Upcoming Trade Shows and Events for the Metals and Mined Materials Industry

Are you interested in learning more about our offerings for elemental analysis of inorganic samples or sample preparation equipment for metallography? Then we highly recommend visiting us at one of our upcoming trade shows! We will be attending a great line-up of shows this Spring/Summer. Below is a list of when and where we’ll be with a brief description of what each show is all about. We hope to see you there!

International Glow Discharge Spectroscopy Symposium (IGDSS)

21-24 April | Liverpool, UK

IGDSS2024 features a rich technical program that spans both research and applied aspects of Glow Discharge Spectroscopy. There will be oral and poster presentations from both international experts and young researchers. This symposium will concentrate on the analysis of solids by optical emission or mass spectrometry with Glow Discharge sources. Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:

  • Fundamentals (GD Processes)
  • Instrumentation
  • Analytical Methodology
  • Depth Profiling, Thin Films
  • Other Applications and Related Fields


Why will LECO be there?

Among our line-up of reliable elemental analyzers is the Glow Discharge Spectrometer. We believe in the power of analytical data and want to provide our customers with the best equipment possible to achieve the most accurate results. We’ll be at the symposium to share our insights on the topic of Glow Discharge Spectroscopy, as well as highlight how our GDS is incomparable to the rest.

Our Vendor Talk: “Optimization of Quantitative Depth Measurements with True Plasma Power Pulsed RF Glow Discharge Optical Emission Spectrometry” by Aaron Walczewski, Inorganic Product Manager, LECO Corporation
