* Amalgamated my expertise with PVC extrusion and rubber mixing to give seminars on how to make a medical product using a continuous mixer without batch to batch variance.
* Installing automatic feed pumps to replenish plating solutions controlled by the electricity used in a plating bath. Prior to that baths were run and sampled periodically & renewed to a set level.
* Designed a continuous rubber processing system based on my PVC experience. The major issue was how to feed rubber which came in a 44-pound bale into an extruder.
* Designed a robotic arm drum unloader to lift and eject a 100-pound cylinder of rubber from a fiber drum. Prior to my system, the cylinder of rubber was dumped in its liner and sliced with a knife causing several serious bleeding incidents.
