May 2012 – Feb 2013

Shetron Private Ltd

Worked as Mechanical Engineer in the Design and Manufacturing Team

Designed dies and molds using AutoCAD, Solid edge and AnSys.

Worked with sheet metal and fiber foils for manufacturing composite cans, fiber drums etc and generating BOM.

Managed processes and tools for assembly production and testing.

Ensured non-conforming products are identified and placed on restriction.

Academic Projects:

Fabrication of hybrid C-MEMS/Metal micro-devices for neural applications

Designed the array on the Silicon chip using Coventorware.

Completed Positive and Negative Lithography in a Clean Room for two different fabrication processes to determine the best process.

Tested chips under an electron microscope for connectivity and ohmmeter for conductivity

Design of Spinal Occipital Implant

Developed a new design of Spinal Occipital Implant to counter the flaws of a preexisting device.

Designed the Occipital Plate using Solid Works and Stress analysis was done using COMSOL.

Generated an FDA regulatory submission plan and a prototype of the design was 3D printed.

Characterization of mechanical properties of carbon fiber and glass fiber laminated composites

Investigated the experimental study of tensile and flexural properties (glass fiber and carbon fiber laminated composite materials).

Fabricated the test specimen by Vacuum Bag Molding technique with the ratio of 70:30 (Reinforcement : Matrix) and prepared in accordance with ASTM standards.

Innovation in the field of PTCA

Designed a new and innovative design of cutting balloon catheter used in PTCA.

Used Solid Works to create a new design which effectively cuts and remove the plaque without allowing it to enter into the blood stream.
