Highly accomplished engineering professional with an advanced history of CNC programming, engineering design, CNC machine operation/prove out, CNC fixture design, and supervisory roles. I am an Effective communicator with Reputation for exceptional leadership, management and team-building abilities. Currently I am seeking to further my career in an engineering/manufacturing management. I am searching for an environment to utilize my skills while facing new challenges, in a company I can grow with.
Operation Leadership: Proven achievements in managing complex operations. Distributing and allocating resources and workloads among a cross-functional team. An Effective leader and key leader in production; the “go to guy” in everyday production. Adept in multitasking and very quick in decision making, problem solving, conflict reduction between personnel, scheduling, and operations.
Engineering overview: Lead SolidWorks designer for custom 4 and 5 axis CNC fixturing. Designer/programmer for secondary fixturing and operations (presses pin stamping, robotic loading, laser engraving, tumbling, etc.). Independently I am Capable of working solo from concept to prototype. Able to develop realistic cycle time analyses for quoting/price point determination (cost changes through quantities and part modifications for large scale production).
CNC over view: Operating Bridgeport style CNC machines to produce my designs. Handwriting G and M code for Mitsubishi control systems. Programming with CAM (EDGECAM) and MazaCAM(MAZAK Simulation). G and M code on 4 and 5 axis Horizontal and Vertical CNC machines. I am also responsible for updating machine parameters.
Strategic planning and Execution: Maintain Effective balance between conceived ideas and strategic thinking while focusing on the details of execution. Delegating work to other Machinists, CNC programmers, tool and die makers, and Quality Techs.
Organizational process changes: Develop and implement new process changes to machining and manufacturing environments to: increase production, reduce scrap, reduce cycle times, increase safety and awareness, and reducing stress while increasing morale of workers by implementing/retrofitting processes based on individual needs/ergonomics.
Continuing education: Always interested in learning more. Currently taking every opportunity available to gain certifications and further my understating of the machining processes and management. I am currently spending 3-5 hours per week watching online course lectures in my free time.
