** Domestic Automotive Manufacturer - Gray Iron Casting Plant – Work closely with Cleaning Room Maintenance Planning Specialists and general foremen to assist in maintaining numerous shot blast machines currently in use, which are critical in the proper cleaning of the 6.8L, 5.4L, 4,6L, and 3.0L cast iron engine blocks prior to machining and final assembly. Coordinate with maintenance supervisors to provide improved customer-specific components, achieving increases in part life, reduced machine down-time, and increased overall part productivity.
** International Heavy Equipment Manufacturer - Component Assembly Plant – Developed, in cooperation with customer’s engineering dept., various styles of lifting devices for use in final component engine assembly of the Caterpillar #3126 2-valve, #3126 3-valve, and #C-9 diesel engines. This was a direct result of Steel Strategies being contacted by the customer to address a critical safety issue with the older style lifting devices previously in use. The outcome was a safer lifting device for both line workers and finished components.
** Japanese Automotive Manufacturer - Component Casting Plant - Work closely with Ferrous Casting Department (cleaning room / sand plant) to maintain and repair shot blast equipment, disk and drum deburr equipment, incorporating small parts precision machining and heat treatment of required parts for increased part service life. Assisted in the development of a maintenance repair program for the rebuilding vs. new replacement of casting deburr equipment, increasing the time between required repairs from 6 months to 3 years, at a savings of approximately $88,000.00 over a 4 year period.
