Skyray XRF of Seaford, Del. has introduced a budget-priced compact desktop XRF model with the capability of detecting lead, cadmium and other hazardous substances in finished goods. The EDX-3000 x-ray fluorescence analyzer is priced in the $30,000 range. The product was initially developed for precious metal testing applications, aimed at determining gold purity analysis and various related tests. The company added an HS-Package (collimator and filter package) to provide the sensitivity required to meet the detection limits of various toxic metals regulations. Skyray chose the EDX-3000 for the HS-Package because it is the company’s lowest-cost XRF analyzer and provides an economical option.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
