Rigaku launches KT-100 Series of LIBS metal analyzers

Rigaku Analytical Devices showcased its handheld KT 100 Series of metal alloy analyzers. 
The Rigaku KT-100 Series of handheld laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) metal analyzers provide on-the-spot identification of a variety of alloy grades. The KT-100 Basic analyzer is a new, cost-effective solution for accurate alloy identification for quality assurance of alloy groups, such as stainless steels, low alloy steels, nick alloys, and cobalt alloys. The KT Series of LIBS analyzers offer unique auto surface preparation with its Drill-Down™ feature and is considerably smaller and lighter than other handheld LIBS analyzers currently available. Another major benefit to the user is that, because the KT-100 Series of handheld LIBS analyzers utilizes a laser excitation source, there are minimal to no regulatory licensing requirements.
The KT-100 portfolio is designed to provide the ideal analytical tools for use in fabrication shops, plant environments and scrap metal yards, as evident by their MIL-STD 810G drop-test certification and IP-54 dust protection rating.
