OES in automation
PANalytical and OBLF, a solid partnership in laboratory automation
For many years there has been a very close relationship between PANalytical and OBLF where OBLF’s optical emission spectrometers are integrated into PANalytical’s automated laboratory systems for customers in the metals market. As both companies believe in exceptional product quality and robustness together with strong focus on customer satisfaction, the combination provides solid solution for customers in this demanding market. OBLF’s optical emission spectrometers can be integrated by adding the PANalytical’s automation module or even integrate them into the unique hybrid XRF/OES solution TEAMWorks.
All OBLF spectrometers are identified by their robustness, high performance, ease of use and limited maintenance requirements. We deliver all instruments factory pre-calibrated running all required recalibration samples to ensure a proper match between the individual spectrometers and the customers' applications.
The OBLF QSN 750-II and QSG 750-II can comfortably be integrated in automation systems where the handling of the sample is performed by a non-human device (like a robot). The OBLF GS 1000-II, QSN 750-II and QSG 750-II Optical Emission Spectrometers can even be integrated with the PANalytical simultaneous XRF unit Axios FAST forming the unique hybrid XRF/OES solution 'TEAMWorks'.
In case the automation of the Optical Emission Spectrometer is performed by PANalytical, a dedicated robot enclosure (also holding the control- and recalibration samples) ensures full-safe operation even allowing for manual measurement of samples without closing down the automation system.
