Seamless quality control is essential for any metalworking, starting with tramp element analysis for scrap, inspection of in-coming materials, QS / QA in the foundry process and goods issue.

Optical Emission Spectroscopy, or OES, is a well trusted and widely used analytical technique used to determine the elemental composition of a broad range of metals.

Our portable optical emission spectrometers offer the highest levels of accuracy and precision of the analytical results. A powerful yet easy-to-use software package covers almost every application.

Why choose Hitachi OES portable analysers

  • Analyse even critical trace tramp and inoculating elements
  • Widest spectral range covering nearly all interesting elements
  • Integrated grade database

Perfect mobility

  • Fast and reliable analysis on the go –get your results immediately on site
  • Extraordinary long battery life for full work day of cordless operation
  • High resolution Multi-CCD optics for best spectral line separation
  • Lightweight probes
  • Continuous use, even in rugged conditions

GRADE Database included

The largest metals database for fast and easy grade identification is already installed on all our optical emission spectrometers:

More than 10 million records for over 320,000 materials from 69 countries and standards.
Update your instrument’s grade database with a few clicks.
No time consuming research in norms and grade catalogues.

With few easy and comprehensive steps you can:

Find equivalents to foreign metals and comparing alternatives side by side (cross referencing).
Search for metals worldwide by specific chemical composition or mechanical properties.
Decipher metal specifications and finding the correct grade for a specific application.
Find precise traceable and reliable mechanical, physical and other property data for various conditions and temperatures.
Follow the ever increasing pace of changes to national and international standards (such as AISI/ASDM, DIN,EN, BS, JIS, GOST and many more).
