The XLNCE SMX-ILH XRF system is yield management and process control platform that provides built-in and remote module configurations to enable an in-line atmospheric analysis of coating composition, as well as thickness measurements of flexible and rigid substrates.
This system enables the movement of coated material through the measuring enclosure for the analysis of the entire panel in static or across the gradient locations via a motorized, programmable single or dual integrated measuring module.
The XLNCE SMX-ILH patented Thermal Shield enables collecting real-time XRF data of hot substrates up to 300 °C, thereby decreasing panel dwell times and improving the process throughput. The measurement quality is further improved by a dedicated Z-axis height adjustment feature that accommodates bow and warp along with planarity deviations common to larger panels, particularly at higher temperatures.
