Hitachi High-Tech has developed a range of metal analysers essential for positive material identification (PMI) for the QA/QC processes.
From handheld through mobile to stationary formats, our analysers are as simple and intuitive to use with minimal training required.
Our analysers are fast, saving you time and money. And with long battery life, you’re not wasting time constantly recharging either.
We understand our analysers need to work where the metal is – so we’ve designed our analysers to be tough, durable and built to last.
Our analysers feature reliable, rigorously-tested and efficient technology – to ensure that over time, your overall costs are lower.
XRF, available in both benchtop and handheld formats, is ideal for measuring a wide range of elements and concentrations in many different materials, including metal alloys. XRF technology utilises an X-ray tube to induce a response from the atoms in the tested sample. This technique is ideal when you need low limits of detection for accurate grade separation.Arrange a demo
OES is available in mobile and stationary formats. OES can analyse all the key elements at low limits of detection, like phosphorous, sulphur, boron – and carbon, starting with a detection limit of 30ppm. Compared to handheld XRF, OES technique requires more sample preparation and a small but visible burn spot is left on the surface.Arrange a demo
LIBS is a fast, handheld format, ideal for the identification of different types of alloys. With a LIBS analyser, there are no X-rays as it uses a focused laser pulse to hit the sample surface, removing a very small amount of material for analysis. This means the LIBS burn mark is so small that it can often be used even for finished goods.Arrange a demo
That’s why, with Hitachi High-Tech, you can simply and accurately test the elemental composition of any metal at any stage of the production process – whether raw materials or finished products – and ensure 100% quality.
With compliance and cost pressures throughout the production and manufacturing process, the need for 100% positive material identification is here to stay. This puts more and more demands on your instrumentation. That’s why you need a trusted partner – one that can deliver accurate results fast.
Our range of metals analysers and technologies ensures:
So whatever the metal, at whatever the stage of the process, Hitachi High-Tech analysers could prove to be your most valuable tools.
