The X-MET 8000 Optimum is ideal for analysing metals, soils, wood, plastics, glass, oils and more. The analysis is non-destructive and leaves no test mark.

The X-MET8000 range of handheld X-ray fluorescence analyzers delivers the performance needed for rapid alloy grade identification and accurate chemistry of a wide variety of materials (solid and powder metals, polymers, wood, solutions, soil, ores, minerals etc). The X-MET handheld XRF analyzer (HHXRF) is practical, robust and easy to use to deliver results you can trust.

To prevent product failures and their costly consequences to the livelihood and reputation of manufacturing companies, quality control and assurance testing at various stages of the production process is essential: from the control of incoming material and components, to the final check of manufactured parts prior to shipment. Handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers are often the tool of choice for quality control, because they are easy to use and offer rapid, on-site, non-destructive analysis.

Capitalizing on the success of its X-MET7000 Series, Oxford Instruments has raised the bar with its latest range of handheld XRF analyzers, the X-MET8000 Series. The optimized combination of a high performance X-ray tube and Oxford Instruments large area silicon-drift detector (SDD) delivers the performance required for even the most demanding QA/QC applications

Ultimate performance for reliable material verification

  • Superior light elements (Mg to S) analysis for fast and accurate analysis of most commercial alloys, including aluminum alloys, Si and Al bronzes, etc.
  • Low limits of detection, for accurate grade separation. (e.g. 303-304, 6061-6063)
  • Fast analysis and accurate grade identification: get laboratory quality results in seconds, and reduce testing cost and time.
  • Optimum efficiency: lightweight (1.5kg), small, and ergonomic design, with up to 10-12 hours battery life.
  • Fast start-up: be up and running in seconds.
  • Automatic sample size compensation for accurate testing of pipes, rods, wires down to 1mm diameter, welds, fasteners, turnings, chips, etc.

Optimised calibrations for results you can trust

The X-MET8000 offers the best of both worlds with a robust fundamental parameters (FP) method, and empirical calibrations (traceable to certified reference materials) for superior precision and accuracy. Simply select the application that meets your requirements, and analyze alloys in seconds.

Powerful data management

  • Store up to 100,000 results including spectra and sample image (if camera is fitted).
  • Download results and reports directly to a USB memory stick, to a PC or a network share using
  • Wifi or Bluetooth, using a CSV format or tamper-proof PDF for ultimate data integrity.
  • Create customized, professional looking reports using the X-MET report generator (no software installation needed): include company logo, sample image, results, spectra, additional sample information (e.g. description, location, batch number) etc.

Easy to use

  • Intuitive, icon-driven user interface: minimal operator training required.
  • Large 4.3” color touchscreen for excellent results visibility, even in direct sunlight. Easy operation, even with gloves on.
  • Quick-swap analysis window: no tool required to change the analysis window when broken or dirty.
  • Customizable results screen for fast decision making: display information that is important to you, e.g. alloy grade, elemental composition, pass/fail messages, elements listed in your chosen order.
  • Compact and balanced design.
  • Optional integrated camera for accurate measurement positioning.
  • Optional small-spot collimator (3mm diameter) to isolate specific features (e.g. in-service fasteners, welds) from surrounding materials and measure them accurately.
  • Availability: 10 In Stock
