Platforms, Guiderails, Guarding & more
Sole engineer in a sheet metal manufacturing environment. Design and engineering of access platforms and guiderails (designed to NZ standards), machinery guarding, custom lifting and handling equipment, and an upgrade of the drivetrain for ENI powdercoating oven.
Façade for the UC Electrical Link Building
Project management of one of ENI’s largest projects – the Façade for the Electrical Link Building at University of Canterbury. This was a very complex project due to the level of detail and customisation involved, that also required managing relationships and communicating with the clients, partner manufacturers, civil engineers, and the architect.
MM200E15 Product Development
Design and engineering for a number of new MoorMaster units (market-leading automated mooring machines), including the MM200E15 pictured. Structural design, calculations and FEA, design, and specification of hydraulic services and components.
MMWPT Product Development
Leading mechanical design for a world-first automated wireless charging system. Concept creation and validation, structural design and FEA, working with hydraulic and controls teams and collaboration with international partners .
Fully Automated Production Lines
Worked on two projects at Scott that involved design work for their fully automated production lines. These were long term projects that spanned the full design process from concept work through to detailed manufacturing drawings, procurement and supporting assembly work.
The work crossed multiple stations, including folders, punch/press stations, scanning vision systems, conveyors and manipulators. The projects involved a lot of detailed machine design, taking both an existing design and modifying it to make new parts as well as starting from scratch. This required a lot of automated pneumatic/hydraulic mechanism design, and well as heavy fabrication and sheet metal design and analysis.
2500+ Product Development & Project Management
Project management and leading mechanical design for a new 400Hz compact converter for the airport industry. Involved design of a sheet metal electrical enclosure focusing on design for assembly, assembly line layout and prototype build.
