Title Providing the Industry with Answers to Challenging Questions through Failure Analysis Testing
Introduction Advanced MicroAnalytical offers solutions to complex material challenges involving everything from failure analysis and the identification of unknown materials to compositional analysis and engineering support.

Salem, NH,  November 16th , 2018

It is almost unheard of for any manufactured part or device to maintain true 100% reliability all of the time. Virtually everything is going to break, fail or fall short of its desired functionality at some point. Understanding the reason behind these failures can make the difference between learning and improving a product or potentially missing important clues that could indicate larger problems lurking below the surface.

The scientists and engineers at Advanced MicroAnalytical (AMA) provide critical support and expertise in this field. AMA offers a broad scientific staff operating throughout its materials science division to assist in all types of failure analysis investigations. No matter what your industry, whether it is construction, metals, electronics, composite materials, or complex devices; they work to serve as a trusted partner in providing engineering staff with the information necessary to determine the root cause of failures.

AMA performs traditional fractography inspections utilizing a variety of advanced microscopy techniques. Non-destructive testing can be used to image interior faults and fractures with high resolution X-ray CT, CSAM and similar techniques. Using both precision sectioning, and more advanced nanoscale techniques, the interior features of devices and parts can be revealed for further examination of both the morphology of any failures and the chemical and electrical properties of the material.

The experience, breadth of services and understanding of manufacturing and product development means Advanced MicroAnalytical serves as a trusted partner. AMA’s clients receive a detailed analysis, exhaustive data and a clear, concise summary conclusion about the data that the testing reveals. This puts the necessary information at the client’s fingertips and places the details in the proper context for problems to be solved.
