Fireblast is an international manufacturer of Fire Training Props, Props accessories and realistic simulators that assist fire fighters in preparation to engage real fire activities. My task was to use client information and match it to what's possible and present a new product design for customer approval. I also work a great deal of redesign and sustaining legacy products. I was privileged to work on new products as the Leak Tree, the Rollover Haz-Mat Tanker trainer. I also was in the team of engineers tasked to redesign our new Fire Flash trainer. Some of the legacy products I help redesign is our Entertainment Unit and the Double bed. To help me with the design of these products I used SolidWorks.

One of my most important jobs was to work with the General Manager/President of the company to go through the sales form and develop layout precise to our customer specifications, then make recommendations as needed and send it to the client for approval. Work with the manufacturing department to standardize the final drawings per ISO standard. Work to resolve manufacturing problems as it pertains to drawings and designs. Using SolidWorks 2011 to design Pathology, Autopsy, Funeral, Necropsy, Veterinary, Anatomy Dissection Equipment and Instruments, Stainless steel Tables, Cabinets and Enclosures. Follow projects from point of sales to Manufacturing, research new purchased components to see now it can save the company some money.

Label-Aire. Electro Mechanical Design Engineer February 2010 – November 2010

Label Aire Inc. Manufactures customized machines that applies labels to products. My duties at Label Aire included, using SolidWorks and Made to Manage to design the mechanical/electro mechanical section of the new system in the project that was being worked on. My task was to design a new Stand, a new Conveyor System and it’s Sheet Metal Enclosure and new Guard Rail Support. Safety was always the number one priority, because of all the moving parts in the machine. Working with others in the department, I helped detail, dimension, and check tolerance interface on other completed drawings in order to release a complete package to manufacturing department.

Brown International Mechanical Design Engineer (relocation) March 2006–November 2008

Using SolidWorks, AutoCAD, and J.D. Edwards, I worked on high performance Stainless Steel food processing machines; managed my projects from conceptual to prototype and work with the customer to ensure their satisfaction during and after installation; confer with other engineers and relevant departments to implement operating procedures, resolve machine failures, and provide technical information to the customer and our service department; identified problems and reviewed related information to evaluate and develop options, and then implemented solutions to prevent down time; made continuous improvements and modifications to the electro mechanical systems and components of the Fruit Extractors, our BOSS System Sizer (Brown Optimized Smart Space), the B.O.E. (Brown Oil Extraction) systems and their Sheet Metal Enclosures for a more effective process; researched and analyzed design proposals, specifications and other data to evaluate the feasibility, and maintenance requirements of new machine design and its application. One of my last projects at Brown International was to join a team of hand picked engineers to come up with a new Fruit Extractor with high Juice Yield. We accomplished this task by compiling all the data of the entire machine failures and why or where we were losing juice. With this information in hand, we redesigned the Juice Extractor and sent it to Florida for testing, just before we were shut down in California; researched, designed, evaluated, installed and maintained mechanical products and equipments to meet mechanical engineering principle requirements. To this end, I traveled to Florida on a regular basis to oversee installation and part repairs to ensure that machines and equipment were installed properly and functioning according to specifications; modified parts on one of our biggest Juice Extractor that Brown manufactures (The 573 Juice Extractor), new systems like the Vibration Isolator for the BOSS system, Hopper Sensors and their mounts and the Diverter project. I also dealt with customer problems and feedback in respect to engineering designs.

Vishay Transducers Mechanical Engineer (relocation) February 2003–March 2006

I managed new and old projects for five different consolidated companies. With basic instructions I created and tested tools and fixtures for production to use to assemble parts before shipping; developed product concepts and designs per company product development procedures, using SolidWorks, Mechanical Desk Top and J.D.
