Indium Corporation is proud to announce that two company technologists have earned their designation as SMTA-Certified Process Engineers.

Joining a host of certified Indium Corporation engineers are: Kimberly Flanagan, Technical Support Engineer, Eastern USA and Canada; and David Strabel, Technical Support Engineer, Midwest USA.

SMTA Certification is a unique program, sponsored by the Surface Mount Technology Association (SMTA), which recognizes and certifies competence across the entire SMT assembly process at an engineering level. This certification is one of the electronics assembly industry's most respected validations of process excellence.

Flanagan provides technical support and guidance related to process steps, equipment, techniques, and materials to customers. In addition, she delivers technical training to staff and industry partners. Flanagan was introduced to Indium Corporation through the company’s summer college internship program, working in the Quality Department. She remained with Indium Corporation as a part-time Quality Engineering Technician while she finished her bachelor’s degree in Physics from Le Moyne College in December 2016.

Strabel provides expert technical assistance and guidance to Indium Corporation’s current and potential customers to resolve soldering process-related challenges and enable increased levels of performance. Strabel joined Indium Corporation in 2017, and has more than eight years of experience in SMT/PCBA process engineering. At his previous employer, Eastek International, he received the company’s most prestigious recognition–the President’s Award.
