Summer’s Most Important News for XRF Users

We’re With You! – at our industry’s most important events!
We’re With You! – at our industry’s most important events!

SEMICON West was our best opportunity to demo the new release of ARCHER™, the most important software development in a decade for XRF analyzers. Managers from headquarters and both coasts also presented the new, cleanroom-ready A Series, which uses polycapillary optics to focus the beam to 7.5 µm FWH - world’s smallest beam size for coating thickness analysis using XRF.

Learn more about this new addition to the Bowman XRF Benchtop suite.

And visit the global “events” page for our trade show calendar. We hope to see you in the next 16 weeks, when Bowman XRFs will be exhibited at 14 major trade shows!
