No compromises in Quality Assurance: When to select XRF, LIBS or Spark technology (OES)
Abstract »Alloy grade identification and composition analysis are critical to ensure quality control today more than ever. With materials coming from a global supply chain, in every corner of the world, material verification is a must in order to perform the necessary due diligence needed to minimize manufacturing risks. Quality recalls are costly and companies cannot jeopardize batch contamination and other risks involved in incorporating non-compliant raw materials into their manufacturing process. Moreover, the introduction of unsafe products into the market place can cause a company irreparable and economic harm.
Today’s quality assurance and engineering professionals have a choice of techniques when it comes to alloy analysis and understanding which technology is most appropriate for their application can often be confusing. Oxford Instruments will present an overview of X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF), Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS), and Optical Emissions Spectroscopy (OES) to assist you to identify which technique is the most appropriate for your application needs.
