Portable X-Ray Residual Stress Analyzer


The μ-X360s is the world’s lightest and smallest residual stress analyzer. It’s a non-destructive measurement system for metals to obtain the residual stress, retained austenite and FWHM data based on X-ray diffraction technique.

Portable X-ray Residual Stress Analyzer

How the analyzer works

  1. Place a sample under the sensor unit.
  2. Start measurement wizard.
  3. Adjust incident angle, working distance, and measurement spot.
  4. Close the shielding door and hit the start button.
  5. Result is displayed after 60 seconds.
