6th generation Rigaku MiniFlex benchtop XRD

6th generation Rigaku MiniFlex X-ray diffraction system

Rigaku Corporation is pleased to announce its attendance at the 2017 Materials Science and Technology meeting and exhibition (MS&T 17) at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA, October 8-12, 2017. MS&T is an annual materials science conference offering a unique technical program addressing structure, properties, processing and performance across the materials community.

Rigaku, dedicated to the development of X-ray technology to examine the structure and composition of synthetic and natural materials, provides the world’s most complete line of X-ray analytical equipment and is presenting its diverse range of analytical instrumentation at Booth # 608.

New from Rigaku is the sixth generation Rigaku MiniFlex benchtop X-ray diffraction (XRD) instrument. The new MiniFlex X-ray diffractometer is a multipurpose analytical instrument that can determine: phase identification and quantification, percent (%) crystallinity, crystallite size and strain, lattice parameter refinement, Rietveld refinement, and molecular structure.

The new MiniFlex system delivers speed and sensitivity through innovative technology advances, including the HyPix-400 MF 2D hybrid pixel array detector (HPAD) together with an available 600W X-ray source and new 8-position automatic sample changer.

Also from Rigaku, the Rigaku SmartLab intelligent X-ray diffraction system. The SmartLab system is a multi-purpose, high-resolution diffractometer designed for all XRD applications, from powder and thin film diffraction, to SAXS and in-plane scattering. The SmartLab Guidance software provides an intelligent interface that guides users through each experiment.

The Rigaku Supermini200 wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometer is the only commercially available benchtop WDXRF spectrometer. It features newly designed and simplified software and an improved footprint, combining all of the advantages of traditional WDXRF elemental analysis systems in a smaller, more economical package.

The MS&T exposition showcases a wide variety of equipment and services to the automotive, aerospace, instrumentation, medical, oilfield and energy industries.
