About

I am a mechanical design engineer who is currently involved in innovative product development providing support on hardware and mechanical aspects. I have extensive manufacturing experience in metalworking manufacturing industry. Additionally I am have also woodworking, 3D printing, injection molding and laser cladding manufacturing processes. I am an expert Solidworks, Autodesk inventor, Rhino and Google Sketchup user. In addition I have some experience in using Catia v5. I am also proficient in performing finite element method analysis for structural as well as thermomechanical steady-state and transient analysis in various FEM software packages such as Ansys and Comsol multiphysics . My professional day-to-day activity involves working with the following manufacturing processes: sheet metal/weldment profile material CNC laser cutting, CNC bending, rolling, CNC-milling, CNC-turning, welding, assembly, outsourcing, wiring and PCB board design.

I can provide support both on product development as well as manufacturing aspects of your porjects.
