metals_mainIn Metal Industry, checks during all the production processes are extremely necessary, starting from raw material control and primary material fusion, up to quality verification before shipping the final product.

During all manufacturing phases, forming, molding, die-casting, extrusion, mechanical manufacturing, it is necessary evaluate different chemical-physical parameters in order to give the essential information for production cycle.

GNR offers advanced solutions to perform different and wide analytical tasks in the metal industry. 

Metal Processing

For Metal Processing Optical Emission Spectrometry (OES) using Arc/Spark excitation is the traditional reference technique for fast and accurate  elemental analysis of solid metallic samples.

It is a well proven technology nowadays used in all the metal  industry  sector from production control to R&D, from incoming material inspection to scrap sorting.

GNR offers PMT-based or CCD-based spectrometers, Bench Top, Floor Stand and Portable systems to provide high uptime and stable performance for enhanced productivity.

Beside the metal OES line for chemical composition, GNR offer an innovative solution for testing Aluminum Electrolytic Bath by a combination of XRD and XRF techniques.

Moreover the analysis of precious metals could be performed with a non-destructive technique using XRF spectrometer. 

Metals and Automotive

Several analytical tecniques could be adopted during the production and testing of metals and work pieces in the Metals and Automotive Industries. 

For instance Stress Analysis is crucial in the Automotive domain and GNR is proud to introduce the Stress-X instrument already installed and working properly in different automotive manufacturing site all over the world. 

GNR is able to offer instruments able to cover the following applications: 

- Residual Stress Analysis 

- Residual Austenite Analysis

- Determination of elementary distribution (homogeneity) of metal products, of micro inclusions through OES and mapping of material (via OPA)
