Employment History
Mechanical Engineering Manager 2/2009 to present
Enterprise Electronic Corporation
Enterprise, AL
Mechanical Engineering Manager Lead mechanical engineering team and efforts to improve designs and processes. Provided previously undetermined solutions using simulation software and advanced analytical skills. For the first time ever, accurately rated equipment using analytical techniques and experience. 弒ntroduced and implemented use of simulation technology into the design process. Eliminated nonfunctional designs and reduced prototype efforts. Experience proves that prototype costs reduced by 70% or more. 愛edesigned electronic package reducing size and weight by 60%. 弒mplemented proper use of CAD technology to allow manufacturing access to solid files during manufacturing and assembly. In the process of implementing product data management system to ensure proper communication of design intent to all from the start to the end of the project. 弒ntroduced techniques to reduce design and drafting efforts using the CAD software and standardization techniques. Effort from design to production drawings reduced by 50%. Lead redesign of product line to eliminate warranty issues and increase reliability. All new designs verified using simulation technology to ensure the products success. Resolved ongoing warranty issue with existing equipment. Applied finite element vibration and structural analysis to determine cause of system breakdown and failure. Structural and electro-mechanical redesign resolved the problem.
Technology Development Engineer 2006 - 2008
Nordson Corporation, Adhesive Systems
Johns Creek, GA
Researched and developed technologies for the Adhesive Dispensing division to be implemented in future product lines. Served as a consulting engineer to other groups within the company. Advised groups with engineering problems and provided solutions to equipment faults. These requests had evolved into simulation analysis prior to manufacturing. 感roduced a dispensing module that lasts 5 to 10 times longer than the standard design utilizing new technology and implementing into existing product lines that operate in extreme conditions. 弒nvented design to allow for successful pioneering implementation of the above technology into module. 嵩reated and developed design for a high speed dispensing valve that exceeded speed requirements by 20% and successfully beat the competition expectations and timeframes. 惹olved ongoing 15 year warranty issue with snap-together plastic items resulting in the successful implementation into all product lines. 愛esolved field issues and customer complaints by innovating methodology to perform a fluid-structural interactive finite element analysis. 幌xceeded customer expectations for better control of heater temperature through creation of a design technique utilizing FEA and lab testing. Successfully implemented changes into the customers product line.
Systems Engineer, Fiber Systems 2000 - 2006
Nordson Corporation
Dawsonville, GA
Designed components for the structural section of the machine and managed all aspects of each project.
