Matrix Metrologies, Inc. will introduce a new portable X-ray analysis tool designed for coating thickness and material analysis measurement of plated parts. The systemoffers full bench-top XRF capability in a battery powered handheld package.
The handheld XRF tool is very well suited for the analysis of large bulk samples where placement in a bench-top chamber is difficult or impractical. In addition, the tool offers point-of process measurement capability for incoming analysis of purchased inventory, pre-process verification of material type prior to plating and at- process analysis of plated parts without the need to bring samples into a lab for plating verification.
