Plastic Shopping Carts
Led a team of engineers to design a set of all-plastic injection molded shopping carts. In addition to being attractive and full of unique features, the carts are nearly indestructible. Watching one of them undergo a 1600 lb overload test will permanently banish the term "cheap plastic" from your vocabulary. The carts are currently being sold nationwide.
Engineered a unique conference room table that includes power and data hubs in retractable pods, a touch-screen control panel in a hidden pocket, light pipe status indicators, and pivoting table surface wings. This table will be on the market in late 2017.
Deciphered and improved a revolutionary padlock design that wasn't functioning properly and wasn't ready for mass production. After meticulous refinement and adjustment, it was successfully put into production by my customer and sold widely in the USA.
Clean Room Enclosure
Led a group of engineers and mechanical designers to create a large appliance-style enclosure for a mass spectrometer for use in a clean room during the manufacture of silicon wafers. It included specialty seals, safety interlocks, earthquake-resistant attachment points, an air curtain, and a vibration isolation system.
