Nicholsons UK Invests in X-ray Technology

Nicholsons UK has bought into X-ray Fluorescent (XRF) technology. The Non Destructive Testing method enables rapid and frequent analysis of material composition and applied coating thickness. This should provide superior part measurement data compared to alternative methods of testing. It should also improve monitoring of the Nicholsons NADCAP approved chemical plating process.

The capability is currently on trial for specific parts and processes, but is already providing excellent information. It is anticipated that it will make a significant contribution to Nicholsons ongoing drive to underpin part quality and process control.
