Brake Foundation Specialist
Latin America (LATAM) Foundation Brake responsible for entire design. Main activities: Feature analysis, sizing, standardization, DFMEA's, test plan definition and result analysis.
Components under my responsibility: Brake calipers (front and rear) and disc heat shields.
* Developing ways to eliminate or, at least, reduce brake noise levels, safety., rotors, rear brakes, drums, linnings, EPB's (Electronic
* Developing a low drag caliper, from a current component, to reduce fuel consumption. It was possible to reduce the brake drag from average 3,7Nm to 0,73Nm with punctual changes, as adopting pad retraction clips and tuning the caliper seal groove chamfer. Other components, as brake booster and rear drum brake were also changed to recover the previous pedal feeling.
Mechanical Technician High School: Polimig Ensino Tcénico - MG Conclusion year: 1998 Professional target Work in Brake Industry as an engineer, performing tasks to improve sytem performance and lead technical development in a team work environment, taking advantage of my 10 year experience in a world car maker player.
Personal target Giving to my family the best life condition I can provide, in my homeland or abroad, all done with hard working, ethics and obstination in results seeking.
* Creating a Brake Caliper and Pads "Virtual Shelf", with a global benchmarking analysis of best technical solution, quality indicators, weigth, standardization, cost and time to market. The target of this study was to define the best compromise, according to the pillars above, to choose calipers and pads for vehicle of each segment. mass and costs, and
with the european and asian coleagues, with deep technical discussions and focused on cost reduction opportunities.
