a time not all that long ago when the military and aerospace industries
controlled the manufacture of electronic components. That’s not the case now.
Advancements in technology and an ever more rapidly growing commercial
electronics industry have changed the dynamics. Today’s electronic component
manufacturers are driven to make devices that comply more with commercial demand
than with stricter aerospace guidelines. This has forced the aerospace industry
to purchase commercial electronic components and adapt them to its needs. Aerospace
companies want assurance that the commercial components they buy are suitable.
That’s where AcousTech comes in.
frequently engaged by aerospace companies to perform up-screening, which simply
refers to the rigorous testing of electronic devices before they’re purchased
in order to confirm that they qualify. To this end, we may employ any and all
of our inspection services – C-SAM®, X-Ray,
is especially useful here, since acoustic microscopy is a non-destructive
technique that’s able to find defects other tests can’t. Among such defects are
delamination, voids, and cracks. The images produced, which show the internal
features of a device quite clearly, can be used to make comparisons and note
changes as devices are flowed through environmental and life tests.
X-Ray inspection has proven adept is in helping eliminate the possibility of
counterfeit aerospace parts.
