Professional Experience:

Hamrock, Inc. November 2018 – May 2019

Industrial Design Engineer (Contract)

Hamrock is a company that manufactures other companies customized products. We also help them design or redesign their product for manufacturing. My function was under the general direction of the engineering manager, to help with the design and redesign of products from clients so it could be manufactured in house. I used SolidWorks to accomplish this goals. In consultation with the customer I worked with our manufacturing and fabricators to create the product as signed off by the customer

Mortech Manufacturing. December 2016–October 2018

Mechanical Design Engineer (Laid off)

Mortech Manufacturing is a manufacturer of Morgue and Medical industry equipment and instruments. Went back to help with their new walk-in refrigeration units. I also helped set up the standard units and some of the customized sizes. I also worked on projects we needed to catch up on and help bring then up to date. I used SolidWorks 2018 for the design work.

Mortech Manufacturing. January 2010–February 2011

Mechanical Design Engineer (Contract)

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 and see how it could work with our products.

Aero Seating Technologies March 2011 to April 2016

Mechanical Design Engineer (Laid off)

AST manufactures customized luxury Aero Seats. Using SolidWorks and Made to Manage I help with the creation of new and redesigning of model aircraft seats. Sustaining engineering, Liaison to Manufacturing, Assembly, Production and Q.A. department. Worked our MRB as I filled in as a Manufacturing Engineer. Work with Planning department to make sure the BOMs were correct and the shop/ floor was working with the proper revision drawings. Works closely with research, project engineers, and technicians to meet our delivery dates.

Brown International March 2004–November 2009

Mechanical Design Engineer (relocation)

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. Another part of 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.

Vishay Transducers February 2001–March 2004

Mechanical Engineer (relocation)

Developed product concepts and designs per company product development procedures, using SolidWorks, and J.D. Edwards. Products like the Hermetically Sealed Load Cells, Button Load Cells, Tank Weighing Systems, the compression and Tension Load Cells, and the I Beam; investigated Load Cells failures, come up with solutions and corrective actions for the faulty Load Cells; provided all design changes for existing products, ensured proper documentation of changes. Engineering change orders and documented control methods, as well as supervise the work going to these departments; attended C.C.B. meetings and made sure all departments signed off on all the changes that had been made. As a liaison to other departments, I conferred with Application Engineer, Sales, Planning, Production, Quality Assurance and Manufacturing as well as outside vendors to resolve design problems related to dimensions, tolerances, and manufacturing on a regular bases.
