Elemental, phase and residual stress analysis
Quality production demands control of material properties throughout the entire process from raw material to finished product. The speed and precision of X-ray fluorescence (XRF) elemental analysis make it a preferred testing method in high sample throughput chemical analysis. In addition to alloy stoichiometry, X-ray diffraction (XRD) examines phase composition, retained austenite concentration or residual stress, which correlate with structural quality of your products. Within a very few seconds, the Rigaku KT-100S handheld metal analyzer easily performs identification of the most difficult alloy grades. The device utilizes laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), enabling durable and accurate alloy identification for metal sorting, quality assurance and positive material identification (PMI) in mission-critical operations.
