About

With over 25 years of experience I have obtained a wide breath of capabilities, or market proven skills. Which include, process development, motion control theory & architecture, certified Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) static & dynamic, sheetmetal design, plastic molding (injection, compression, etc..), composite structure design, precision machining of various materials, thermal dynamics, pneumatics, motor design, automated systems development, lower level robotics development, small & large mechanism design, optical mechanical interfaces, test platforms, manufacturing fixtures and tools. All designs I have produced normally are prototyped by me and tested for design verification.

For over 15 years I have used CAD software to model all designs, to ensuring integration, and data retention. The CAD system I employ currently use is Solidworks but I have experience with wide range of systems making interpolating between systems seamless. My experience also has touched on various arenas, military, semiconductor, electronic packaging, automation, security, photonics, and machine design this has prepared me to handle the large majority of mechanical design needs.

    Customer interaction and service
    Design work consisted of developing a copier I was in charge of moving the photos to the stacker eachphoto needed to be stamped with the date and time then stacked this would have to be done to sizes2x3 - 11 x 17. This required development of drive train to turn rollers and control speed. Each picturewould have to be straight for stacking as well located for stamping
