The 1000th SPECTROMAXx metal analyser sold by Spectro has been delivered to AWG of Giengen, Germany. A supplier of mobile and stationary fire protection equipment, AWG requires a metal analyser in its foundry for alloy control prior to casting.
The SPECTROMAXx was launched two years ago. According to Spectro, which is based in Kleve, Germany, the SPECTROMAXx’s SPECTRO Plasma Generator sample excitation system provides more accurate and stable results than a conventional excitation source.
