National Engineers Week 2020

By February 17, 2020 March 4th, 2020 No Comments

Engineers are dynamic drivers for positive change and advancement, especially in the manufacturing sector. At TechSolve, we see this every day. The ingenuity of TechSolve’s engineers is fueled by a true philanthropic spirit to improve the manufacturing process for Southwest Ohio manufacturers and beyond.

TechSolve Engineer Spotlight

TechSolve is lucky to have these men and women and greatly appreciates their expertise. To celebrate National Engineers Week (Feb. 16 – 22, 2020), TechSolve highlights its talented engineers and why they selected their profession.

Q: What attracted you to the engineering profession?
A: As a child and admittedly still to this day, I have always been infatuated with aircraft or anything that flies.  In middle school, I learned that aerospace engineering is the profession that designs and tests aircraft.  Later in high school, I learned that math and science were the key subjects needed to study engineering in college.  Since those were the subjects that I enjoyed and excelled in, it seemed the path was clear and I would pursue a degree in aerospace engineering.  Much later, I understood and took pride in how engineers use math and Scientific first principals to solve problems.  Solutions to problems that improve society as a whole.  I’m the person that still looks up when I hear an airplane passing by overhead.

Q: What advancements in manufacturing are you most excited about for the future?
A: I believe that inspection technology at our fingertips is coming soon.  If our mobile phones can measure objects accurately and help create solid models of those objects, manufacturing technology will advance into a consumer age where build-boxes will be in every home permitting us to build replacement parts for ourselves or make anything else we can imagine.  5G communication and beyond will permit easy data feedback for a wondrous amount of useful information.  I already get feedback on my cell phone regarding the condition of my automobiles, how I slept the prior night, details about exercise and other aspects of my life.  More useful information is on the way!

Q: What attracted you to the engineering profession?
A: What attracted me to engineering is my dad.  He was an engineer, my uncles were engineers, and my grandfather was an engineer.  They were problem solvers and it was what I enjoyed most to do.  Plus, my dad was so gung-ho about me following in his footsteps.  He thought it would be a great opportunity and never looked at it as just a “man’s” world.

Q: What advancements in manufacturing are you most excited about for the future? 
A: While I find advancements in robotics, IIOT, Additive and AR very exciting and interesting, I’m into advancements in conventional machining technology, CAD/CAM, machine tools, and new materials. One particular advancement that I would like to see in the future for manufacturers (especially in the Aerospace and medical fields) is in the area of engineered surface integrity. Machining the surface of a part has a significant effect on surface finish, ductility, and residual stress, all affecting the lifecycle of a part. All this works hand in hand with cutting tool parameters like feeds, speeds, cutting tool geometry, and lubrication. This, in addition to being able to predict and optimize tool life and performance, could lead to real advancements in the performance and reliability of flight hardware, cost, and overall quality.

Q: What attracted you to the engineering profession?
A: My family growing up never contracted maintenance or construction for anything, so I learned at a young age how to build and fix.  I found that I enjoyed the process of designing items or repairs.  After the service, I went to college and found a degree that taught me even more about all aspects of manufacturing and production, now I get to design and make things for a living.

Q: What attracted you to the engineering profession?
A: I like and have always liked, building things and solving problems and engineering contains both of those activities. Plus, I hate the heat so digging up dinosaur bones in the desert became unattainable much to the disappointment of my younger self.

Q: Why do you like being an engineer at TechSolve?
A: The variety of work that we do. Manufacturing in the U.S. is extremely vast and diverse.  We get to solve problems, find answers, and help the manufacturing community improve. While doing this we get to use various forms of technology, processes, and tools to find a solution for customers. This allows us to be innovative and continually broaden our knowledge as engineers.
