Expert-Approved OES Analyzers for Fabrication from Metal Analysis Group


Understanding the elemental composition of metals is crucial for adapting to market-specific challenges. Thermo Scientific OES (Optical Emission Spectrometry) instrumentation supports multiple stages of the metal fabrication process, from initial screening of incoming raw materials to end-product validation and quality control. These OES solutions are also commonly used in laboratory settings to test the composition and structure of emerging materials.

Mobile spark OES technology plays a significant role in Positive Material Identification (PMI) safety inspections and PMI QA/QC processes. It is the only reliable method to analyze elements that can affect alloy properties critical for fabrication. This technology ensures that the metal composition meets the necessary specifications and standards, thereby maintaining the integrity and quality of the fabricated products.
