Test & Analysis Service
Test & Analysis Service
Professional tests from our laboratory
We offer a comprehensive testing and analysis service through our in-house laboratory.
This includes not only careful execution of the tests, but also detailed evaluation and documentation of the results. If you need a service that is not listed, please contact us – we will be happy to provide you with an individual offer.
Solder bath and metal analyses
You would like to subject your solder bath to a routine check or have the impression that your solder bath is contaminated or the soldering results have deteriorated? Our solder bath analysis provides you with reliable information about the quality of your solder bath: Our laboratory is equipped with modern spark spectrometers that analyze your solder bath samples and check them for composition or possible impurities.
We perform the solder bath analyses for our customers free of charge during the adaptation process. For non-customers who wish to use our service, this is subject to a charge. With our experienced team of application engineers, we are also happy to support you in defining specific intervention limits.
Further information on taking the solder bath sample, marking the sample and filling out the sample submission form can be found in the following PDF documents.
Wetting tests and solderability tests
Poor solderability is one of the most common causes of defects in a soldering process. Therefore, it makes sense to test the solderability of components or PCBs in advance.
We carry out solderability tests on SMD components, wired components, printed circuit boards and substrates for you according to the common standards of IEC, IPC and J-STD. For this purpose we use the wetting balances MUST 2 and MUST 3 from GEN3 Systems. This allows us to document the wetting processes by video and the degree of wetting by image.
Inspection of printed circuit boards and assemblies for ionic contamination
Electrically conductive contaminations on printed circuit boards and assemblies are a major problem – especially in the context of the increasing miniaturisation of all components. With the help of our Contaminometer CM11 from GEN3 Systems, we can reliably check your PCBs and assemblies for ionic contamination.
Surface insulation resistance measurement (SIR test)
The electrical safety and reliability of electronic assemblies plays a major role for electronics manufacturers. In particular, assessing the compatibility of different soldering agents and coatings used in a soldering process is becoming increasingly important. For this purpose, we offer measurements of the surface insulation resistance, which we perform for you with the help of our Auto-SIR measuring device from GEN3 Systems and our climate chamber in accordance with the current standards. With the device we are able to realise measurement setups with up to 128 channels.
