Innov-X SMTA exhibits to focus on Lead Free & RoHS compliance
Jun 07, 2007
Visitors to Innov-X's Booth at the SMTA's Upper Midwest Vendor Show and SMTA Successful Lead-Free RoHS Strategies Conference will learn how using X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) can screen components, parts and PCB's for compliance with the European Union's RoHS Directives.
Recent studies indicate that up to 50% of supplier Certifications stating products are RoHS compliant, yet fail to pass testing. Portable XRF in many cases provides a simple, fast, non-destructive screening method to confirm suppliers' certifications and mitigate your risk. Innov-X offers the most complete range of benchtop to handheld XRF instruments.
NEW Handheld XRF products include a revolutionary Handheld Laser-Focus Camera System for small-spot testing. This hand-held XRF captures a digital picture AND test results for compliance RoHS screening tests - all in the world's most portable handheld XRF Analyzer.
Innov-X handheld XRF analyzers are simple yet effective screening devices that can be taken virtually anywhere. They have the ability to alert users to banned metals, using pass or fail criteria. They will document total Cr, Br, Pb, Hg, and Cd. In just seconds, prohibited materials may be identified and quantified.
Innov-X is helping manufacturers and component suppliers achieve RoHS Compliance. "We have cut pricing virtually to our cost as a means of helping the U.S. manufacturers become compliant. This is our way to help the electronic component suppliers, OEM's, and contract manufacturers mitigate the impact of RoHS. It is a complex directive and we are helping suppliers and manufacturers reduce the impact on their operations. Our new XRF rental program and RoHS-Star™ software demonstrates our commitment to supporting this vital industry." notes Don Sackett, President of Innov-X.
