New members of the company’s Niton handheld XRF analyzers are available, including the Niton XL2 GOLDD series and the Niton XL3t GOLDD+ series. Using handheld x-ray fluorescence technology, these analyzers provide accurate grade identification and alloy chemistry in seconds. The company’s geometrically optimized large area drift detector (GOLDD) technology is said to deliver faster measurement times and lower detection limits (as much as 10-times faster than conventional Si-PIN detectors and up to three-times more precise than conventional smaller silicon drift detectors).
 
The Niton XL2 GOLDD XRF analyzer has a 45 kV/100 μA x-ray tube and are lightweight yet ruggedly built to withstand severe environments. Customizable menus offer multi-language options and a standard analytical range of more than 30 elements from magnesium to uranium. The Niton XL3t GOLDD+ XRF analyzer has a 50 kV/200 μA x-ray tube and a color, touch-screen display. It is said to deliver lab-quality analysis on almost any alloy. For ultra-low Mg analysis, there is a helium purge option. Plus, this analyzer enables users to identify free-machining stainless steels based on sulfur content. Its integrated CamShot CCD camera comes standard for accurate sample positioning and image capture.

  • DFGT - Double Flank Gear Testing

    Functional gear testing, also known as total radial composite deviation, is a method of looking at the total effect of gear errors. This test method simulates the conditions under which a set of gears is likely to operate as a result of the gears meshing together.

  • Surface Texture From Ra to Rz

    The irregularity of a machined surface is the result of the machining process, including the choice of tool; feed and speed of the tool; machine geometry; and environmental conditions. This irregularity consists of high and low spots machined into a surface by the tool bit or a grinding wheel.

  • Raising the Bar with Ballbar Testing

    Few manufacturing companies rely on ballbar testing to maintain machine tool accuracy as thoroughly as Silfex. Now, advanced training and a move to a Renishaw QC20-W wireless system have enabled the company to take the benefits of ballbar testing to a higher level.
