The first of its kind on the market, the new Apex™ Quick Release XRF die makes routine pellet preparation simpler and faster than ever before. It can dramatically cut down on operator involvement and speed up the pellet making process by mechanically automating certain steps.
In combination with the powered and programmable Autotouch™ press, high volume, high throughput sample production for intensive industries such as mining and production is now possible.
The unique, patented sleeve design completely eliminates the effort-intensive pellet extraction step. Unlike traditional dies, which require the die set to be removed from the press, partly disassembled, and then returned to the press, the Apex™ Quickrelease® die requires only application of a light secondary load to eject the pellet from the die.
The entire cycle can take as little as 2-3 minutes from loading the sample to retrieving the finished pellet. Once the pellet is removed, the release mechanism is reset with the press of a button, and the die is ready immediately for the next sample.
