Robot-assisted measurements of surface free-energy

| By Chemical Engineering



At the Hannover trade fair last month, this company introduced its Large Surface Analyzer (LSA), a positioning robot combined with the Mobile Surface Analyzer (MSA) contact-angle measuring instrument. The system performs fast, fully automated surface free-energy (SFE) determinations at freely defined positions on large samples. The system is particularly well suited to quality-assurance applications on cleaned, pretreated or coated materials. — Krüss GmbH, Hamburg, Germany
