Coventya, Inc. has recently invested strategically into additional instrumentation to bolster the capabilities of the Research & Development group, as well as the Technical Service Departments of the organization in the US.  These powerful new tools will be utilized to further develop & improve new—as well as existing–processes & products congruent with customer need.  These sensitive new technologies will also be essential in helping to troubleshoot, characterize, solve, and prevent issues as we strive to help our customers optimize their applications.  Some of the new instrumentation that has been added includes the following:

  • KEYENCE VK-X1000 Series (3D Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope):
    Laser microscopes like the Keyence VK-X1000 are designed to obtain non-contact profile, roughness, and even thin film thickness measurements with resolution down to nanometer range.  This instrumentation can be critical for examining surface defects on a microscopic scale, while measuring depth, width, as well as frequency of anomalies in coating surfaces.

    A benchtop Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometer (EDXRF), this unit provides another sensitive, non-destructive option for elemental characterizations & analyses of coatings and materials without requiring to pump down under vacuum (a Helium purge / flush option is included when added sensitivity is desirable).  Elemental analysis can include sodium (Na) through Uranium (U), in matrices such as solids & alloys, liquids, powders, etc.
    This OLYMPUS stereo microscope (coupled with a 5MP Camera), allows for detailed lower-magnification inspections, documentation, and illumination of defects & items of interest on almost any sample or coating surface.  It is critical to properly evaluate & illustrate the appearance of surfaces of interest prior to subjection to in-depth analyses (i.e. cross-sectional investigation, scanning electron microscopy & elemental analyses, etc.).  This combination of instrumentation, software, and LED lighting allows for the thorough inspections that necessarily act as a perfect segue into microscopic evaluations that often require destruction of parts.
