The manufacturing industry has little to no tolerance for error. That means suppliers often need to know the exact composition of the metallic alloys they’re dealing with.

Mobile optical emission spectrometers (OES) have gained popularity in PMI testing. This is likely due to their portability and accuracy.

In this #MastersofPMI episode of The Manufacturing Show, co-host Chris Carolan covers:

  • How optical emission spectroscopy identifies elemental components in metal
  • Maintenance techniques for a mobile OES
  • Pros and cons of using a mobile OES for PMI testing
  • Common mistakes to look out for when using a mobile OES for PMI testing

The #MastersofPMI series is hosted by Chris Carolan of the Metal Analysis Group.
