Rigaku Analytical Devices Presents Latest Metal Alloy Analysis Solutions at IMTS Spark

Rigaku Analytical Devices is showcasing its handheld KT-100S LIBS analyzer for metal alloy analysis in the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) Spark Showroom


Wilmington, MA – September 21, 2020 Rigaku Analytical Devices, the market leader in handheld laser-based technology will showcase its Rigaku KT-100S  handheld laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) analyzer for metal alloy analysis, in the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) Spark Showroom, available September 21, 2020 – March 15, 2021.

IMTS Spark is a comprehensive digital platform for manufacturing professionals to access relevant technology, topics, and people.  The online experience will host product videos, exhibitor showrooms, knowledge centers, conference sessions, podcasts, student experiences, and much more – connecting visitors within the largest online manufacturing technology community.


The Rigaku KT-100S LIBS metal analyzer provides on-the-spot identification of the most difficult alloys, including aluminum grades, with lower detection limits and the ability to analyze more alloys than traditional handheld identification methods. This includes upgraded precision for low alloy steels, stainless steels, as well as high temperature alloys and the added detection of lithium (Li). In addition, the KT-100S analyzer offers unique auto surface preparation with its Drill-Down™ feature and is considerably smaller and lighter than other handheld LIBS analyzers currently available.

Another major benefit to the user is that, because the KT Series of handheld LIBS analyzers utilizes a laser excitation source, there are minimal to no regulatory licensing requirements.

The KT-100S handheld LIBS analyzer is designed to be the ideal analytical tool for use in fabrication shops, plant environments and scrap metal yards, as evident by its MIL-STD 810G drop-test certification and IP-54 dust protection rating.  Manufacturers now have the ability to provide on-site certification of verification of outgoing material, as well as confirm or reestablish chain of custody of mislabeled components.

In addition, Rigaku’s U.S. distribution partner – Metals Analysis Group (MAG) - will include a special offer for IMTS Spark visitors on orders placed within the U.S. before December 31, 2020.  Terms and Conditions apply.  For more information, visit the Rigaku Showroom on IMTS Spark.
