Laser precise, Rigaku strong, cutting-edge analysis
Designed for on-the-spot identification of the most difficult alloy grades, Katana™ represents the latest in handheld metal analysis. Katana employs laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) to enable durable and accurate alloy identification for use in:
• Scrap metal sorting
• Quality assurance in metal fabrication
• Positive material identification (PMI) in petrochemical operations
Advanced handheld LIBS performance
Utilizing a 1064 nm Class 3B laser excitation, Katana offers superior light element identification in metal and alloy applications to ensure profitability and product quality. Elements such as lithium (Li), beryllium (Be), magnesium (Mg), and aluminum (Al) can now be accurately identified in 1-2 seconds.
