Designed for on-the-spot identification of the most difficult alloy grades, the Rigaku KT-100S laser induced breakdown (LIBS) spectrometer represents the latest in handheld metal analysis.

KT-100S employs laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) to enable durable and accurate alloy identification for use in:

  • Scrap metal sorting.
  • Quality assurance in metal fabrication.
  • Positive material identification (PMI) in petrochemical operations.

Utilizing a 1064 nm Class 3B laser excitation, Katana offers superior light element identification in metal and alloy applications to ensure profitability and product quality. Elements such as lithium (Li), beryllium (Be), magnesium (Mg), and aluminum (Al) can now be accurately identified in 1-2 seconds.

Offering a rapid matrix selection, chemical composition and grade identification is simple and easy to read with QuickID software. Users have the ability to quickly add new alloys to a customized on-board library. Katana is password-protected with an automatic “sleep mode” for improved safety and battery life. Its on-board camera captures images of the metal pieces being analyzed.

Katana’s pistol-shape is optimal for one-handed operation and weighs 1.5 kg (3.25 lbs). It is ruggedized for maximum durability with an IP-54 certified rating. With a 3.5” high resolution tiltable screen, users have much more visibility when in confined spaces or outdoors.   


  • Smallest & lightest handheld LIBS - Sort all of your common alloys with ease.
  • QuickID™ software - Identify more in less time.
  • 6-Hour battery life - Avoid unscheduled downtime.
  • Durable, tested design - Built for your environment.
  • GPS tracking - Protect your investment.
