Are you in a long-term relationship with your XRF supplier but looking for something new? Maybe you’ve never owned a Hitachi XRF coatings analyzer, maybe it’s been a while since you’ve seen what our analyzers are capable of.
The FT230 coatings analyzer is the perfect reason to peak over the fence and see what you’re missing out on.
The time it takes to grab a part, set it up in the XRF and act on the results has a major impact on your production efficiency and material costs. The longer it takes, the more material is being plated – if that material is out of spec, it needs to be scrapped for a total loss. If the material is in spec, maybe you’re laying down more coating and using more chemicals than necessary.
The FT230 is designed to shorten that time so you can make quicker decisions. Here’s how and the results you can expect:
Find My PartTM can be 72% faster – or quicker – than a traditional setup.
Measurement routines can also be loaded by using name lookup and scanning a QR or barcode.
When using their XRF coatings instrument, operators spend nearly all their time in the measurement screen. With the all-new FT Connect software on the FT230, we’ve put the operator first to make analysis easier.
The software on your phone, tablet, computer, TV, car and even your toaster oven have adapted in the last twenty years. With FT Connect on the FT230, the software for your XRF coatings analyzer can once again hold its head up high.
FT Connect features the largest sample view display on the market, occupying 60% of the screen, and has incredibly flexible lighting controls. The user can adjust dozens of LEDs either as rings, wedge segments or individually to ensure the best view possible. You can use the factory pre-set suggestions or create new customized lighting setups to simplify future measurements.
Results are displayed clearly next to the camera view with tools for evaluating trends and statistics, creating reports or exporting results and looking at historical results. Each result card can be expanded to view additional details about previous measurements for quick interpretation.
The data handling capabilities are ready for Industry 4.0. Results can be exported in spreadsheet or comprehensive JSON format for integration with SCADA, QMS, MES or ERP systems.
At Hitachi, we know our job doesn’t end once the FT230 has been installed. We will work with you throughout the lifetime of the instrument to make sure you’ve fully supported – whether you need additional training, technical support, routine maintenance including preventive maintenance and certification or repairs.
Selected diagnostics data can be shared directly and automatically with our expert support team using ExTOPE Connect, cloud-based data management and storage solution. This is the fastest way to get the data to our engineers so they can review your instrument and work to pinpoint the exact problem area before going on-site. This helps to ensure that the right parts are available to the engineer and getting you running as quickly as possible.
The FT230 is just one of our solutions for the coatings industry. We offer a range of dedicated instruments: XRF coatings analyzers, handheld XRF for coatings and materials analysis, electromagnetic gauges for paint, anodizing and PCB copper thickness, instruments with expanded capabilities for solutions analysis and thermal analysis instruments for materials properties testing.
