Experienced Professional Plastics Engineer - Product Design / Tool Engineering / Management
I have 30 plus years in thin gauge thermoforming in all faucets of Product design, Prototype design, Rapid Prototype 3-D printing, Prototype tooling, Production tooling, and programming my own work then producing tooling and cavities on CNC equipment. I have been involved with Process Engineering and DOE’s to run at optimal thermoforming and manufacturing conditions. Equipment include: Brown, Lyle, Kirkhof, Sencorp, Illig, and Kiefel machines. Materials include: OPS, PS, APET, RPET, CPET, PP, PP (EVOH) multi-layer barrier, HDPE, PE, PVC, Foam, and several different variations of "Green" environmentally safe (corn based) materials.
I try to approach every project as being that next "Major Accomplishment". I am very much TEAM oriented so if we "Hit One Out Of The Park" it is an accomplishment for the Team and department not one individual.
