When most people think about authenticity testing they think it’s simply a matter of performing a few tests and noting the results. But the reality is that it often goes way beyond that, especially when an anomaly is identified. That’s because the presence of an anomaly does not necessarily signify that a component is substandard or inauthentic. While that may sound counterintuitive at first, it actually makes sense when you consider the complexities of the manufacturing process.
In our experience, three authenticity tests that are most prone to false fails are the XRF material analysis, delidding die analysis and Dynasolve 750 test. Better understanding how these tests are done and the nature of the findings will make you a more informed customer—and that’s good for everyone. So please read on… and feel free to contact an ACT technician or engineer with any questions you may have about these or any other component authenticity test ACT offers.
