Ultra Thin Film and Multilayered Film Measurement
Poly capillary X-ray focusing optics system enables micro beam size of less than 0.1 mm in diameter with high intensity that is equivalent to 50 times that of conventional collimator models in Au plating measurement. As a result, SFT 9500 series has a capability of quantitative measurement of single nanometer of Au with high accuracy. Besides, it can simultaneously measure each coating thickness of layers in multilayered applications, such as Au/Pd/Ni/Cu and Au/Ni/Ti/Si.
Hazardous Substance Analysis (for RoHS and ELV compliance)
SFT9 500 provides the best solution for quantitative analysis of hazardous substances. High resolution semiconductor detector (liquid nitrogen free) is able to detect microelements. Examples are Pb in Pb-free solder and electoless nickel that are typical components in electric, electronics, and automotive products.
High intensity micro beam combined with high count rate detector makes possible particle analysis. CCD camera can specify particles, and then subtraction spectrum display functions allow the qualitative analysis of the particles (Al to U).
Microsoft® EXCEL is equipped with statistical processing function that compiles measurement data as STDEV, Mean, Max, Min, CV, and Cpk. Microsoft® WORD provides detailed measurement reports with the sample image
Mapped image with micro beam is effective for the distribution analysis of plating thickness and specific elements.

“To Alternate Systems,
I wanted to take this opportunity to commend you for your contribution to our facility’s efforts – in our 2014 corporate review, our facility was given exemplary marks for our processes regarding the control and maintenance of monitoring and recording devices within the warehouse; our high performance in these areas is made possible by your company’s diligent work in keeping our equipment calibrated and in excellent condition. I can personally attest to the knowledge, patience, and work ethic your company brings to bear in tending to our needs and helping us ensure that we are able to surmount any issues that could affect our business. See below for an excerpt from our most recent audit listing the “Best in Class” designations we received in the areas of measuring equipment control and maintenance:
IMTE – Control of Monitoring and Measuring Devices: Very thorough control of the temperature and scale equipment tracking, calibration and maintenance. Very critical in a GXP site.
Temperature Control and Monitoring: Very robust / compliant system in place for Temperature Mapping, Control, Maintenance and oversight.
Local QSHE Manager”
“To whom it may concern,
This is to conﬁrm Cimcon ﬁnishing has had business relationship with Alternate systems for over ten years. The quality of service provided by Mr. Peter Wright has been unsurpassed among our other suppliers and service providers. Technical knowledge, Prompt response, sense of partnership with its customers and working with their team on regular base to advance their knowledge of the products and services available is among few of many offered by Alternate systems.
As such I always highly recommend Mr. Wright to other friends and colleagues in our industry. Please feel free to contact me if you need to discuss in further detail.
Thanks for following up. I would like to let you know that you knocked it out of the park. Everything was as you said it would be and you delivered well within my requirements for time. We will be forwarding all of our feritscope units to your facility for recertiﬁcation from here on. Thanks for your help.
CET, Electronics Service Center Manager
