Webinar: How to Measure Coating Thickness in 3 Steps

Keep Quality Moving

October 16, 2018

In the car parts manufacturing process, material quality must be ensured. To maintain quality standards, certain aspects must be considered, such as corrosion protection, ensuring conductivity, and improving optical design properties. To help ensure the cost-effectiveness, components are coated with a range of different materials.

Olympus Vanta XRF technologies can analyze layers of coating with a thickness of between 10 nm and 50 µm and up to three layers on one substrate. The Vanta analyzer’s portability means that it can be used on-site with instant results on small and large objects. Thanks to its easy calibration and user-friendly design, you can maintain the highest quality standards in a cost-effective manner.

Agenda of this webinar:

  • General introduction to nondestructive XRF material inspection
  • What's possible with XRF technology and what’s not
  • Examples of thickness analyses on different materials

In this webinar, you can learn how to improve coating thickness measurements on automotive or comparable parts.
