OBJECTIVE: Automation Engineering position where I can make Quality and Efficiency improvements to a company's production.

ASC INDUSTRIES, INC. Automation Engineer

(December 2014 – February 2019)

Program development, editing and troubleshooting for automotive assembly test cells and laboratory design testing.

Programming Fanuc robot motions, recovery and PLC communications, and Dalsa Vision guided Denso robots.

Incorporation of Lasers, Pin Stampers, Promess Servo presses, and Keyence/Cognex vision/barcode/safety product lines.

Projects, Configurations, Segments, and Q Programs for AMP SSM23IP-2EG stepSERVO technology, LabVIEW editing, Cincinnati Test Leak Testers, Ingersoll Rand and Bosch Rexroth Fixtured Tightening Spindles.

Designed Airtex’s explosion proof fuel pump test laboratory with a flexible programming structure for six automotive fuel pumps, two per three tanks with individual fuel types, can be tested with a savings of $100,000 per each fully tested pump.

Programing the 5069-L330ER PLC and PanelView Plus 7 HMI was accomplished using eWON for remote Ethernet access.

Simultaneously remoting into a Virtual Server for data collection using FactoryTalk Transaction Manager and Microsoft SQL Data Management viewed or retrieved using SQL Query.

Intrinsically Safe protection by Pepperl+Fuchs were incorporated.

Design Electrical Schematics and Panel Layouts with the use of AutoCAD.

Designed and implementation of an automated water pump life cycle tester with a flexible programming structure.

Control, measurement, and data collection of two automotive water pump tests running simultaneously and independently while sharing the same full range of recipes.

Servo drives with dynamic braking resistors and secured calibration measurement with self-tuning PID features insures accurate test requirements are achieved quickly.

Data collection of Speed, Pressure, Flow, and Temperature is redundantly stored and backed up. Recipe Copy and Save features allow each complex test to be reproduced, edited and saved. The tester can independently start, end and run the same or different tests from the same controller. Data collection using Rockwell RSLinx Classic Single Node and Visual Basic programming in Microsoft Excel were utilized to implement data into the desired finished formats per automotive requirements.

Safety features, moist air relief valve protection, one touch toggle between unit conversions and real time graphic charting, and pully conversions were designed for easy application and for verification of valid data collection with an understanding that tests can run hours, days, months, or years.

QUADREL LABELING SYSTEMS Electrical Controls Engineer

(June 2011 – October 2014)

Programming Ladder Logic PLCs using RS Logix 5000 ME for CompactLogix and RS Logix 500 for MicroLogix 1400, and Connected Components Workbench (CCW) for the Micro800 series.

Creation of HMI Operator Screens using Crimson 3.0 for Red Lion, Parker Interact Xpress Manager for Parker and FactoryTalk View Studio for PanelView Plus 700, 1000, and 6 with extended features such as Remote Desktop Connection, pop-up screens, multiple security levels with hidden screens and elements.

Programming Servos using Emerson Power Tools Pro-V5.2 for Emerson Drives and ST Configurator for STAC 6 Stepper Drives.

Setting up In-Sight Explorer 4.7.3 for COGNEX Vision Systems and teaching Font Libraries. Setting up Hot Stamp (Printers) using CoLOS Tools 5.0 for Markem Imaje.

Development of both serial and Ethernet communications between PLC, Printer and Vision Systems. Use of MACOLA Progression Workflow Explorer for BOMs.

Use of ORCAD Capture and AutoCAD Lt for Electrical Schematics and Panel Layouts.

Use of eWON for PLC Remote Access.

Development of Labeling Systems and Sleevers controlling multiple Stepper or Servo Labeling Heads, while using DC and AC Drives for control of Wraps, Feedscrews, Top Traps, Speed Control and Compensation. Control of Printers, Cameras, Stop Gates, Eject systems, Crossovers, Managed Switches and Ethernet Communications, as well as, Excel Labeling and Printing Speed Equations used in solving multiple equations to determine Wrap Speeds, Intermittent or Continuous Printer Speeds, and Stepper or Servo Labeling Head options.

BEVCORP LLC Electrical Controls Engineer

(September 2006 – May 2009)

Team design and engineering for new and refurbished Food and Beverage machine equipment.
