Indium Corporation is proud to continue its legacy of producing the highest quality technical support engineers, benefitting both its global customer base as well as the surface mount technology (SMT) industry. This legacy is evidenced by its current tally of 36 SMTA (Surface Mount Technology Association) certified employees as well as the impressive accomplishment of Technical Engineer Carson Burt, who recently achieved a score of 98%—the highest in SMTA history—while earning his SMTA CSMTPE (certified surface mount technology process engineer) certification.
“My success on the SMTA CSMTPE exam is largely owed to the unwavering support I received from my colleagues at Indium Corporation,” said Burt. “It is an honor to work for a company that places such a high priority on the technical competence, continuing education, and overall professionalism of its people.”
With the recent addition of Burt, along with team members Josh Dobransky and Thuy Nguyen, Indium Corporation’s entire U.S. Technical Support team has earned the SMTA CSMTPE certification. This important designation, which certifies competence across the SMT assembly process, is one of the electronics assembly industry’s most respected validations of process excellence.
"We at Indium Corporation are proud of Carson's impressive accomplishment as well as that of our entire technical support team,” said Adam Murling, Technical Services Manager, USA. “Our 100% CSMTPE certification rate is further evidence of the commitment we have to serving our customers with industry-leading technical support."

We were back in San Diego, maybe for a “long vacation,” as IPC APEX EXPO is in Anaheim next year. Before we get to Anaheim, though, let’s talk about the show: It was a great week. I spent Sunday and Monday visiting some excellent Professional Development courses. As you know, this is a fast-changing industry, and we have to keep learning to stay ahead. On Monday, I attended the Microvia Weak Interface/Reliability subcommittee, and on Tuesday, the Ultra-HDI Technology Committee.
