Research & Development - The Metal Power Advantage
Innovation and invention have therefore always been a way of life and a driving force for us. At the core of all our efforts is our unique, one-of-a-kind and fully in-house R&D and Applications Centre. Spread across various functions – Optics, Embedded Systems, Applications, Software development etc. – our team is staffed by scientists, engineers and technologists working at the cutting edge of technology, carrying some of the richest and deepest reservoirs of expertise available in the field of analytical instruments for metal industries.
We are the first and only company to offer:
OES analyses are only as stable as the plasma and this plasma is generated by the current in the analytical gap. Given the nature of the gap, a voltage-controlled source leads to ripples and instability and therefore reduced precision. Current-controlled sources ensure uniform current at all points in time and therefore far better stability and precision of analyses. Metal Power is the first OES manufacturer in the world to ensure that every model in the portfolio, even at entry-level is equipped with the highest-quality constant-current sources, ensuring the highest level of precision in every class of instrument.
Current-controlled sources even at entry-level
Nitrogen is a key element for a large number of ferrous products. From low alloy steels and carbon steels to stainless steels, Nitrogen analysis is a key requirement for most OES users. Historically though, OES makers have restricted this feature only to high-end models and making it optional even there, ensuring N analysis remains out of reach for the large majority of buyers. Keeping in mind our customers’ needs, we have ensured that each and every model comes factory-calibrated for Nitrogen or at least offers the potential for a later on-site upgrade, ensuring that user needs are prioritized and investments are protected.
N analysis on every model in the portfolio
Time-resolved spectroscopy (TRS) provides a range of benefits – from lower detection limits to much-improved precision. However, this had long been considered exclusive to PMT OES. Using the latest-generation detectors and the most advanced analytical and software techniques, we have optimized TRS on our fully-CCD OES – and today offer TRS-equipped models for ensuring high precision and also features enabled by TRS such as soluble-insoluble analysis etc.
Time-resolved spectroscopy on fully CMOS-based OES
O, N, and H are elements that are extremely difficult to analyse on OES; that said, the value that such analyses add makes some of all of these elements essential for the highest-end manufacturers – specially in Steel, Copper and Titanium applications. With our custom-developed and optimized gratings, cutting-edge detectors and optimized applications, our OES offer O and N analyses down to very low levels on both the Metavision-1008i3 as well as the Metavision-10008X.
Low O (1 ppm), N (1 ppm) C,S and P (1 ppm each)
Each customer is unique – and often, customers find that their analytical requirements are not being met by standard off-the-shelf offerings. At Metal Power, through our in-house Applications Lab and R&D team, we ensure that even these requirements are catered to, be it through specific tailored software solutions or tailored Analytical Programs and methods that meet these unique client requirements. From system connectivity to master alloy programs and beyond, we go to great extents to ensure a tailored solution for those with unique requirements
Our R&D has developed several new technologies and methodologies that have been patented and are uniquely offered only by Metal Power, globally. Some of these include:
We have developed a patented application method to analyse fine wires, fully quantitatively down to 0.1 mm thickness. This adds a new dimension to the analytical capabilities of OES – and obviates the need for different instruments / complex techniques to conduct such analyses
Fully quantitative fine wires analysis down to 0.1 mm diameter
Our patented D-Scan and M-Scan techniques enable us to increase the effective detector – and therefore pixel – count multi-fold. This enhances system resolution a integer multiples while not increasing component count or system complexity, resulting in greater economy as well as far higher stability of the system.
Designed to increase detector resolution in integer multiples
Our ‘Hydra’ fibre optics design supports our optical design patents. Through such solutions, we ensure higher resolution, stability and economy, delivering instruments that are best-in-class across all these parameters
Fibre optics design to enable scanning solutions
Our RPT-based H-Scan delivers industry-leading accuracy in the measurement of Hydrogen content in molten Aluminium. With a test time of just 3 minutes, this instrument provides complete traceability, and high accuracy, while also being extremely economical.

Thin foils down to 50 microns are analysed using routine methods on our OES. For our higher-end models, we have a patented source and method that enables analysis down to even 20 micron thickness

Our Core Values
Each of us is unique. Yet, fundamentally it is vital that all our actions and behaviours are grounded in a set of shared values.
Our Core Values serve as a guide to all aspects of our work and our behaviour, and to also define how we interact with our wider ecosystem. These values guide all our actions from the areas in which we work.
At Metal Power, we value equity, inclusion and diversity; we pride ourselves on offering equal opportunities and respect for all, irrespective of ethnicity, race, gender, age and orientation. Respect and humility are at the core of everything we do and stand for, and we shall always ensure the highest levels of consideration for our internal and external stakeholders. Differences make us human; mutual respect makes us a team
Diversity and Cultural Understanding
We are honest and transparent in all our dealings. Regardless of circumstance and environment, whether with internal or external stakeholders, our reputation and good name depends on our always being authentic and reliable. We shall therefore always act with integrity, be authentic at all times and take complete accountability for our actions, words and decisions. trust is the hardest thing to earn – and the easiest to lose
Integrity & Authenticity
Earning the trust of our customers is the one true metric to judge ourselves by, as people and as an organisation. We pride ourselves on always going beyond merely the “written word” to deliver value, quality, satisfaction and timely delivery of our products and services to all our customers – both within and outside the organization. the only competition worth considering is the gap to perfection
Innovation is a part of our DNA. True advancement and innovation can only stem from continuous learning and a focus on what can be, as opposed to what already is. We therefore believe in unconstrained ideation in research, and unrelenting endeavour to develop these ideas into reality. the only rules we are constrained by are those set by science and our imagination
We are passionate about making a positive contribution to our ecosystems. Ensuring resource efficiency in everything we do, keeping a minimal carbon and energy footprint, giving back multifold to our society and our communities, and ensuring that all our people imbibe and implement sustainable practices is integral to our long-term success. Sustainability every day – to ensure we have tomorrows to look forward to
“If a thing is worth doing at all, it is worth doing well.” In any field of work, it is the weakest link that defines the strength of the combined output. It is therefore fundamental for us to ensure excellence in each and every activity we undertake, whether within or outside our organization. There is no activity that is so small or insignificant as to merit the slightest compromise on. Excellence is not an act, but a habit
