Overview

Seamless quality control is essential for any metalworking, starting with tramp element analysis for scrap, inspection of in-coming materials, QA / QC 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 stationary 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 Hitachi High-Tech´s stationary OES Analysers?

Low detection limits of a wide range of elements

  • Analyse the majority of metals and their alloys, even critical trace tramp and inoculating elements
  • Widest spectral range covering nearly all interesting elements, including Nitrogen in steel
  • Integrated grade database
  • Results at your fingertips: wide range of result forms, automatic storage

High analytical performance using robust yet reliable technology

  • Very short start-up and measurement time
  • Sample stand accessible from three sides
  • High resolution detector for best spectral line separation
  • Extensive result, report and result processing options
  • Excellent long-term stability, ensured by peak position alignment (PPA)
  • Continuous use, even in rugged conditions

Stereo Measurement measures the size or depth of defects such as cracks found during inspection. The redesigned optical system and enhanced technology achieve a dramatic expansion in the inspection area. Users can now identify and measure flaws from 2X further away in an inspection area 4X larger than conventional videoscopes. Stereo Measurement supplies 3D space information for specific points in an image through precise triangulation, providing accurate length, depth, and shape measurements. The IPLEX NX is designed, manufactured, and fine-tuned to deliver superior accuracy and image quality so inspectors can detect small cracks or defects that were previously measurable only at very close range.

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).
