PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Quality Engineer, Integra Technologies LLC ( August 2017 - Dec 2017)

•While working on a client’s site, analyzed the quality assurance system and made recommendations for improvements. These were incorporated into the current quality assurance system.

•Authored Test Protocols and performed Test Method Validations (TMV) for mechanical devices.

•Assisted with Installation(IQ), Operational (OQ), and Performance (PQ) Qualifications data.

•Involved in new product development activities such as creating prototypes and preparing sketches in SolidWorks and selecting appropriate measuring gages. Hands on experience on remediation projects to update the inspection sheets, routers, and drawings.

•Developed programs and methods to optimize production capability and reduce cycle time, improving manufacturing efficiency, and overall productivity

Manufacturing Engineer, S M Technologies, Pune (June 2014 - June 2015)

•Developed designs in CATIA and SolidWorks utilizing the Six Sigma methodology for the process design improvements and defect reduction. Performed Test Method Validations, DFMEA, FEA analysis, CTQ’s and root cause analysis.

•Experienced with the Design Control Method and developing the deliverables for Design History Files(DHF).

•Developed Verification/Qualification deliverables including Requirements Documents, Functional and Design Specifications, Test Method Validation protocols, and Summary Reports. Experienced with the Continuous improvement and IQ, OQ, PQ validations.

•Improved design reduced the cost of the part by 24% and the total cost of the machine by 7%.

Mechanical Engineer Intern, Winner Electronics, Nashik (July 2013 - June 2014)

•Developed the Machine for Variable Pitch Spring coiling. Performed the quality check on the products of the old machine and prepared a detailed analysis of the defects. Developed the new machine to reduce the quality defects and the cost of production.

•Prepared sketches of the machines part and Performed structural analysis in the SolidWorks. Also, prepared prototype of the machine.

•The automation of the machine was done with the help of PLC programming of the system using motor actuated by the AC drive which controls the feed of the spring wire by varying speed of lead screw and the rotation of the chuck.

•Performed the quality process for the new machine’s products to analyze the defects and life of the product.

PROJECTS EXPERIENCE

Analysis and programming the code in MATLAB for the optimization of the trajectory of two robots moving in the workspace with obstacle avoidance using state estimation method of Kalman filter (Dec 2016)

•The intention of the project was to calculate the optimized path for the robots starting from the same point and reaching to the final point at the same time with at least one robot going with the optimized route avoiding the obstacles coming in the route using the collocation method and the back-integration method.

•Comparing results of both the methods to get the most optimized and the most reliable method for the trajectory planning with the obstacle avoidance.

Design and manufacture finger for the RA-5 Gripper for holding varying diameter cylinder by 3D printing (June 2016)

•The purpose of the project was to develop fingers for the RA-5 gripper to hold the variable diameter cylinders by a 3D printing method to reduce the cost and increase the production rate as much as possible.

•The intent was achieved with designing the optimized part in ANSYS and analyzing the part in ANSYS workbench. Manufactured from the ABC material to hold the aluminum cylinder with the variable diameter by 3D printing.
