More than 200 people visited the Fraunhofer IWM Industry Workshop and Technology Day in Halle/ Saale (Germany) last week. This event was sponsored by multiple companies including xyztec. The workshop was titled “Failure Analysis and Material Characterization in Micro-Electronics, Microsystem Technologies and Nano-Technology Industry”.
Since 2003 the Fraunhofer IWM and xyztec has successfully worked together on multiple projects and built a strong relationship. This made Dirk Schade, global sales director for xyztec, a logical choice as one of the speakers during the event. He showed multiple test opportunities that can be performed on a xyztec Sigma bond tester in a work shop titled “Mechanical Testing for Quality Surveillance of Power Electronics Components”. Especially the patented self-alignment tool and impact measurement unit drew a lot of attention.
