About

With over 25 years of experience in SolidWorks and AutoCAD across various industries, I am a semi-retired professional with three design patents for products in current use. My expertise spans plastic resins, injection tooling, costing, and various metals such as aluminum (6061-T6), aluminum die-casting, stainless steels, and titanium. I am adept at calculating stresses for fatigue, breaking points, and load requirements.
I possess extensive knowledge in designing tooling for molds, including colorant, UV, and wall thickness considerations, as well as gate locations, shut-off, and knock-out pin placements. For military-grade products requiring high yield strengths, such as 304, 326, 17-4, and 1505 stainless steels, I can identify weak points using SolidWorks and other testing equipment.
As a comprehensive engineering service provider, I am prepared to support your engineering and design needs. My SolidWorks skills have benefited numerous industries, including medical products, toys, printer components, aircraft, satellites, drones, and handheld devices.
Additionally, I can assist with manufacturing processes to reduce costs and waste while streamlining operations using 5S methodology and flow charts via Visio and MS-Project. I have experience in aiding the application process for utility and design patents, including both provisional and nonprovisional applications. I hold a BSME degree, six-sigma green-belt along with solidowrks certification.
