LeadTracer-RoHS System with Sample Preparation Stand on Display at Electronics West 2008

Jan 28, 2008

RMD Instruments LLC, leading developers of radiation detector and systems technology, announces that it will demonstrate its innovative LeadTracer-RoHS XRF system, with sample preparation stand, in booth 849 at the upcoming Electronics West exhibition, scheduled to take place January 29-31, 2008 in Anaheim, Calif.

RMD Instruments� LeadTracer-RoHS XRF system is a major innovation and advancement of the XRF analysis technology, and is the only XRF system designed specifically for the electronics industry to provide fast, accurate and portable screening capability to meet RoHS directives.

The LeadTracer-RoHS XRF system has a unique approach as it analyses the entire body of the components, in a short period of time, rather than simply carrying out a surface analysis. This speeds up the RoHS screening requirements and improves the overall throughput of the quality control process. The LeadTracer-RoHS� ability to analyse the entire energy spectrum eliminates the possibility of false-negative indications in components that otherwise would have found their way into the manufacturing process. The use of non-compatible components such as those containing lead in a lead-free process will result in contamination of the solder pot, which is costly and environmentally undesirable. Elimination of non-compatible components from the process saves time, money, and leads to improvement of the line output.

Additionally, the consistent flow of parts will reduce the maintenance and repair of the machinery used in electronics assembly. RoHS directives restricting the use of certain substances in electronics have created numerous challenges in both the screening and implementation process. LeadTracer-RoHS� innovative approach with enhanced detection capabilities provides the screening tool that the industry needs to meet the numerous RoHS directive challenges.

Sample Preparation Stand: The LeadTracer-RoHS XRF system now comes with a sample preparation stand developed with the needs of the end user in mind. The stand has been ergonomically designed for optimum ease-of-use and accuracy and is equipped with RMD Instruments exclusive �quick disconnect� grip to enable the user to operate the hand-held, portable LeadTracer-RoHS as a bench top unit.
