Experience

  • Mechanical Design and Engineer Tekno, INC · Full-time Nov 2017 – Present 3 yrs 5 mos Cave City, KY, United States Tekno is a leading conveyor and automation manufacturer for primarily the automotive industry. My job here was to mechanically design equipment to be built, installed, and integrated in facilities all over the world. I worked with customers on an individual project basis to design systems to fit their specific needs. After approval from the customer, I would release a drawing package to our technicians and oversee the build. I managed timelines and manage the project through install and sign-off from the customer. I used the programs AutoCAD and SolidWorks.
  • Manufacturing Engineer ARC Automotive · Full-time Aug 2013 – Nov 2016 3 yrs 3 mos Morgantown, KY, United States Arc Automotive manufactures Air bags. I started as an intern and I was later hired on full time. At the time Arc had just installed new and never used before manufacturing equipment. We were the facility tasked with the responsibility of proving out the new equipment. I spent most of my time tracking downtown on each individual machine. From there I used SolidWorks to redesign tooling and machine components to reduce downtime. Most of the work was small scale, but it grew over time to designing and building a small machine to help speed up the laser welding process on a side curtain air bag.
  • Quality Intern General Motors · Part-time Jan 2013 – Aug 2013 7 mos Bowling Green, KY, United States As a quality intern I was asked to develop a testing procedure for technicians to carry out on three car frames daily. The purpose was to identify reoccurring under torqued self tapping screws. With over 300 screws on the frame the previous procedure identified that some screws were under torqued, it did not identify which screws were under torqued. After implementing the new procedure I was able to narrow down where and which screws were consistently out of the torque specification. This information was relayed to the controls engineering team and the specific robots applying those screws were retaught. This solved the issue.
