X-Ray fluorescenceAt PTP we do not take quality for granted, our inspection team work hand in hand with the Production department and our Laboratory. A variety of inspection, analysis, testing and monitoring techniques are employed to ensure we maintain the highest standards. We carry out non-destructive testing of coating thickness, to achieve this we use X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) and Isoscope instruments.

We always aim to manage quality in a positive and proactive way providing feedback and advice to our customers. Our Quality Management System is certificated to BS EN ISO 9001.

X-Ray Fluorescence:

X-Ray fluorescence (XRF) is a technique widely used for the assessment of electronic components. A high-energy beam of incident X-rays is directed onto the coated object in question using a precision collimator. The incident X-ray beam produces photons (or fluorescence) at a characteristic energy level. The intensity of the signal at a given energy level is proportional to the thickness of the deposited element and with the use of standards, the coating thickness can be determined.
