Keurig Green Mountain, Burlington, MA April 2012 to present

Mechanical Designer, direct hire position.

Designed and documented devices for high speed automated production equipment, related to the varied sized of K-Cup products. Designed a vacuum system for the holding of cut paper filters prior to being formed. Also worked on devices related to an Automated Needle Puncture test equipment. All documentation was processed through the ADEPT and Teamcenter PLM systems.

Responsible for the quality assurance of all equipment documentation. Established and chaired a standards committee to create a corporate wide standard for designing and/or obtaining all future production equipment. Personally authored all Standard Operating Procedures for Drafting and CAD standards as well as other workflow SOP’s for documentation control.

ASML, Wilton, CT June 2011 to April 2012

Mechanical Designer, under temporary contract.

Designed and documented testing, validation tooling and caging tooling, for lithography equipment building. All Engineering Record and documentation release done using a complex custom interface with SAP.

DePuy Spine, a division of Johnson & Johnson, Raynham, MA Dec 2004 to Apr 2011

Senior Designer, hired direct after a six month contract position.

Designed and documented custom surgical tools for use with spinal implants. A member of the Minimally Invasive Surgery design team that launched two new product lines. Awarded seven company patents. Participated in cadaver labs to obtain surgeon feedback on new prototypes. Performed rapid-prototyping from CAD models. All documentation processed through the AGILE PLM system.

Learned the sequence of certain spinal operations, and spinal anatomy through internal tutorials and visiting live operations.

Some of the instruments designed and developed were a Spinal Rod Reducer, a Vertebral Rotator Rack, a Self-Retaining Anti-Torque Wrench, a combination Castle Nut Driver and Extension remover and a Spondylisthesis Lever.

One of the instruments designed consisted of a combined Compressor/Distracter with a unique switch that allowed one instrument to do both functions.

Some of the additional instruments designed included a Blade Retractor, an Artificial Disc Inserter, Expandable and Extending Retractors an Articulating Bone Distracter a Vertebral Trial Inserter a Self-Retaining Staple Inserter, a Perforated Plate Bending Device, and various ancillary instruments.

A member of the drafting & design standards committee, that published a quarterly newsletter outlining tips, techniques and best practices for the entire R&D department.

Timken Aerospace, Lebanon, NH Sep to Dec 2004

Specifications Checker, under temporary contract.

The Engineering section of the Customer Support Department required all external customer drawings to be verified for compliance. The task consisted of cross checking mechanical drawings of tapered split bearings, against the internal product specifications and vendor database.

Completed 160+ pending product orders, for compliance, within a 3 month timeframe.

Waters Corporation, Milford, MA Apr to Sep 2004

Tooling Designer, under temporary contract.

The assignment was in the Machining Operations Department to perform tooling and fixture designs for high production machined parts.

Eliminated the need for two separate machining fixtures by designing a fixture that allowed the manufacture of two different parts to be machined with only one set-up. This fixture also incorporated two separate operations to be done on each of the two different parts. This resulted in a cost savings by reducing machining time and set-up time, as well as eliminating an extra machining fixture.

Osram Sylvania, Manchester, NH 1983 - 2003

Equipment Designer, Documentation Coordinator, hired direct after a six month contract position.

Designed various manufacturing devices for High Intensity Discharge lighting products. Including test fixtures and ergonomic workstations. Redesigned existing equipment for increased efficiency. Created all engineering related documentation, assemblies, details, BOM’s and ECO’s. Performed the checking of all departmental engineering documentation for accuracy, thoroughness, and conforming to proper drafting standards.

Worked with manufacturing to identify key issues on work flow & environment. Designed a manufacturing workstation for improved ergonomic conditions to facilitate a variety of workers with and without physical limitations and successfully deployed the design to the manufacturing environment.

Developed a prototype testing fixture to measure the wall thickness of the glass outer jacket of 17 different lamp products for increased accuracy and testing reliability.

Improved a welding process by designing various manufacturing fixtures, for a hand held operation, to accurately hold lamp product filament parts during manufacturing of multiple product types. Resulting in increased welding accuracy and reduced shrinkage.

Designed all of the pneumatic systems to the robotic interface used in an electrostatic coating machine that coated the inside of the lamps.

Created a center of expertise of CAD Unigraphics application software. Including setting up a User Group and leading monthly meetings. Trained all new incoming engineers and instructed all department engineers on new releases. Also provided trouble-shooting on complex 3D modeling solutions.
