Tough Handheld Alloy Analyzer Endures Rough Environments
The KT-100 Katana from Rigaku Analytical Devices is said to be the only handheld alloy analyzer certified to strict MIL-STD-810G standards.
The KT-100 Katana from Rigaku Analytical Devices is said to be the only handheld alloy analyzer certified to strict MIL-STD-810G standards: the industry’s first drop-tested analyzer for metal and alloy identification in industrial environments.
The handheld, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) analyzer is applicable for metal fabrication, positive material identification in petrochemical plants and scrap metal sorting requiring fast, accurate and robust methods for alloy identification to promote profitability and product quality. The analyzer is designed for use in scrap yards, plant environments and fabrication shops, and features an IP54 rating for use in wet environments.
The KT-100 Katana is designed for on-the-spot metals classification, including aluminum grades, and features QuickID software. The analyzer offers auto surface preparation with its DrillDown feature and features an extended battery life. GPS enables instrument tracking.
Different instruments (and different operators) are prone to different errors.
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.
This shop has a plan for dramatically expanding its contract machining business in high-value markets.
