Resources International (MRi),
an active solder and braze joining technology company, has announced
a partnership with Matec Micro Electronics of Yardley, PA.
Through the acquisition of a state-of-the-art Scanning
Acoustic Microscope (SAM), one of the largest
in the world, MRi adds high resolution, ultrasonic imaging services
to complement its active solder and active brazing products and
does SAM work
The SAM uses a variety of ultrasonic transducers, with different
frequencies (1 to 260MHz) and focal lengths, to find the optimal
signal to penetrate the substrate and inspect your solder or
can SAM do
The SAM is capable of detecting flaws as small as 5µm
and resolving gaps as thin as 0.1µm. The acoustic microscope's
immersion tank is one of the largest in the world, allowing
for high-resolution inspection of parts over 22" x 40"
in surface joining area. The 24" depth of the tank allows
for easy inspection of large and awkwardly-shaped parts.
Quality control through non-destructive inspection is imperative
for value-added parts. X-ray inspection does not resolve the
size and depth detail of SAM and LP/MP methods only reveal surface
defects. Acoustic microscopy can penetrate thick layers of solid
material to inform you of your braze/solder joints' quality,
before a premature failure informs your customer for you.
