About

Strong SolidWorks CAD skills (15+ years) for a vast range of design projects: Custom Machine/Automated machines, tooling, fixtures, dies and environmental projects.
29+ years of tool design using AutoCAD and/or SolidWorks including: Progressive dies design, single hit die design, Draw tooling design, Expand tooling design, Prototype tooling design and Fixture design.
20+ years of Product design, Product Development projects (end user part development as well as tooling to make the product), Product Rendering projects.
Design for 3D printing and 3D printing projects for early product samples or as assembly verifications.
Experience with pneumatics, hydraulics, robotic end of arm tools (EOAT’s), pick and place units, dial tables/indexers and various vision systems.
Developed the Hercules Patient Repositioner system for The Morel Company. (hidden)
I have designed progressive dies for multiple companies around the world.
Paper to CAD models to bring old legacy 2D CAD and paper prints into the 3D world.
Reverse Engineering of existing parts, assemblies, machines. Also reverse engineer to 3D print so that multiple parts can be combined into 1 3D printed part to eliminate stocking of multiple components.
I have designed a number of products that people had very rough sketches of or ideas in their head that needed to be turned into models and manufacturing drawings. Many of these are to make their life easier or in other cases to kick off their manufacturing business.

Other experience

  • Automated progressive die design I have designed automated progressive dies that would change parts on the fly without stopping the press. This can be done to minimize downtime for changeovers or as in the case of some parts that need to be sequenced so that they always remain in a specific series for subsequent operations after the stamping operation.
  • Water treatment facility design I have experience in the layout of farm water treatment systems and design of specific machines involved in these systems.
