Cutting-Edge Technologies in Electronics, Precision Instruments and Optical Techniques

Residual stress measurement becomes much easier than before.

Meeting the needs of the times, our unique technology brings customers easy operation in evaluating Residual Stress and Retained Austenite by the X-ray diffraction technique.

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.
XRD Residual Stress Analyzer


A cost-effective, compact and high-precision way to non-destructively determine residual stress in polycrystalline materials.

A compact, lightweight system that measures crystallinity, plane orientation, and more.

With this in-plane hardness tester, hardness variation can be determined. Applicable to machining burn or grinding burn evaluation.

A leading provider for DVD and Blu-ray disc test equipment. From R&D to QA purpose, we provide quality testers and services.
