Indium Corporation Product Manager of PCB Assembly Materials Tim Jensen was recently recognized at IPC APEX Expo for his contributions to the electronics manufacturing industry and for contributing his time and expertise through active IPC committee service.

The IPC-Association Connecting Electronics Industries presented Tim with a Distinguished Committee Service Award for his contributions to Amendment 1 of the Joint Industry Standard: Requirements for Soldering Fluxes (J-STD-004B), the standard used to classify and characterize soldering flux materials for PCB assembly.

As a product manager, Tim works with customers to troubleshoot and optimize SMT process lines. He specializes in SnPb and Pb-free solder paste, halogen-free soldering materials, wave solder fluxes, bar solder, rework fluxes, and flux-cored wire.

Tim is an SMTA-certified process engineer and earned his bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Clarkson University. He readily shares his expertise by authoring technical papers, writing for technical publications, and participates actively in several IPC standards development committees.
