Does your Lead-free process meet industry standards? This program makes your transition to Lead-Free smooth by giving you a complete solution. The CE Analytics/ Practical Components� program is unique in that it not only offers you the materials and analysis but also the validation of your Lead-Free process before you go into production.

The CE Analytics laboratory services include:

1. Lead-Free Process Capability Validation comprised of:

�Macro and microscopic inspection and analysis of processed assemblies compared to IPC and J-STD requirements.

�Validation Report with recommendations for process optimization if applicable.

�CE Analytics Lead-Free Process Capability Validation Certificate.

2. Voiding Analysis

3. Macroscopic Examination of Processed Assemblies (non-destructive)

4. Microscopic Examination of Solder Connection Integrity.

Practical Lead-Free dummy components are exact mechanical equivalents of live components used only when the physical properties of the components are required. These components can cost as much as 80% less than live components making the ideal for testing of solder processes, machine setup and other process evaluations.

Practical Components� are headquartered in Los Alamitos California with distributors worldwide. Cookson Electronics is a global leader in the electronics manufacturing industry and is a division of Cookson Group plc which employees over 6,000 people.
