CubiX³ delivers exceptional analysis speed, reliability and reproducibility. Introducing new features such as high-intensity data collection and extra flexibility in sample handling for automated environments, CubiX³ can be set up for fully automated, push-button operation. The initial investment in this platform is rapidly earned back because of the ease of operation, the independency of operators and safety for users when compared to traditional methods like wet-chemical process control or microscopy. Rapid measurement equates to real cost savings and rugged construction ensures maximum uptime of the system.

High-speed sample throughput featuring quick turnaround times

Ultrafast sample loading in combination with a high-speed 1D detector such as X’Celerator allow a higher sample throughput that enables the user to control their processes more effectively. Measurement times of 5 minutes can be easily achieved. 

TWIN - Intelligent automation 

A stand-alone CubiX³ can be combined with all common automation equipment. The TWIN solutions combine a XRF and a XRD system. It uses the single interface of the SuperVisor software to announce all samples just once, to route the sample to one or both systems, and to control the actual measurements. The results can be merged before transmission for a joint analysis report. 

Advantages 

  • One user interface for both XRD and XRF
  • Robot or conveyor connections possible
  • Two complete systems for simultaneous analyses
  • One sample for both methods, one result
  • Support of 40 mm and 51 mm sample holder rings

Push-button measurements for easy operation and virtually no learning curve

The Industry and Quantify software packages handle measurements as well as complex calculations for industry-specific parameters. With a push of a button the operator can measure and analyze even unknown samples.  

The Walk-up operator interface enables a fully automated XRD measurement and analysis that allows at any time access for adding new samples, operates also in a regulated environment, and requires no knowledge of XRD to achieve results. 

High-speed XRD systems like CubiX³ allow the use of standardless methods such as Rietveld quantification. RoboRiet enables the operator to perform such Rietveld quantifications completely automatic and transfers the results to a customer defined destination (such as LIMS, paper or table).

Robust design for industrial environments 

The robust design of the CubiX³ allows the use of the X-ray diffractometer even in remote and dusty locations. The goniometer, optics and detectors are dust-protected inside the enclosure to prevent unexpected downtimes.

Detectors

X'Celerator

The world’s first 1D silicon strip detector for laboratory X-rays

As the world’s first silicon-based position-sensitive 1D detector for XRD, the X’Celerator is the result of the pioneering development from Malvern Panalytical. With the R&D 100 Award-winning X’Celerator detector you can perform XRD measurements up to 100 times faster than with a traditional point detector, without compromising data quality. With no need for cooling water, liquid nitrogen flow, counting gas or time-consuming calibrations, it is a cost-effective solution.

The X’Celerator is designed exclusively for Malvern Panalytical’s diffractometers for applications in research and industry.
