Stress Analyzers

Residual stress may be created during the manufacturing process of a material, or it may accumulate in a structure over many years in operation. In either case, this stress can have a serious negative effect on a product's quality, durability and lifetime. Accurate detection of residual stress is an important element of the quality control process and helps predict the service lifetime of products. Rigaku has developed a range of stress analyzer diffractometers, in co-operation with academic and industrial users, which provide the most technically advanced, versatile and cost-effective solutions available today.
