Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

He was involved with a lot of automatic loaders in a 4" length range and thought it could also be done with 8" long parts.

He remembered a work rest his father had bought at an auction years before and fitted it to a Cincinnati om center less grinder and designed a loader around this and it was very successful in loading and unloading steel shafts with multiple steps and forms without an operator.

He's also designed a pressure roll that is very user friendly and versatile and Can work with computer controls or manual.


design for manufacturability

Since the late 8o's when he was first introduced to computer controls operations that were time consuming and costly he quickly saw the benefit and started to convert more machines with computer controls.

He cannot see how any manufacturing can compete in today's highly competitive environment without computer integrated equipment and stay in business.


computer integrated manufacturing

Automation is always beneficial when you want to hold production costs down and bring quality and quantity up. Obviously it is not easy with centerless since the trade is always been one operator per machine.

He was working for a company that had no automation whatsoever and they had the workload so he started to come up with a loader design to finish some dowel pins that were 3/8 in dia. and had a shallow angle on each end. This was so successful that today, operators can run multiple machines.

There were only four of them running this department and there was always 7 or more machines running parts non-stop.

Proper maintenance planning consists of knowing which areas are needed for proper performance. For instance, if a chain on a machine has reached its' stretch limit, instead of taking out links to decrease tension on the spindle, replace as this will prevent sprockets and slides from wearing prematurely as well as machine down-time.

Lubricate and oil all applicable areas to ensure optimum performance.

Manufacturing technology consists of the latest automated and computer controlled devices. Must integrate this technology whenever possible to reduce cost and increase production.

He possesses an intuitive ability to determine the causes of machine malfunction or job related problems.

An ounce of cure is worth a pound of prevention. He cannot stress enough the importance of keeping critical components of any type machine, clean and working properly to maintain the highest quality and productivity levels to keep predetermined production goals and process standards intact.

preventive maintenance

He is always seeking a faster and better way to increase cycle times and to decrease the number of operations needed to manufacture a part. He has the ability to see five to six operations down the line and to incorporate ideas and design fixtures to accomplish set goal.

product development cycle time

He has many years experience in expediting customers' scheduled work orders tailored to coincide with existing set ups on machines where set up time is minimal and the work flow is optimal.

production control


production schedule

He possesses a strong insight to read a blue-print and determine tooling and the amount of operations necessary to provide an actual estimation of both time to do the job and the cost of tooling within that job. He was in business for many years with his father, where his experience has lead him to provide remarkable accuracy.

production cost

Quality control first and foremost consists of having a first piece inspection and properly assigning the right job to the right machine. Secondly, to maintain this quality and to inspect parts properly, it is necessary to oversee quality without production down-time. It is important therefore, to ensure that each operator has his/her own quality equipment at each workstation. He has implemented such procedures in the past for many, and has proven to be very cost effective. All inspection equipment must be qualified at predetermined time periods.

quality control



He has taken on many consulting positions which consisted of technical training as well as teaching. Some of these tasks include: damage control, repair, set-up, implement proper procedures, wheel selection, proper diamonds, design blades cams, stops, diagnose, adjust, inspect spindles, dressers, and all related servicing to customers' needs.
