About

I have been in the mechanical design industry for more than 14 years as a Mechanical Engineering Technologist. I have worked closely with customers, welders, millwrights, machinists, and otherwise to create elegant and viable solutions for the forestry, mining, oil, and mobile equipment industries. I have a passion and aptitude for mechanical design which has been a veritable force throughout my personal and professional life. My experience has largely been involved in designing and detailing machined and fabricated parts, assemblies and systems, troubleshooting and improving efficiency and reliability, new product development, drive systems and customer service. I have years experience with industrial rotating equipment, material handling systems, mobile equipment, hydraulics, and electric drive systems.
In my spare time I do photography, and like to build custom motorcycles, cars, and trucks as well as general metal work which include MIG and TIG welding, and manual machining. The latest addition to my garage is a 3D printer.
I completed a diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology at NAIT in 2007 and have since built a career in mechanical design with experience in the field, hands on and at a desk.
Thank you for your consideration,
Ben Anderson
