Professional Experience

MedPlast

Manufacturing Engineer (2/16, current position)

Responsibilities

Develop processes and fixtures for medical device assembly and secondary processes from proof of concept to sustaining including adhesion, bonding, and PAD printing. Many components come from the MedPlast injection molding line. Support elsewhere as needed.

Accomplishments

TBD

Corpus Medical

Manufacturing Engineer (5/15 - 12/15, 7 months)

Responsibilities

Develop Manufacturing Processes. Design and implement fixtures, tools, and semi-automated equipment. Write test and process validation protocols. Set-up and maintain manufacturing lines. Manage resources and schedules

Accomplishments

Successfully sustained an Electrophysiology 3D Rotor Mapping solution catheter for finding arrhythmia in the heart. My responsibilities were on the device manufacture level and the device was produced at a volume of 50 per week, with about 16 operators building the device (8 hours of labor per device). Improved overall company wide systems.

 

Modified Polymer Components

Development Engineer (4/12 – 2/15, 3 years)

Responsibilities

Owned several medical device projects at a time, for various medical device customers, with various end uses, from concept to transfer. Responsible for entire project from: planning and designing, to making first 5 parts, developing and documenting process, troubleshooting, pFMEA’s, managing BOM’s, validation, and ultimately transferring.

Used Solid Works on a nearly daily bases to design dies, tooling, fixtures, ect. Beta tester for Solid Works EPDM implementation. Ensured tolerance stack up wasn't an issue between tooling and material. Frequently used PLC’s to control timing in the semi-automated manufacturing processes. Used machine shop to make fixtures and die’s. Suggested changes in design to customers to make parts more manufacturable.  Used Design Review process to implement feedback on making the process more manufacturable. Used customer requirements to implement inspection and testing procedures like pull/tensile test, bend test, and proof test. Used Minitab to show process capability (Cpk, Ppk), suggest tolerance intervals to customers, and analyze/run DOE results. Used multiple coatings like: Teflon, Magnaplate, Anodization, and Alodine. Some exposure to geometric tolerancing.

Accomplishments

ConXtech (Construction Company)

R & D Engineer, Detail Manager, IT (1/06 – 2/12, approx. 3 years engineering experience and 3 years IT)

Responsibilities

Lead Engineer for the electro-mechanical portion of projects. Managed and organized structural drawing standards. Maintained and improved ConXtech's IT infrastructure and desktop support.
