Failure Analysis Testing Services

As a provider of failure analysis services, Contech Research, Inc. provides a full range of capabilities, including root cause analysis, design consulting, technical support, and supporting documentation including comprehensive full data sets. Root cause analysis tests that we conduct include fretting evaluations that address evaluating for fretting corrosion, as well as electrical testing and surface analysis (such as SEM, SAM, FTIR, etc.). Our failure analysis process involves full and detailed research, including collection of the failed components and their history, visual inspection, surface analysis, evaluation of correct testing procedures, and testing processes with analysis. We then provide all documentation, with a conclusion and recommendation for a future course of action.

Our testing preparation is very detailed and involves, cleaning, designing and procuring test boards, and design of fixtures. We can test for several failure characteristics including corrosion, cracking, embrittlement, overload, wear, and more. Much of our failure analysis is carried out for the telecommunications industry, but we also serve the aerospace, electrical, commercial, computer, and electronics sectors. Contact Contech Research with your requirements to begin the testing process today.
