Thermal Spray Technology

515 Progress way

Sun Prairie, WI 53590

Responsible for four thermal spray work cells Two HVOF lines one with limited changeover aan one highly flexible. Two plasma spray cells with one spraying only one product line and the other highly flexible. Duties

● Work with engineers and operators to improve efficiencies and operations

● Produce work instruction / job instruction documents to standardize procedures

● Reduce in plant and warranty losses.

● Conduct statistical analysis to reduce cost and improve efficiencies.

● Incorporate process and product improvements.

● Use lean and Six Sigma processes to improve efficiency and reduce losses.

● Maintain and upgrade permanent thermal spray masking materials. This required monitoring the condition of the masks as well as working with local suppliers to obtain replacement parts at a minimum cost


● Employing time studies and statistical analysis, reduced manufacturing time by 50% on a product in the HVOF flexible line.

● Reduced manufacturing time 40% on another product by designing new fixtures and masking.

● Reduced change overtimes by writing clear and concise cell work instructions. Valmet
