K Series Satisfies Need for Flexibility and Precision
October, 2023 – Quality departments and contract shops that test many different plated parts need an XRF analyzer with an expansive measurement area, selectable spot sizes, and high levels of both precision – and speed.
Bowman’s K Series XRF meets all of these requirements. It has a 12″x 12″ measurable area for parts up to 9″ tall. Selectable spot sizes accommodate a wide range of features; focal distances are from .25″ to 3.5″.
A cantilever door design gives operators easy access; a servo motor-driven programmable stage streamlines sample positioning. Table-view functionality images the entire measurable area and allows the operator to navigate to any location with a single click.
The standard K Series configuration includes a 4-position multi-collimator. Variable focus simplifies measurements in recessed areas. Programs can use pattern matching and automatic focus for the most precise measurements. As with all Bowman XRF systems, the K Series features a Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) and long-life micro focus X-ray tube.
Bowman’s K Series is a robust system built and backed by the technology leader in XRF analysis. It is the 9th XRF in the Bowman benchtop portfolio.
