Level 3 (class A) Machinist
I have nearly 10 years of extensive experience running a wide variety of CNC and manual machines, thanks in large part to working for one of the largest bronze manufactures in the country, and one of the largest medical device manufacturers in the world. I have extensive set-up, re-programming, process development, and troubleshooting experience on Mori Seiki, Hardinge, and Miyano ABX lathes, Citizen B and L series Swiss machines, and Nakamura-Tome 5 axis mill-turn machines. I also have experience running Lico LNT series 5-axis turning and milling machines, along with various CNC mills, Sodick Sinkers, and Sodick EDM Wire machines. Manual machines I have set-up and run experience on are Romi and Hardinge lathes, Fischer groovers, Sunnen Precision Honing Machines, and Bridgeport manual drill/mills. I have spent over 8 years almost exclusively setting up and running short-order jobs, prototype and sample parts, along with performing set-ups and programming other larger-quantity jobs for other employees to run. Along with this, I also have experience with various measuring devices and software programs including Brown & Sharpe and Zeiss CMMs, AS-400 Program Manager, Symantec Procomm Plus, and some experience using Solidworks. My training also includes 9+ years of experience with differnt styles of Fanuc controls. I have the ability to work directly off of blueprints, from writing a program for a part and setting up the machine, to prototyping and into whole scale production, along with troubleshooting any problems that may arise. In addition, I have been through many classes and courses while working at rms Comapny to improve and expand on my skills, including various GD&T and lean manufacturing classes.

I have extensive experience in several departments of the company, and my training allowed me to achieve a level 3 (or class A) machinist designation on lathes, swiss, and mill-turn machines.
