Work Experience

Saporito Plating and Manufacturing, Cicero, IL. 2005-2006 Maintenance electrician for a metal plating and anodizing company. I diagnosed and repaired high power current rectifier systems and their electrical/electronic controllers used for electroplating and aluminum anodizing. Responsible for the continued operation of PLC controlled equipment using ladder-logic programs, hoists, conveyors, pumps, mixers, ventilation systems, driers and chillers, which I would troubleshoot and then clean, adjust, repair or replace as needed. Tested, diagnosed and repaired or replaced relay-logic controllers, diodes, fuses, motor starters, VFDs, limit and proximity switches, 4-20mA analog transmitters, sensors, temperature controllers, timers, SCRs, solenoids and transistors used in the production equipment controls. Performed preventive maintenance and controller overhauls during down-time, which is needed regularly due to the corrosive atmosphere from the hazardous chemicals used in the processes.

Hunter Panels, Franklin Park, IL. 2004-2005 Maintenance technician for insulating foam board manufacturer. Responsible for forming and high temperature curing machinery, automatic alignment tables with high speed cutting saws, stacking/shrink-wrapping machines and conveyors. I safely maintained the hazardous and highly flammable chemical storage tanks and their associated switches, sensors, pumps, valves and distribution system to the production line through adjustment, removal and cleaning or replacement. Diagnosed and repaired electrical, mechanical, pneumatic and hydraulic issues as necessary to maintain production. Replaced large saw blades, maintained the air compressor and blowers, cleaned and adjusted the dust accumulator system, and installed vacuum pipes and electrical conduits/wiring. Performed preventive maintenance and repair on all plant and building equipment.

Partylight Manufacturing, Batavia, IL. 2000-2003 Maintenance technician for candle manufacturer. Responsible for candle-making machinery, boilers, chillers, compressors, hot wax and steam/chilled water storage and distribution systems, and associated processing and packaging equipment. I diagnosed problems and repaired as needed to maintain a high level of productivity in the fast-paced manufacturing environment. Preventive maintenance of candle machines, conveyors and packaging machines was performed through lubrication of mechanical parts, adjustment and replacement of belts, and cleaning of equipment. Installed candle machines, leveling them and connecting their electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic, chilled water, hot wax, and steam systems; troubleshooting and adjusting for correct operation.

Dreisilker Electric Motors, Glen Ellyn, IL. 1997-2000 Electrical field service technician for electric motor repair shop. Drove company van to various customer locations to troubleshoot, repair or install electric motors and their controls. Thoroughly tested electric motors with meggers and other specialty test equipment, returning them to the shop for rewinding as needed, followed with reinstallation. Replaced motor bearings on-location as needed. Worked with encoders, decoders and VFDs; troubleshooting, adjusting and repairing them and their associated electrical control systems. Installed high amperage conductors for large motors and the conduits that contain them. I worked with a variety of foreign and specialty motors. Customers included Caterpillar and A.B. Dick, where I worked on their large synchronous motor systems for compressed shop air, and various printing press, machining, and plastic working industries in the Chicago area.

Cygnet Controls, Darien, IL. 1993-1997 Electric control panel assembler and field service installer for custom electrical control equipment manufacturer. I performed the same duties as for my prior job, but for a wide variety of industrial applications. Wired PLCs, touch-screens, VFDs, Ethernet, temperature/ pressure controllers and timers; programming these per application. Installed and wired equipment at customer locations, installing limit and proximity switches, pressure and level transducers, temperature probes, and pneumatic and hydraulic systems; troubleshooting these and adjusting them for correct operation. Examples include Mars M&M candy manufacturing machines, American National Can production lines, Panasonic automated assembly lines, and automated CNC machining equipment lines.

Wired components such as relays, PLCs, timers, motor starters, circuit breakers, disconnects and transformers following schematics and tested the panels using electrical test equipment, troubleshooting and rewiring or adjusting as needed. I installed equipment at customer locations, performing what was necessary for correct operation for the application, consulting with company and customer engineers as needed.
