Automated Material Analysis with the Vanta™ iX In-Line XRF Analyzer

The Olympus Vanta™ iX in-line X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzer automates material analysis and alloy identification on the manufacturing line, thus giving users confidence in their products.

  • Designed to work around the clock
  • Provides immediate results for live process monitoring and 100% inspection
  • Configured to provide pass or fail results, material chemistry and precise grade ID

100% Inspection for Metal Fabrication of Tubes, Bars, and Rods

For organizations that implement 24/7 process control and Industry 4.0 practices to validate alloys with pass or fail analyses, the Vanta iX analyzer allows material verification and lot/heat control for the tube, billet, rod and bar manufacturing, as well as tailored components and machined parts.

Automating the testing process with a Vanta iX analyzer adds a competitive edge to users’ finished product, as they can show that their materials are fully tested and verified.

Scanning and Monitoring for Ore-Grade Control in Mining

The Vanta iX analyzer allows core scanning and on-belt analysis for geological processing and mining, with live outcomes to track process variability and guarantee the consistency of the ore grade. At the time of on-belt analysis, the Vanta iX analyzer offers process validation and blending verification of concentrates.

Fast and Accurate Elemental Analysis for Continuous Quality Control

Similar to all Vanta electronics, the Vanta iX analyzer works rapidly, while providing consistent and actionable outcomes to guide crucial decisions.

  • Fast, precise results—the electronics of the analyzers offer high throughput, count rate and stability
  • High resolution—identification of an array of alloy grades, such as heavy and light elements
  • Efficient—a silicon drift detector (SDD) and the well-established Axon Technology™ found in each Vanta analyzer

Easily Integrates into a Variety of Production Systems

The Vanta iX analyzer is compact, multipurpose and can be easily installed. The mounting holes provided on each side can be used to mount the analyzer onto robotics and other similar systems. There is no exterior control box, which means users can effortlessly handle the analyzer using the PLC and discrete wire or a Vanta Connect API.

Connector options:

  • USB
  • AUX DC power
  • Ethernet (RJ-45), allowing Power over Ethernet
  • Discrete I/O (16 pins)

Rugged for Greater Uptime in Manufacturing Environments

The Vanta iX analyzer has been designed to resist dust, high levels of vibration, acoustical and electromagnetic noise and moisture of production facilities for improved uptime and reliability.

  • IP54 rated
  • Vibration tested (MIL-STD)
  • Developed to operate from –10 °C to 50 °C (14 °F to 122 °F) with constant testing

An integrated heat sink reduces the internal temperature, but fan attachment points are also provided if extra cooling is required. The Vanta iX analyzer enables tool-less window changes for quick maintenance.
