The process of choosing the right Failure Analysis Lab for your microelectronics, medical devices or other product manufacturing needs can be a difficult process. At Sage Analytical Lab, we are continuously evolving our processes and techniques to better serve the product manufacturing community with the best-in-class services.
We have found the microelectronics, semiconductor, medical device, telecommunication and related industries experience daily pressures in simplified processes to assist in reduced costs and scaled production. To better prepare product manufacturers with efficient and best standards the proper quality assurance practices and techniques need to be put in place. As a result, Sage Analytical Lab has built a strong reputation for product manufacturers in need of high standards of quality.
A Best-In-Class Failure Analysis Laboratory
With over 100 years of collective practical engineering expertise and best practices, we can provide advanced procedures and methods to proficiently analyze and expose various failure sites for all industries. A failure analysis investigation performed at Sage Analytical Lab to assist in explaining the reason a Metal or related product fails to perform as expected or in some cases deteriorates to certain levels where it is no longer safe or compliant for use.
The experienced teams of engineers at Sage Analytical Lab offer Failure Analysis Processes that are systematic and assist in helping you understand the specific reasons behind material failure or product failures. In addition, we provide insight into preventing a similar failure in the future with support when an expert witness is needed. Sage Analytical Lab begins each investigation with a background review of the material or part that failed. Whenever possible, our clients provide us with all the pertinent information, including: Composition and fabrication of the failed item, Circumstances leading to the failure and details of the failure event by inquiring here.
Based on the type of product and its history, Sage’s team will perform a root cause failure analysis using the necessary testing and inspections to identify the cause of failure. Metal failure analysis, or a metallurgical failure analysis, may include any of the wide-range of mechanical testing, metallurgical evaluation, chemical analysis, nondestructive testing or dimensional inspection services performed at our one-stop failure analysis laboratory.
Testing and inspection are performed using top-of-the-line equipment throughout the Lab, including our Scanning Electron Microscope with EDS capabilities. We can get the structural and behavioral results necessary for a thorough investigation and to uncover the probable root cause of the failure, including:
- Material composition
- Mechanical properties
- The existence of flaws or inconsistencies
When the failure analysis is completed, customers receive a comprehensive Failure Analysis Report with all findings from the investigation. This detailed report may include recommended actions to be taken with similar parts or materials to prevent a recurrence in the future.
Sage Analytical Lab’s diverse and extensive experience spans over 100 years of advanced failure analysis techniques. Our team of technical engineers is available to speak with you concerning your various analytical needs and provide optimum, knowledge-based solutions to assist in solving your problems.
