Coating Thickness Gauge For Electroplating and Electroless Coating : XDL

Coating thickness gauge for electroplating and electroless coatings XDL is an X-ray fluorescence measuring instrument for manual or automated coating thickness measurements on protective and decorative coatings. These are extensively acknowledged as a universally applicable energy dispersive X-ray measuring instruments which are widely used for non-destructive thickness measurements and analysis of thin coatings, for measurements on mass-produced parts and printed circuit boards as well as for the solution analysis. These are engineered under the firm direction of experienced quality controllers and following international industrial standard.
