More Information : Hitachi High-Tech - Model X-MET8000CG - Handheld XRF Analyser


The X-MET8000CG handheld energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) analyser provides rapid and reliable regulatory compliance screening of consumer goods, from raw materials, to components, to finished products, at various stages: incoming inspection, stock inventory, checks of imported goods, and manufacturing quality control.

For manufacturers, retailers and importers, the X-MET8000CG improves the regulatory compliance management process by preventing costly rejects, reworks or recalls, identifying restricted or hazardous elements before they enter the manufacturing process or supply chain. For these companies a focus on regulatory compliance means:

  • Increased operational transparency
  • The putting in place of reasonable testing programs (RTP)

The optimised geometry of the large-area SDD (silicon drift detector) and X-ray tube delivers exceptional speed and superior sensitivity, enabling low limits of detection for optimum screening accuracy, meaning a reduction in the number of costly analyses performed at thrid-party laboratories. A few of the many advantages of the X-MET8000CG are:

  • Conforms to IEC Method 62321, as per Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) rules
  • Easy-to-use - Intuitive, icon-driven user interface requiring minimal operator training, in Regulated Goods mode, the analyser automatically selects the right calibration and the customisable display provides colour-coded pass/fail messages
  • Powerful data management - Store up to 100,000 results including spectra and sample image, share them using Wifi and print them via Bluetooth
  • Flexible report generator to create professional customised reports including results, spectra, company logo, operator information, camera image etc.; included as standard
  • XRF is a non-destructive technique, so that items tested can be kept for future records or re-introduced into the supply chain
  • Minimises downtime - Quick-swap analysis window: no tools required to change if broken or dirty
  • Maximises productivity - Up and running in seconds, results in seconds and a 10-12 hours battery life enable a high measurement throughput
  • Truly portable - small with great ergonomics, the X-MET8000CG only weighs 1.5kg (with battery). Take the analyser to the sample, not the other way around!

With its low cost per analysis, the X-MET8000CG makes the perfect tool for 1st party screening, alongside 3rd party laboratory testing.

Fast and Reliable Regulatory Compliance Screening Using Handheld XRF Analysis

Manufacturers, suppliers and importers of electronic equipment, children’s products and other consumer goods, are affected by the regulations regarding the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS), which can impact businesses in Europe, as well as other directives (e.g. CPSIA - Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act - of 2008, Packaging directive, WEEE – Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment, etc). So manufacturers and retailers alike, need to meet strict regulations on levels of chlorine (Cl), cadmium (Cd), lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), chromium (Cr), Bromine (Br) and other restricted toxic elements in plastics, product packaging, metals or mixed materials.

X-MET8000CG for the rapid and reliable incoming inspection and screening of...

  • Consumer products for restricted toxic elements
  • Metal parts/fasteners for composition analysis and grade verification
  • Raw polymers and plastic items for Cl and Br
  • Packaging material for Cd, Pb and Hg
  • Electronic components, connectors, cables etc.for Cd, Pb, Br, Hg, Cr and other elements
  • Solder – incoming bar stock as well as ladle dips and solder balls for Sn, Pb, Cu, Ag, Bi, Cd etc.
  • High-reliability electronic components to ensure the presence of required Pb levels

X-MET8000CG - Easy to use, powerful & provides reliable results

  • Easy to use with minimal operator training required
  • Fast, gives reliable results in seconds; so a high analysis throughput
  • Screening with no or little sample preparation; no need for solvents or expensive sample preparation equipment
  • Know what you are measuring, the integrated camera provides accurate positioning of the analyser on the sample
  • X-MET8000CG automatically detects the sample matrix and selects the right calibration for the sample type
  • Get a result that is representative of the whole sample, using the averaging function. An accurate, representative result when testing inhomogeneous samples
  • Flexible and powerful data management and connectivity
  • Rapid, with a typical testing time of 30-90s

Ultimate performance combined with superior versatility

  • Fastest start-up: ready in about 20 seconds
  • Longest battery life on the market (10-12 hours)
  • Largest screen on the market (4.3”) for great results visibility
  • Low limits of detection for optimum screening accuracy
  • Rugged, built with rubber bumpers to protect against shocks, a large heatsink for optimum stability, an impact-resistant plastic housing and is IP54 rated for protection against dust and splashed water
  • Light stand and safety shield for the measurement of small parts
  • Benchtop stand, cleverly transforms the X-MET8000CG into a benchtop analyser to measure awkward shapes or small samples

Compliance Screening - Regulations Examples

With Regulated Goods mode, the X-MET8000CG automatically detects the sample matrix and selects the right calibration. Handheld XRF enables the rapid screening of regulated elements for compliance to the following directives and regulations:

  • CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) of 2008
  • RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances)
  • WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment)
  • ELV (End of Life Vehicles)
  • Packaging
  • Halogen-free
  • Proposition 65
  • EN 71-3
  • ...And more
