Since ARUN Technology launched the world’s first portable metals analyser based on CCD technology in the 1980s, the company has led the field in the fast growing market for portable and desktop metals analysis spectrometers.
In the 1990s the MetalScan 1625 and MetalScan 1650 portable metals analysers established themselves as the industry standard for ‘arc in air’ grade identification or Positive Material Identification (PMI).
The MetalScan 2000 desktop unit with a high-precision spark source, was introduced in the early 1990s and rapidly gained acceptance in foundries, die-casters, and metal finishers. This was followed by the MetalScan M2500 desktop unit in 1999.
Since 2006 under the control of MetalScan Limited and a management buyout team, the new PolySpek Junior desktop models as well as the ASSort and ASCert series of portables and mobiles have been introduced.
ARUN Technology is dedicated to the design, development and manufacture of optical emission spectrometers for metals analysis. Sustained and extensive investment in research and development continues to ensure that the ARUN Technology products remain at the forefront of metals analysis. Close links with industry, development centres and trade groups are used to keep applications of the technology relevant and up to date.
