WILMINGTON, Mass., Dec. 8, 2016 — Rigaku Analytical Devices Inc.’s KT-100 Katana laser-induced breakdown spectroscopic handheld analyzer was named one of the 100 most innovative products of 2016 by R&D Magazine.

Rigaku Analyzer Named Top 100 Product by R&D MagWinning in the analytical/testing category, the analyzer is certified as “rugged” to the United States Military Standard MIL-STD-810G. The KT-100 provides a new and improved way to identify elemental composition for both heavy and light alloying elements in metals. Primary uses include scrap metal sorting, quality assurance in metal fabrication and positive material identification in petrochemical operations.

“The ability to accurately classify metals and alloys is of paramount importance for a number of applications to ensure profitability and product quality,” said Bree Allen, president of Rigaku Analytical Devices. “We developed KT-100 Katana to directly address the needs of the metal analyst, regardless of location or environment. We identified the weaknesses in existing technologies as well as the unmet needs of the end user and utilized the information to design and manufacture a device which performs efficiently and reliably, withstanding harsh environments.”

The winners of the contest were chosen by the editors and an independent judging panel.

“We are delighted to have won an R&D 100 Award, which confirms KT-100 Katana as one of the most advanced and robust handheld analyzers on the market, identifying a wide range of metals,” Allen said.
