The use of coatings is all around us and it continues to increase. Coatings are used for a variety of reasons; however, ultimately coatings are used to improve product performance. Many applications in the electronics industry use coatings for improved electrical properties, but coatings are also used for anti-corrosion and wear resistance in a wide variety of applications and industries.
Bowman’s many years of product development, applications experience, and software engineering have enabled them to provide a cost-effective solution that not only optimizes X-ray fluorescence analyzer technology, but brings it to a new level.
Overview of Technology/Benefit
X-ray Fluorescence is a powerful, accurate, and well-established method of coating thickness measurement as well as the elemental microanalysis of materials. The Bowman X-ray System is capable of both the qualitative and quantitative determination of coating thickness as well as the determination of the composition of multiple elements.
What we have is a high-precision coating thickness measurement system so powerful that it also provides elemental analysis in a reduced footprint package that is less than half the weight, and approximately half the cost of other PIN detector systems. Bowman’s goal is to simplify your job by making a stable, reliable, easy-to-use, cost-effective Bowman XRF elemental analysis system with performance you can trust on every measurement.
