QuantoLux Challenge at Pressure Cooker Workshop

Pressure Cooker Workshop

Great response at the founding week Germany

From 12 to 16 November 2018, Rhein-Waal University of Applied Sciences took part in the nation’s largest campaign to strengthen entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial spirit – the founding week of Germany – with a total of twelve events. More than 300 participants prove that a great response was received.

The participation was prepared by the Center for Research, Innovation and Transfer (ZFIT) of the University of Applied Sciences as part of the project Innovation and Start-Up Offensive Niederrhein (IGNI) and in collaboration with academic staff and professors. A comprehensive program of events on Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Creativity was offered. The interactive workshops covered a wide range of topics. A highlight was the “Pressure Cooker Day” – an interactive workshop in the Technology Center Kleve. Three student teams, supported by academic staff from the university and a creativity coach, spent a day working on the real problems and challenges of three regional companies. In the end, they found interesting solutions for the Grantconsult GmbH, QuantoLux GmbH and Cumulus GmbH, which were presented in a pitch. In addition, there were also events on the topics of business etiquette, self-marketing and successful ideas pitches.Both the University of Applied Sciences Rhein-Waal – supported by the IGNI project – as well as their cooperation partners draw a positive balance after the joint action week. The existing cooperations should be further supported and expanded in the future.


Analysis of Steels with QLX3


QLX3 is an optical emission spectrometer with laser excitation. It allows the user to rapidly analyse sample material to quantitatively determine its elemental composition in weight percent per element.

Due to its innovative design, QLX3 is capable to analyse a wide range of sample material, metals, but also non-metal solid matter. Please also check for other application notes available.

The analytical performance of this instrument is comparable to spark-OES analysers, while QLX3 also extends this to smaller samples, wires, etc. And at much reduced operational expenses and with more benefits on time-savings and maintenance.

The report presents the calibrated ranges and performance data for the analysis of steel and its alloys.

The analytical app for steels is divided into five different sub-methods:

  • Fe – Orientation
  • Low Alloy Steel
  • Stainless Steel
  • Tool Steel
  • Manganese Steel

Quantolux on ANKIROS

Türkiyeye geldik !

ANKIROS 2018 – 14th International Iron-Steel and Foundry Technology, Machinery and Products Trade Fair from October 25-27, 2018, at Tuyap Fair & Congress Center, Buyukcekmece, Istanbul was a magnificent exhibition for Quantolux and marked the beginning of our global expansion strategy.

Ankiros provided the opportunity to introduce the QLX products with their wide range of solutions to users of different industries and potential distribution partners from Europe and the Middle East.

During three days, we had many interesting interviews with our future customer base and look forward to strong growth in the Turkish metallurgy industry.

Special thanks to the team of Döküm Makina who organised this event with a very short lead time. Their sales and service staff are now being trained to consult and serve Turkish customers on a Quantolux quality level. We look forward to a fruitful collaboration with all our friends in Turkey.

Special thanks to all the visitors on our booth for their interest and the warm welcome of Quantolux in Turkey.

QuantoLux at Control

Introducing new laser OES to the world

In April 2018 QuantoLux participated in the German quality-control exhibition CONTROL 2018 in Stuttgart. They shared their booth with the English spark spectrometer manufacturer ARUN Technology.
“Control is a nice venue for our market entry”, explains Andreas Kunz, “Its international appeal is a good opportunity for us to find distribution partners in Europe.”

Quantolux showed two of their three products on the show. The QLX3 is a benchtop OES for metal analysis and more. With its laser excitation and many other innovations it offers multiple benefits for applications in every single step of the metal lifecycle. Its capabilities exceed in many aspects what a classical spark spectrometer can do and some use cases even reach into typical XRF applications. The higher-end model QLX5 was not on exhibit, but offers an even more versatile and powerful plasma generator and a wider spectral range so that even ultra-UV applications can be covered.
