Innovative XRD technology into a compact and robust design. 

Several Options and Accessories available. 

Europe 600

Benchtop X-Ray Diffractometer

Europe 600 is a benchtop general purpose diffractometer for XRD qualitative and quantitative analysis of polycrystalline materials. It is available in two different version, with Theta/2Theta goniometer and with the new Theta/Theta goniometer manufactured by GNR. 

Its compact size and robust design enables installation and operations in a small space and low cost of ownership and maintenance. 

Thanks to the wide offer of configurations and accessories, such as high speed detector, scintillation counter, secondary monochromator, spinner and multiple sample holder, Europe 600 is the perfect instrument for fast-paced routine industrial quality assurance analysis and for teaching XRD at academic level. 

Europe operating at 600 watts enables faster analysis and oustanding overall results.
