Architectural Studies, Vincennes University
I started out working as more of a design drafter for several years and after some time obtained an engineering position that utilized my knowledge of sheet metal, plastics, mechanics, machining and other skills. I have worked on all types of machinery and I believe that it is my mechanical aptitude that led me to Hurco to be working in the area that I am today.
First, I touch base with my manager to see if anything is pressing and addressing items he has assigned. Then it's off to the projects, which can consist of a wide variety of activities such as documentation, design, testing of specific areas/mechanics of a machine, machine setup, machine project management, correspondence with various HML/vendors/customers, et cetera.
The portion of my job I like the most is diversity of projects that may be requested. For example, at one moment I may be sitting at my desk working on machine documentation and the next I may be out on the production floor monitoring cutting tests.
