Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert is a specialist in composite materials and processes. He is also an author of several books that focus on the use of composite materials for the fabrication of master models, patterns, molds, tools, and accessories. He notes that this is the basis for the development of composite materials, as moldability is the first step in the conversion of materials into a product. Every product that is designed or developed requires a complete understanding of the characteristics of the material's moldability and performance, the mold and tooling choices and manufacturing process selection before the product development process begins. He has more than four decades of experience in all of these areas.

Expert has been developing technologies and subsequently arising businesses for over 35 years. His experience in materials and product development and manufacturing usually lead to the development of a business and business marketing approaches for his clients.

Expert is knowledgeable of the most advanced state of the art in cost-effective molding of composite materials is the use of preforms for various vacuum assisted molding techniques such as: RLI (Resin Liquid Infusion); RFI (Resin Film Infusion [a technology described in his book]); VARTM (Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding); CRTM (Continuous Resin Transfer Molding [also used in the continuous pultrusion process]); RARTM (Rubber Assisted Resin Transfer Molding [thermal expansion of trapped rubber within the closed injection mold cavity]); UVRTM (Ultraviolet energy cured Resin Transfer Molding); SCRIMP (Seeman Composites Company Resin Injection Molding Process [a patented and licensable resin injection molding process]); ARTM (Advanced Resin Transfer Molding [used in the manufacture of advanced composite jet aircraft components and structures]); VIP (Vacuum Infusion Process), and VIMP (Variable Infusion Molding Process). He is a specialist in these areas and plans to feature the mold making related technologies in the Third Edition of his book “Advanced Composite Mold Making.”

Expert is a leader in the development of transportation technologies, not only in composite materials and processes for automobiles, busses, trucks, trains, and related sectors but also in the demonstration of magnetic levitation (MAGLEV). He has over 25 years of experience in the selection and application of materials in the high-energy physics community, the manufacturing of superconducting magnets used in the medical MRI industry, plus superconducting magnets for MAGLEV "trains," and is a co-inventor in this technology area.
