Dale is a highly flexible engineer who learns quickly. He is at home in a multi-disciplinary team environment. Industrious and independent, with good attention to detail, Dale enjoys a challenge. His previous position at Cavotec MoorMaster, saw him involved in structural design, calculations, and FEA for a number of new designs and updates to existing machines, along with designing hydraulic services and components.
I enjoy engineering due to the varied, challenging and rewarding work I get to do. I love tackling and solving new problems, and learning and developing my skills along the way. I am particularly experienced in product design, design for manufacture and assembly, sheet metal and fabrication design, and FE analysis including detailed fatigue analysis. I have set up new production lines, project managed new product development, and led the mechanical design of a world-first product. In addition to this I am strongly interested in automation, renewable energy and associated technologies, advanced manufacturing, materials engineering, and composites.
