QA/QC for Metal Fabrication|Metal Manufacturing

Metal fabricators and manufacturersare faced with many challenges. Supplier changes, changes in metal prices, changes in customer needs or specifications, and changes in regulations that affect how alloys must be manufactured-such as Pb-free regulations-are ever-present and require the ability to respond and adjust quickly. While some of these changes come with ample warning, others are sudden and require tools to immediately make assessments of the composition of incoming metals, in-process components, and outgoing final products. Contact us now for information on the Bruker S1 TITAN; the best tool for the job!

The ability to quickly and easily verify composition of primary metals and alloys makes the difference between an efficient, profitable business and a business on the brink of a process bottleneck or a legal disaster. Material verification tools are therefore essential for alloy quality assurance and alloy quality control in order to:

  • ensure product safety
  • meet reformulation challenges as regulations and customer specs change
  • comply with regulations restricting the use of certain toxic metals such as Pb (lead), Cd (cadmium), etc.
  • avoid materials mix-ups
  • ensure traceability

Alloy QA/QC is Essential

Alloy QA/QC is essential to any metal fabrication business, because an out-of-specification alloy-or simply the wrong alloy altogether-can result in disastrous part failures that can lead to loss or breakdown of your customers’ expensive equipment, bad press, and sometimes even loss of life. Because alloy QA/QC is essential to the health of your business, you need the best possible tools to meet these challenges, reduce your liability, and maintain a solid reputation. The Bruker S1 TITAN, the state-of-the-art in handheld metal composition analysis technology, is the premier tool.

The Bruker S1 TITAN is a handheld XRF (x-ray fluorescence) instrument that provides the user with the elemental composition of a metal or alloy in a matter of seconds. Furthermore, the S1 TITAN’s advanced alloy library capabilityverifies the grade of any alloy almost instantly, so even the novice user can immediately tell whether an alloy isin spec.

Whether you require alloy QA/QC for high-reliability alloys, aerospace alloys, Pb-free alloys, foundry applications, medical device alloy grade verification, or pharmaceutical verification and validation, the Bruker S1 TITAN is the industry tool of choice you can rely on, providing:

  • Speed - most alloy grades verified in 2-5 seconds (Light Element alloys containing Al, Si, and Mg take slightly longer)
  • Instant PMI (positive material identification)
  • Near laboratory-quality alloy chemistry, with all the compositional details
  • Nondestructive testing - even finished products can be tested with no fear of damage or alteration
  • Clear, saved records - all your analysis data is saved and available so you can easily show what was tested, when, and what the results were
  • Easy, automatic, printable reports an certificates
