XRF Analyzer: 3D’s Traceability Guarantee

The 3-D Precision Machine team adds another valuable piece of technology to their extensive list with the inclusion of a portable XRF Analyzer.

Verification is key in the manufacturing setting especially for the aerospace and medical industries. The majority of our customers’ mission-critical components require extremely specific material alloy grade and chemistry to ensure optimal performance. The portable Vanta C X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzer has given our team the opportunity to ensure material composition from the moment material hits our dock regardless of the material source.

How it works:

XRF is an acronym for X-ray fluorescence; a process where electrons are displaced from their atomic orbital position. This displacement releases a measurable burst of energy that is registered by the XRF analyzer in a non-destructive way. The analyzer is able to categorize the energy by element. The entire process occurs within seconds with immediate results.

Verifiable Metal Alloys Examples:

  • Aluminum
  • Carbon Steel
  • Nickel
  • Cobalt
  • Super Alloys
  • Stainless
  • Titanium

XRF Analyzer Benefits:

  • Positive Material Identification (PMI) in seconds
  • Non-Destructive Verification
  • Material Heat Traceability
  • Reverse Engineering
  • Proper Scrap/ Recycling Identification/ Sorting

The 3-D Precision Team holds its material suppliers to a rigid quality standards that ensures tight control on all raw materials. We understand the importance of traceability and peace of mind of getting exactly what you have specified for your project. “Trust but verify” is a motto that we believe every manufacturer should live by to protect their operations and guarantee material conformity ensuring customer success!
