Senior Field Engineer Developed procedures for product improvement for R&D or customers to handle nois e and vibrations related to bearings, machine condition and torsional speed vari ations using measuring devices on rotating machinery, drives and motors. Used FF Ts, time signals, enveloping, filtering, base-lining and complete state-of-the-a rt vibration analysis software for engineering review and customer problem solvi ng. Company specialist for setup, testing, development, commissioning and traini ng on GOSS Auto Plate Auto Transfer Systems on various press types. Created proc edures for testing automatic washing systems for pollution control and LFL limit s on large printing dryers using FID analyzers. Knowledge of WPC, Quad Tech, GMI , Contiweb, Butler, Baldwin, Elettra, Oxy-Dry, Siemens drives and PLCs vendor sy stems. Global satisfied customers include RRD, Quad Graphics, Brown Printing, Tr end Offset, Quebcor and print shops. Achievements: * To better understand motor bearings failure after a couple of months operation on $30K AC drive motors purchased from Siemens, implemented procedure using vib ration analysis to check for bearing defects right out of the box, check for mot or alignment to the machine and proper tuning of each machine. Use of this proce dure reduce failures by 50% and resulted in a collaborative study between Goss a nd Siemens prompting design changes resulting in failure rate becoming a rarity. * After a value engineering change to a $5K crank shaft inside a printing unit, shafts scattered worldwide began to fail. First replacement took 2 men 10 hours and resulted in dissatisfied customers. Developed a simple tool and procedure to reduce installation time by 50% and trained mechanics to change part under warr anty without the need for an engineer on site.

* While conducting a 10-year-old procedure for explosion testing on a large indu strial dryer, realized that data collection method on strip chart recorder was e xtremely outdated, and while adequate for insurance purposes but very difficult to share among engineers. After denial of request for digital recorders, experim ented with controllers in place and wrote a program to record the data and outpu t to laptop computer for future use by senior engineers to correct problem in re cord time.
