Calibration Standards for Tool Steels / Cutting Tools

XRF Standards

Bowman supplies reference standards for precisely calibrating any XRF coating thickness and elemental analysis system.

We provide single-layer foils in every common thickness variant, for aluminum, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, copper, gold, iron, indium, lead, nickel and electroless nickel, palladium, platinum, rhodium, silver, tantalum, tin, titanium, and zinc.

XRF Calibration Standards and Certification

Manufacturers of milling, drilling, turning and other lathe and machining center tooling trust Bowman’s decades of experience in precision x-ray testing to assure the accuracy of their measurements. Bowman supplies single foil XRF calibration standards for all XRF equipment and applications.

With XRF analyzer certification, we calibrate and certify your XRF equipment to NIST* standards, and also certify your current reference standards.

XRF calibration procedures are performed in-house at Bowman’s ISO/IEC 17025 Accredited Lab.
