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.

As a pre-launch QLX1, a portable analyzer, was also shown. QLX1 is meant to close the gap between mobile spark spectrometers and handheld XRF and LIBS. A complete portable solution for the analysis of all elements in metals. This also includes important elements like carbon, phosphorus, and sulphur. Even nitrogen is possible. The market entry of QLX1 will mark a milestone in portable metal testing.

All QLX instruments feature the QLX 4.0 spectrometer software. During the development of this software, focus was put on usability. “We wanted to create a spectrometer software that is as simple to use as a smart phone.” says Mischa Ounanian, managing director and head of the R&D team. Indeed a fantastic user experience that QLX 4.0 offers.

The QuantoLux portfolio currently focusses on applications in the metals world. The technology used, however, is not limited to this. There is much more to discover…
