Metal analysis

Analytical solutions for metal analysis and alloy manufacturing

We help you to meet demand, become more sustainable, and to make processes easier, cleaner and safer. With analysis that will help you find new possibilities . Our world-leading instruments, automated solutions, services and expertise will help you to set up your desired process control and quality control in the metal industry - whether it concerns primary metals or special products.


In the high-throughput, time-sensitive environments of the iron, steel, aluminum, copper, and titanium industries, process control and quality control are essential. As such, metals producers must be able to rapidly and accurately analyze the structure, particle size and shape, and density of their chemicals, metals, and alloys.

Metal sustainability

Our climate crisis is becoming more and more pressing – and metals will play a key role in tackling it. Given these challenges and opportunities, metals producers are working hard to meet environmental goals such as CO2-free steel. Our innovative metal characterization solutions support these efforts, enabling you to carefully monitor your materials and processes, drive efficiency, minimize material waste and energy use, and prevent toxic contamination.

Automated metal processing solutions

The drive toward automated metals production gets stronger each day – enabling researchers, manufacturers, and metal ore mine workers to operate more independently, efficiently, and safely. This is because automated processes allow much more frequent monitoring, including in remote environments. At Malvern Panalytical, we enable metals manufacturers to move toward automated operations with our automated lab testing solutions.

Monitor faster with strict parameters: Online solutions

As regulatory, competitive, and cost pressures increase, efficiency is more essential than ever for metals producers. By enabling quick, accurate control of critical parameters, real-time monitoring of raw materials and process streams can help save time, reduce waste, and ensure compliance with the tightest product specifications. 

Our on-line solutions – including analyzers for liquids and cross-belt analyzers for blast furnace input – facilitate this real-time monitoring.
