VERIFY YOUR ALUMINUMS

In recent years there has more of a drive to verify the metal alloy grades used in the automotive industry. Previously it was really the high-end manufacturers looking at specialty alloys used in engines. However, due to a greater push to remove costs and extend a vehicle's lifespan, metal alloy verification is quickly becoming more mainstream. As more and more automobile manufacturers have switched to aluminum alloys, the drive for verifying the correct aluminum grade used has increased:

  • Cast aluminum for engine blocks and rims
  • Magnesium alloys for rims
  • 5XXX and 6XXX aluminum alloys for automotive body panels

Major manufacturers are relying on suppliers to provide metal grade verification as part of their QA/QC process. This has been done in a variety of methods, including outside, destructive laboratory testing. The Rigaku handheld KT-100S LIBS analyzer offers a new on-site solution for easily identifying the most popular aluminum grades.

The Rigaku KT-100S LIBS analyzer is a viable answer to a company’s QA/QC requirement for metal alloy verification with its unique benefits:
