Sorting Light Metals Tons Faster with LIBS
Steve Buckley,Vice President and General Manager of the Applied Systems, Ocean Insight
This presentation covers emerging Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) technology - how it works, handheld and in-line systems, and implementations for sorting. We discuss cases with proven recovery of particular alloys, separation of wrought from cast aluminum, and other benefits of this exciting technology in the field.
