Some recent projects:
Design of thermoplastic processing machinery
Designed and specified equipment to manufacture continuous
fiber tailored blanks, consolidate the blanks and thermoform/mold
the blanks into a finished shape. Equipment consisted of an automated
lay up machine, a heated and cooled press for blank consolidation
and a blank heating oven and press for forming.
Developed solution for modifications on an existing winding
Worked with a client to refurbish and extend the length of an existing
winding machine. Designed the extension and made drawings for required
parts. Worked with the client's machine shop to fabricate the required
components. Worked with the client to install and checkout the finished
parts. Worked with the client to install required electrical and
Technical Feasibility Study
Performed an initial Phase I study to determine the technical feasibility
of a new concept for filament winding. Continued into a more in
depth Phase II study with a preliminary design for the composite
product and then developed conceptual solutions for several technical
and logistical problems identified in the Phase I study.
Designed tracking unit for existing fiber creel
Worked with a client to add a carriage tracking unit to his existing
fiber creel for use on his filament winding machine. Designed and
made drawings for the new tracking unit. Worked with the client
to have the new unit fabricated by a local contractor. Helped client
install and checkout the new tracking creel unit.
Control system recommendations
Performed an analysis of a client's existing machine control system.
Made recommendations for changes to improve machine performance.
