Indium Engineers Earn Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation has announced that three company engineers have earned their designation as Lean Six Sigma Green Belt-certified. With their recent designation, Daniel Siedsma, Chemical Process Engineer; Adam Murling, Technical Support Engineer; and Michael Wood, Manufacturing Process Engineer, join a number of employees who are Lean Six Sigma certified at Indium.

Lean Six Sigma is a business approach that focuses on improving workplace performance by reducing waste and process variations. The certification process involves two weeks of training that culminates in an examination in statistics, designed experiments, statistical process control, and "lean" continuous improvement concepts.

Daniel_Siedsma.jpgSiedsma joined Indium in 2011 as a chemical process engineer and performs research and development with Indium's metals and compounds products. He earned his bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) with a minor in general psychology.

Adam_Murling.jpgMurling joined Indium in 2014 as a technical support engineer. He is responsible for providing leading-edge technical support for Indium's global account initiatives through SMT process optimization, material recommendations, and customer training. He is an active blogger and has authored numerous technical papers. He earned his bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Clarkson University.

Michael_Wood.jpgWood joined Indium in 2017 as a manufacturing process engineer working with Indium's engineered solder products. He earned his bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering technology from the State University of New York Polytechnic Insitute.

Surface Treatment Enabling Low-Temperature Soldering to Aluminum

07/15/2019 | Divyakant Kadiwala, Averatek Corporation
An increasingly popular method to meet the need for lower cost circuitry is the use of aluminum on polyester (Al-PET) substrates. This material is gaining popularity and has found wide use in RFID tags, low-cost LED lighting, and other single-layer circuits. However, both aluminum and PET have their own constraints and require special processing to make finished circuits.

Failures and Reliability in Soldering

07/09/2019 | Michael Gouldsmith and Zen Lee, Thermaltronics
The definition of failure is "the lack of success in doing or achieving something, especially in relation to a particular activity." If the activity is concerning a soldering process, such a failure can have a downstream impact far beyond the actual solder joint. In this regard, it is first necessary to understand what constitutes a good solder joint because appearance is too often deemed a success.
