Sectioning

Sectioning Technical Information Specimen preparation for material examination involves an intricate series of operations, each depending upon the preceding. The importance of the first cut cannot be overstated, as all subsequent steps can be seriously affected if done improperly. Cutting must leave the material properties undisturbed and avoid heat deformation at the cut surface. It must also provide a clean cut, without burring, and with a minimal amount of frictional heating. The most commonly used sectioning device in the metallographic laboratory is the abrasive cut-off machine. All abrasive-wheel sectioning should be performed wet. An ample flow of coolant, with an additive for corrosion protection and lubrication, should be directed into the cut. Wet cutting will produce a smoother surface finish and, most importantly, will guard against excessive surface damage caused by overheating.

Abrasive Cutting Troubleshooting Guide Abrasive Cutting Troubleshooting Guide Problem

Possible Cause

Suggested Remedy

Burning (bluish

Overheated specimen with softer bonding (faster breakdown)

Increase coolant flow rate; reduce cutting pressure; select a wheel

Wheel bonding breaks down too rapidly Uneven coolant distribution; loose specimen fixturing; abrupt contact with specimen Wheel was previously cracked at start up Slow wheel bond breakdown

Select a wheel with harder bonding; reduce cutting pressure Adjust coolant flow to be even on both sides of the wheel; clamp the specimen more securely; start cut contact carefully Handle carefully. Contact Buehler.

discoloration) Rapid wheel wear Frequent wheel breakage Frequent wheel breakage Resistance to cutting

Select a wheel with softer bonding; use a “pulse” cutting mode; use cutter with oscillating motion or with minimal area of contact cutting* ability Stalled wheels Inadequate cutter capacity; pinched Use cutter with greater horsepower; tighten the clamp on one blade due to movement of specimen side less than on the other side; reduce pressure or feed rate; use a with cutter oscillating motion or with MACC ability *Minimal Area of Contact Cutting as on the Delta Orbital Abrasive Cutter

Tips, Tricks & Techniques: For the best performance from your cutter and wheels: ■ Maintain the coolant & recirculation tank ■ Make sure flanges are properly installed ■ Keep the hood open to avoid trapping humidity

Figure 1. As water in the coolant tank evaporates, the remaining water becomes harder, reducing the effectiveness of the coolant. This graph shows that the hardness of the water will double in only ten days. This can be eliminated by using distilled or other chemically pure water. Figure 2. In this illustration, the elements of the coolant (represented by A-L) combine with the minerals in hard water (represented by V-Z), resulting in reduced coolant efficiency and a sticky residue. When mixed with chemically pure water, the coolant formula remains intact and performs as designed.

Mounting Technical Information The primary purpose of mounting metallographic specimens is for convenience in handling specimens of difficult shapes or sizes during the subsequent steps of metallographic preparation and examination. A secondary purpose is to protect and preserve extreme edges or surface defects during metallographic preparation. The method of mounting should in no way be injurious to the microstructure of the specimen. Pressure and heat are the most likely sources of injurious effects. The most common mounting method uses pressure and heat to encapsulate the specimen with a thermosetting or thermoplastic mounting material. Common thermosetting resins include phenolic (PhenoCure® resin), Diallyl Phthalate and epoxy (EpoMet® resin) while methyl methacrylate (TransOptic® resin) is the most commonly used thermoplastic mounting resin. Castable mounting materials may require neither pressure nor external heat and are recommended for mounting specimens that are sensitive to heat and/or pressure. Acrylic resins, such as VariDur® and SamplKwick® resins, are the most widely used castable resins due to their low cost and short curing time. However, shrinkage can be a problem with acrylics.

Grinding/Polishing Technical Information Grinding is defined as abrasive material removal from the specimen surface using randomly oriented or fixed abrasives on a substrate such as paper or cloth. Grinding starts with the finest grit size that will establish an initially flat surface and remove the effects of sectioning within a few minutes. The abrasive used for each succeeding grinding operation should be one or two grit sizes smaller than that used in the preceding step. All grinding steps should be performed wet provided that water has no adverse effects on any constituents of the microstructure. Wet grinding minimizes specimen heating, and prevents the abrasive from becoming loaded with material removed from the specimen being prepared. Each grinding step, while producing damage itself, must remove the damage from the previous step. The depth of damage decreases with the abrasive size but so does the material removal rate. Polishing is the final step, or steps, in producing a deformation-free surface that is flat, scratch free, and mirror-like in appearance. Such a surface is necessary to observe the true microstructure for subsequent metallographic interpretation, both qualitative and quantitative.

Printed Wiring Board & Electronic Technical Information & Equipment Laboratories performing failure analysis on microelectronic devices and materials can select hand or by semi-automated equipment. For the budget conscious, our hand-held TriPoint Polisher or Target Holders offer good accuracy to target features of interest in most electronic devices. If greater precision and automation is required, the MPC 2000 for cross sectioning and the MPC 3000 for thinning are logical choices that offer affordability, compaired to fully automated systems. For surface mounted features, the addition of the 200x microscope mounted on the MPC 2000 assists in easy alignment of a feature of interest. This eliminates the need to verify your progress on an external microscope which inherently degrades the accuracy and can be very time consuming. For the printed wiring board manufacturer, the NelsonZimmer® systems offer a high degree of accuracy and automation in cross sectioning copper plated through holes. State-of-the-art boards continually demand smaller holes down to 0.004“ (100µm) in diameter. The NelsonZimmer® 3000 when combined with the PWB Met™ Drill, and if needed the PWB Met™ Router for multilayer board coupon extraction, are capable of handling the most demanding board shops.

Optical Light Microscopes Stereomicroscopes are used for three dimensional imaging where the perception of depth and contrast is critical to the interpretation of specimen structure. The wide field of view and variable magnification of stereomicroscopes lend them for the study of large specimens particularly industrial assembly and parts inspection applications. They can be used to examine specimens under both reflected (episcopic) and transmitted (diascopic) light. Often transmitted and reflected light sources are combined to take advantage of particular specimen features to best reveal its characteristics. The main techniques for the stereoscopic illumination of specimens are oblique, darkfield, and fluorescence illumination. Industrial Microscopes utilize reflected light to illuminate a specimen on a movable stage perpendicular to the optical axis. Industrial scopes come in upright and inverted configurations and are commonly used in conjunction with image analysis systems. As opposed to the standard configuration of an upright microscope in which the ocular and objective are located above the specimen stage, the lenses of an inverted microscope are located below a transparent viewing stage, with the light source illuminating the subject from above. The specimen is located face down above the objective with the line of sight directed upward through the objective to the object. Locating the lenses below the stage allows users to examine larger or odd shaped samples. Brightfield, darkfield, polarized light, and Differential interference Contrast (DIC) are the most common viewing techniques used with industrial microscopes. Industrial applications for materials science and engineering laboratories include the three-dimensional analysis of metals and semiconductor materials, checks for surface defects, grain size and incursions in QA/QC, and the analysis of surface microstructures in a variety of sample types in material science and metallography.

Digital Imaging Technical Information & Equipment When adding imaging capabilities to the laboratory, it is important to consider your goals. Oftentimes, images are just another step in the documentation process. For example, in a failure investigation it is useful to capture the image of a complete component before the sectioning process. In quality control, an image of the microstructure might be attached to a report as an indication of a pass/fail condition. Additional functionality of an imaging system might include a scale marker overlay and point-to-point or other operator interactive measurements. Fully automated image analysis includes detection of the features of interest based on grey level or color differences as well as morphological characteristics such as size and shape. Automated imaging applications are based on a fundamental series of steps shown in the table below. Depending on your goals, some or all of these steps may be utilized. Imaging Steps Acquisition

Hardness Tester Technical Information & Microindentation Hardness Systems Hardness testing is performed to measure a materials’ resistance to penetration as a predictor of strength, machinability, ductility and wear resistance. An indenter of a specific size and shape is impressed, with a known force, into the surface of a material. Hardness values are determined by measuring the physical dimensions of the indentation relative to the applied force. Hardness tests are typically classified by the extent of the test force. “Macro” tests refer to test where a force greater than 1KG was applied while “Micro” tests refer to tests where the load force is less than 1KG. Tests below 0.1g are referred to as ultralight or nanoindentation tests. “Macro” testers employ the Vickers, Rockwell, or Brinell methods. “Micro” testers employ either the Knoop or Vickers methods. Due to the low loads involved in “Micro” tests, many factors (see table below) can affect the quality of the test results. Factors Affecting Precision and Bias in Microindentation Hardness Testing Instrument Factors Measurement Factors Accuracy of the applied load Calibration of the measurement system

Material Factors Heterogenity of the specimen

Inertia effects, speed of loading

Numerical aperture of the objective

Strength of crystallographic texture, if present

Lateral movement of the indenter or specimen

Magnification

Quality of specimen preparation

Indentation time

Inadequate image quality

Low reflectivity or transparency

Indenter shape deviations

Uniformity of illumination

Creep during indentation

Damage to the indenter

Distortion in optics

Fracture during indentation

Inadequate spacing between indents or form edges

Operator’s visual acuity

Oil, grease or dirt on indenter indenter or specimen

Angle of indentation

Focusing of the image

Automation is available on different levels for the microindentation hardness testing (MHT) process. The most common uses of automation are in the automated placement of indentations and the use of image analysis for indent measurement. The placement of indentations can be automated using a motorized stage and MHT software. Automating the hardness testing process can significantly improve operator efficiency and result consistency.

OmniMet® MHT Fully Automated Microindentation Hardness Systems The OmniMet®MHT Manual, Semi- and Fully Automatic Microindentation Hardness Testing Systems are supplied in three configurations; a complete system including workstation and accessory hardness tester, a retrofit system to be combined with an existing tester, or as a software only solution to be added to your own workstation. The OmniMet MHT increases productivity and improves repeatability through the automation of the hardness testing process. Our new tracing function allows the operator to outline the exterior of a specimen, rapidly set multiple indent paths, document the placement of hardness profiles, and automatically generate reports with an embedded profile map, creating a visual record of the entire measurement. All models include OmniMet MHT Software (model specific) Version 7.2 or later, OmniMet MHT operator’s manual, a NIST traceable Stage Micrometer in imperial or metric units, OmniMet mouse pad, and Buehler SUM-MET The Science Behind Materials Preparation – A Guide to Materials Preparation and Analysis CD. Complete systems also include an OmniMet workstation configured with Microsoft Windows XP operating system and Microsoft Office Professional 2007 software. Systems are for 115-220V, 50/60Hz, single phase operation. Monitors, cameras, c-mounts, printers and various other workstation accessories are sold separately. The OmniMet MHT can be supplemented with one of the OmniMet Modular Digital Imaging software solutions offering simple image measurements to full featured image analysis.

Buehler Education Schedule CALCE (Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering - University of Maryland) / Buehler Failure Analysis of Electronic Components CALCE / BUEHLER FAILURE ANALYSIS OF ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS Failure analysis is an important tool in the effort to ensure reliability of electronic products and systems throughout their product lifecycle. Significant improvements in the reliability of electronics can be achieved by retrieving products and examining them to determine the root cause of any failures and the extent of degradation which has occurred over time. Root cause failure analysis employs a sequence of non-destructive and destructive analytical techniques to characterize the modes by which failure is manifested, the sites where failure is localized, the fundamental mechanical, electrical, chemical and electrochemical mechanisms by which failure has occurred, and the factors which precipitated the activation of those mechanisms. Unfortunately, failure analysis is often performed incorrectly or incompletely, leading to a poor understanding of failure mechanisms and causes, and loss of money, customers, and possibly lives due to recurrence of failures.The first half of the short course will present a methodology for identifying potential failure mechanisms in electronic components based on the failure history. Systematic approaches to root cause analysis will be provided. Failure analysis techniques geared towards various failure mechanisms will be discussed, with an emphasis on cross-sectioning techniques and analysis.

Cross-sectional analysis is a valuable tool for failure analysis of electronic devices along with quality evaluation, research and process monitoring. Successful use of this technique is often complicated by the highly dissimilar properties of the component materials under investigation and their susceptibility to damage. Emphasis will be placed on how to deal with these differences through an understanding of the component materials to be prepared and the basic principles of abrasive grinding and polishing.Techniques for low-damage sectioning and the procedures required to prevent preparation induced damage are discussed. The second half of this short course provides guidance on how to choose preparation sequences depending on the materials, the configuration of the specimens and the ultimate purpose of the investigation.The short course stresses the need to understand the basic principles rather than simply following '“recipes".The goal of specimen preparation is to produce a damage-free surface that can be imaged and analyzed through the use of microscopy. Methods for capturing images and quantifying features through the use of image analysis will be discussed and demonstrated.This course is recommended for persons who wish to conduct failure analysis on electronic products such as PWBs, wafers, solid state devices and components.

This course will be taught jointly by Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) and Buehler. April 20-23, 2010 (CALCE - University of Maryland) September 14-17, 2010 (CALCE - University of Maryland)

COST: 4-day course: $2500 Consortium Members & Government Institutions: $2000 Each attendee is invited to submit one sample to CALCE at least three weeks before the start date. Several of the submitted samples will be prepared and analyzed in advance, for use during the demonstrations. Other samples will be used for hands-on training to illustrate specimen preparation procedures and analysis techniques. However, no guarantee can be offered that any specific sample will be used. All unused samples will be returned. For course registration information please contact Bhanu Sood by phone at 301-405-3498 or by email at bpsood@calce.umd.edu.
