Senior Manufacturing Engineer – Injection Molding
As a Senior Manufacturing Engineer for injection molding projects, Derek ensures that customers’ injection molding designs meet all manufacturability requirements and that projects progress smoothly through the T1 sample review/approval stage and into production. Derek is particularly knowledgeable when it comes to the product development process, including material selection, DFM, validation requirements, DSAO, GD&T, and PPAP. Previously, Derek worked for over 10 years in product development within the commercial trucking industry, and has taken dozens of complex parts and assemblies from a napkin sketch through development, validation, and into full production. Outside of work, he enjoys going for long runs, bike rides with his wife and two kids, jamming out on drums and guitar with his friends, and cooking/grilling.
