From CMI to Bowman

Bowman was founded by the technical team that established CMI International and successfully grew the company to become a respected leader in the XRF plating measurement industry. The Bowman team offers customers the advantage of more than five decades of combined experience in the coating thickness measurement and elemental analysis industry.

We are committed to providing innovative analytical solutions for OEMs, contract platers and retailers worldwide. All built in the USA, and all backed by the best-in-class service and support team.

Our K ALPHA Connection

In May of 2016, K ALPHA acquired Bowman, its long-time partner for X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) Instrumentation for coating thickness measurement, elemental analysis, and solution analysis. Business operations between the two companies were merged, and there is today one unified management bench leading this dynamic entity under the Bowman corporate name.
