Indium Corporation Product Manager of PCB Assembly Materials Tim Jensen will present Lead-Free Assembly for High Yields and Reliability as part of SMTA's webtorial series on December 6 and 13, 2011, from 1 to 2:30 p.m.

Tim's course will include an overview of how Pb-Free assembly and the global environmental regulations affect the electronics assembler today; the selection process of Pb-Free alloys, PWBs, components, solder pastes, and fluxes to achieve both high process yields and reliable products; assembly process development and optimization, and more.

As a product manager, Tim works with customers to troubleshoot and optimize SMT process lines. He specializes in Sn/Pb 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 has 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. He also authors a blog, which can be found at blogs.indium.com/blog/tim-jensen.
