X-MET8000 helps the Ningbo Museum restore and verify artifacts

”As XRF technology is non-destructive, it can identify inks, pigments, ceramics, bronze and other alloys in seconds without sampling or preparing test products. ”

The national Ningbo Museum in China exhibits the works of “Neo-Ruralism” by Wang Shu. The collection includes more than 70,000 cultural artefacts from the prehistoric Hemudu Culture to modern precious bronze, jade, gold and silver wares, porcelains, bamboo carvings, calligraphy, paintings and folk art. The museum recently purchased Hitachi High-Tech’s handheld X-MET8000 Expert Geo X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) analyser to help with the restoration of these valuable cultural artefacts and anti-counterfeit protection.

 

Hitachi High-Tech’s X-MET8000 analyser range is often used in the identification, protection and restoration of art and historical artefacts. As XRF technology is non-destructive, it can identify inks, pigments, ceramics, bronze and other alloys in seconds without sampling or preparing test products.
