The company’s Niton XL3t series material analyzers with geometrically optimized large area drift detector (GOLDD) technology are said to deliver improvements in light element detection, overall sensitivity and measurement times. This instrument offers light element detection of magnesium, aluminum, silicon, phosphorus and sulfur without helium or vacuum purging. For the machining industry, the capability to verify sulfur content in free machining steels, such as SS 303, can help eliminate damage to tooling caused by incorrect materials, the company says.

According to the company, the technology brings true lab-quality performance to a hand-held XRF analyzer. It’s easy to use, delivers fast analysis and is accurate and precise, the company says. It is suited for fast alloy grade identification and laboratory-quality composition analysis of aluminum, titanium, and nickel alloys, as well as superalloys, stainless steel and other metals.

  • Measuring Part Geometry On The Shop Floor

    Measuring workpiece dimensions is relatively simple for machine operators but measuring workpiece geometry which involves more complex comparisons of part shape to an ideal shape--is now also practical on the shop floor. The gaging equipment for doing this is coming down in price while becoming easier to use.

  • How Accurate Is Your Machining Center?

    Virtually every machine tool builder lists, as part of a machine's specification, accuracy and repeatability figures. What's generally not given is the method used to arrive at the figures. Though these methods are defined in linear positioning standards, not all builders use the same standards.
