- Model NEX LS - Process Coatings EDXRF Analyzer

The Rigaku NEX LS process EDXRF analyzer delivers non-destructive, multi-element analyses for web and coil applications. Rapidly measure, with realtime scanning, for elements aluminum (Al) through uranium (U) to determine coat weight or coating thickness.

Cross & machine direction profile

Designed explicitly to meet the needs of challenging conditions found in coating processes, the Rigaku NEX LS helps maintain routine quality control. Featuring third-generation EDXRF technology, the NEX LS represents the next evolution of scanning process coatings analyzers for web applications. This instrument’s measuring head assembly comes from the well-established NEX Series high-resolution benchtop instrument. This proven technology ensures superior analytical performance and reliability for the non-destructive elemental analysis of aluminum through uranium. The NEX LS consists of a measurement head mounted to a motorized frame, which carries the head back and forth across a moving web (or coil). Real-time data display as a graphical cross direction and machine direction profile. The NEX LS serves many process control coating applications; however, the most common include release coatings, converters, vacuum-formed plastics, and other industries using silicone oils as barrier layers, release coatings, or denesting agents. Realtime scanning, for tighter process control tolerances, takes EDXRF technology for silicone coatings analysis to the next level.
