National Wire Launches Quality Verification System
Checking wire for compliance.
Los Angeles, CA — National Wire and Cable has implemented state-of-the-art X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) technology to ensure its products comply with all applicable international lead-free and "Green" manufacturing standards.

The company employs a Nitron XL3 XRF analyzer for systematic verification throughout its manufacturing process including receipt of material, stockroom and finished product. A streamlined record retention process supports the compliance assurance system and dramatically speeds the time to respond to compliance questions. Customers are furnished with a Certificate of Compliance for all applicable products and a detailed chemical signature analysis report is available on request.

National Wire's XRF program can provide detailed quality and materials validation for the complex metal alloys and plastic coatings used in the manufacture of wire and cable. Coating materials in particular are often formulated to very exacting specifications. The raw materials can come from any number of foreign and domestic sources. The company uses XRF technology to analyze a material's precise composition, and verify RoHS and Reach compliance as part of its extensive quality control program. Environmental concerns are increasingly acknowledged and enforced by government regulations around the world. This is increasing the demand on manufacturers to provide compliance documentation for RoHS and other Green requirements.
