Raw Material Inspection and Analysis

Ensuring the quality of incoming raw materials is a critical first step in most industrial processes. Identification of non-conforming materials can improve operational performance and save valuable time. Quality control is at least equally important during the manufacturing process to produce better quality products and to increase profitability. Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is an easy-to-use measurement tool for rapid, non-destructive, material inspection. NIR spectroscopy can determine both the identity and purity of raw materials and allows for non-destructive sampling and material analysis (sometimes even directly through plastic bags) thereby eliminating the need for messy and time consuming sampling and sample prep associated with many traditional analytical laboratory methods. Results can be measured in seconds allowing for a more efficient assessment of raw materials to enable more timely decisions.
