Materials Analysis Workshop at MCS Ltd – Roslin

November 12, 2014
Materials Analysis Workshop - 13 November 2014

Tomorrow we will be running a unique workshop, hosted by MCS Ltd and sponsored by Nordson DAGE.  Your opportunity to learn about the theory and issues associated with electronics joining materials in the form of wire bonds, solder joints, conductive adhesives etc.

The workshop will be given by MCS Ltd at their facility on the outskirts of Edinburgh and will offer a small group of professionals the opportunity to learn and develop their knowledge of interface materials and the issues that affect their performance and reliability in-service, including:

  • The theory of materials
  • Joint/bond interfaces
  • Typical failure modes
  • Root-cause analysis

Featuring focussed sessions using real life examples, experts at MCS Ltd will guide a small group of participants (maximum 10 people) through the above topics, to solve problems in this field. The workshop will feature hand-on analysis of samples with MCS staff as well as a problem clinic to discuss any issues affecting your products.

 provide their customers with materials and failure analysis to help solve their manufacturing and reliability issues. Equipped with world class sample preparation and analytical tools MCS’ highly qualified scientists work closely with customers to understand the nature of issue, recommend appropriate analysis and carry-out investigations in a timely manner in order to find effective solutions.

MCS have developed expert knowledge of materials and joint/bond interfaces with over 15 years of experience working mainly in the electronics industry. They have also developed new processes to enable deformation-free sample preparation in order to diagnose the root-cause of failures and find effective solutions.

The event is fully booked for this year. We will consider running the event again in 2015 if there is sufficient interest, please therefore contact the IMAPS-UK Secretariat if you are interested in attending a future Materials Analysis workshop.
