New XRF Equipment for Sale:  The Bowman X-Ray System

Bowman is a new generation of XRF instrument built by the team that constructed the CMI XRF systems.  This next generation CMI has 7X better Detector resolution with better stability and sensitivity. It is built on a modular platform that allows for easy service and provides a big cost savings solution. We call it smart engineering. This allows us to sell this XRF at a very good price point. Translation, nobody beats our price.

  • Solid State Pin Diode and SDD Detectors provides greater resolution, stability and sensitivity

BOWMAN is proud to introduce the second generation of cutting edge XRF instrumentation, the Xray Optics System. The small spot, high flux x-ray beam and large window SDD detector combine for unmatched speed and performance. It can be the perfect tool for minimizing wasted time, money, and materials.

  • Poly-capillary optics achieves hundred times higher flux than collimation system at the same distance from the source
  • 15um spot size or 80 um spot size
  • This provides best precision at shortest test time with small spot
  • Flux Density Gain Up To 5 Orders Of Magnitude Compared To Collimator
  • Thin coating measurements on Wafers, PCB, lead frames, and thin wires
