Coating Thickness Measurements with Hitachi XRF Analyzers

Coating Thickness XRF SalesEastern Applied Research offers the Hitachi High-Technologies line of x-ray fluorescence analyzers, which includes the popular FT-110A for coating thickness quality control.  The Hitachi FT-110A is a versatile system that can provide high precision for basic single layer coatings to more complex applications (multi-layer, alloy thickness, and composition, etc).  In addition to the latest developments in XRF for coating thickness, we also have a rotating inventory of Used XRF analyzers along with Eddy-Current/Magnetic contact gauges.

Hitachi High-Technologies FT110A
- four chamber configurations to meet various sample interests
- highly efficient: auto-focus function for improved through-put
- reliable precision: distance correction through auto-focus
- innovative: wide view observation to narrow field image
