Of the roughly 50,000 foundries around the world, approximately 12,000 produce non-ferrous metal. The exact chemical composition of a non-ferrous alloy being manufactured needs to be checked throughout the melt process to ensure the quality of the finished product meets specification. OES technology is primed to deliver accurate and reliable one-step quality control throughout the process. Our OES expert Wilhelm Sanders explains how this can be achieved.
This guide about how to achieve optimal melt control for non-ferrous casting with spark spectrometers covers:
