XRF Demonstrations Now Available On-Line!

Quickshot XRF works hard to offer our analyzers at a low-cost.  Part of the reason that we can offer low-costs to the companies that are choosing the QSX solution is that we don’t have demonstration units located throughout North America.  Understandably, however, many of you want to see the instruments in action prior to making the full investment in XRF Technology.

Due to the need for demonstrations we have developed web-cam demonstrations of our desktop analyzers.  We have already provided several demo’s of our QSX-79T Gold Tester on-line and they have worked out very well…allowing the interested party an opportunity to see the systems design and review the software during a calibration/measurment.

A new update to on-line demonstrations also allows the person reviewing the system to actually take control of the XRF Analyzers Software…so it is as if they are sitting in front of a machine.  This is very helpful to convey the ease-of-use that the software package for gold and precious metal analysis provides.

Please review a clip from one of the QSX-79T demonstrations (linked here) and contact the Quickshot XRF Sales Office to schedule a demo for your testing interest.

* note * We can offer on-line demonstrations of our Handheld XRF, however, we still suggest a one-week rental that has the option of being credited 100% towards the purchase price.   Contact QSX to learn why.

New (shorter) Handheld XRF Video Demo

A new video demonstration has been posted to the Quickshot XRF Youtube Channelthanks to toy cheese.

Toy Cheese Lead Test
Yes, cheese.  I had the chance to visit the main QSX facility recently and also visit with family that lives near by.  One night my nephew was chewing on a piece of toy cheese from a kids kitchen set and I thought “I hope that doesn’t contain lead”.  So, I took it into the office and tested the toy on the Quickshot XRF Handheld Analyzer using the CPSIA Screening software.  Luckily; it showed lead content as a non-detect…so he can chew away (?).

After running that test I wanted to tape a shorter video than our previous one on the Handheld XRF Analyzer.  The video runs through the initialization and measurement procedures related to hazardous substance testing.

You can probably tell from looking around our website but detection of lead, cadmium and other heavy metals is a major application for XRF technology.  The QSX handheld system performs very well on the application and has been chosen by a variety of companies looking to screen per the CPSIA regulations – sporting good manufacturers, childrens jewelry importers, textile and clothing manufacturers and more.

At Quickshot XRF the moddo is “consider us for the price…choose us for the performance” and that is what people have been doing.  Enjoy the video; more will be posted soon and feel free to make any suggestions…
