With daily changes in the prices of precious metals, small inaccuracies in testing can significantly impact your bottom line. Gold plating and counterfeit items are just some of the challenges that jewelers, gold traders and pawn shop owners face on a daily basis. Businesses require accurate results to remove variability and subjectivity from determining item value to ensure a profitable transaction.
Seth Gold of American Jewelry and Loan – 2013 NPA Pawnbroker of the Year and reality television personality – explains why gold testers are a must-have technology for pawnbrokers.
See how easy gold testing can be. One push of a button or a simple trigger pull of our x-ray metal analyzer delivers accurate purity analysis for on-the-spot sorting and valuation of gold and all precious metals.
Niton DXL and Niton XL2 gold testers are equipped with proprietary Thermo Scientific AuDIT gold-plating detection technology. Several independent, complementary methods in the AuDIT (Au/gold Detection & Identification Technology) software work in tandem to alert you to the probability that an item is plated, regardless of the gold concentration of the plated surface layer. AuDIT technology works for vermeil (gold-plated silver), as well as gold-plated copper, steel, tungsten and any other non-gold substrate.
