Goniometer Heads

Automated Goniometer Head

Make Your Sample Get to the Point!
The automated goniometer head (AGH) allows fast alignment of your sample to the center of the goniometer.

Our innovative X-ray based automated software centering gets you the best diffracting part of the sample into the beam.
