Perfect viewing angle dependence, confirmed by the best test mark of 1 according to the EN 379 standard, guarantees that panoramaxx quattro welders always have the best view of the welding process without manual adjustment of the protection level. This results in uninterrupted and fatigue-free working and improved performance.

„I weld safety-related components made of stainless steel using the TIG process. Every weld needs to fit right away, otherwise it will be very expensive. Control over the weld pool and the uncompromising clear view of the colour gradient is absolutely crucial for me. That's why I decided on the panoramaxx clt.“
The world famous Crystal Lens Technology 2.0 is now also available in the panoramaxx clt version. optrel engineers have thus once again pushed the limits of what is possible to a new level.
Anyone who has ever welded with CLT technology will barely be able to believe their eyes.
The colour perception in the light state comes very close to the view through the clear window glass and in the dark state you get a detailed and high-contract view of the welding pool in a clarity never seen before. Unlock your true potential – with the panoramaxx clt.

True colour vision –
directly when welding.
For the first time in the history of welding you as a welder see the joining process as it actually takes place. How the weld pool melts, how the weld seam is created. You can see how the filler material is immersed in the welding pool and gain complete control over your work.
CLT offers you brilliant vision, like through a window pane. Crystal clear. And thanks to optrel Autopilot always with the right protection level.
As far as always the distinction can be seen upon taking a closer look. With the crystal lens technology you will recognize the difference immediately when putting it on.
The color perception in light state is almost like looking through clear window glass and in dark mode you enjoy a detailled and high-contrast view of the welding pool with a never-seen-before clearness.

The weldcap bump RCB 3/9-12
On demand of variuous professional welders: the weldcap® new with integriated bump cap according to EN812/A1.
The revolutionary optrel weldcap® RC 3/9-12, that combines the comfort of a baseball cap with the advantages of an automated welding helmet (ADF), is now available in a new extended version: the optrel weldcap® bump RCB 3/9-12.
Where at normal ADFs the head is only protected in parts, the weldcap® bump now offers a complete protection of the upper head part against painful strikes. Even more, the bump cap gives the weldcap an additional stability and a safety feeling like a full face helmet to the welder, without getting noticeably heavier.
The easy to remove textile part is made from washable and non-flammable material. You can buy it separately, which means you can turn any existing weldcap® into a weldcap® bump and vice-versa.
Dr. Ramon Hofer Kraner – Head of R&D: „With the weldcap® bump we extended the scope of application of the weldcap® measurably. With the bump cap it's also fitting welders’ needs about higher safety standards“.
