End-to-end quality assurance and control is no longer a nice to have but a must have in manufacturing and fabrication.

From incoming material verification to factory floor quality control to final inspection and warehouse inventory control, testing the elemental composition of materials at all stages of the production process helps to increase productivity and eliminate waste.

Join our experts as they give their recommendations to help you accelerate your material testing programs and protect your business’ reputation.

Here’s what we’ll cover during the webinar:

  • Basics of material analysis techniques: XRF, LIBS, and spark OES
  • How each of these techniques complement each other
  • Real-life customer examples
