Areas of Expertise:

Heat Treat Brazing Corrosion Mitigation
Coatings Shot Peen Special Process Audits

• Performed Source Approval evaluation and Substantiation of power shaft P/N 2-141-340-03 for
Honeywell electron beam weld vendor Middleton Aerospace. Used metallography to determine
conformance to AMS2680. Implemented a shorter pump down cycle to improve productivity by
50%. Reduced weld porosity by reducing weld traverse speed, which allows more time for
gases to escape the molten pool, reducing scrap by 65%.

• Performed Special Process audit of Bennett Heat Treat, a Honeywell supplier of brazed diffuser
assemblies. The brazed diffuser assembly had been exposed to excessive time and temperature
in the braze cycle, resulting in braze erosion. To mitigate braze erosion, I implemented a shorter
and cooler braze cycle and used tooling with reduced thermal mass. Productivity increased

• Resolved braze cracking issue at Ace Precision in the Combustor Liner Assembly, P/N 2-131-
110-63. Prior to this design change, the part cracked in the solidified braze filler metal due to
thermal stresses. The “pie pan” concept was implemented which allowed a more robust design
with more mass to reduce thermal stress. The crack issue was resolved, the Combustor Liner
Assembly was substantiated , and went into production saving Honeywell approximately
$150,000 annually.

• Provided Honeywell-Mora in the Czech Republic with the technical expertise to qualify for
effusion (laser drilling on the fly) hole drilling of combustors to enhance cooling and increase
service life of combustors. Used metallography to determine hole size, alignment, and remelt
layer thickness to insure conformance to PNCP52574. This allowed us to reduce manufacturing
costs without compromising part integrity. Annual savings of $325,000 were achieved.

Professional Experience:
Principal Materials Engineer, Orbital Sciences Corp, Chandler AZ, 2009
• Performed audits of orbital welds (GTAW) used in Attitude Control System of ground based
missile and launch vehicles. Performed assessments of launch vehicle components to identify
and mitigate corrosion by intergranular attack, stress corrosion cracking, and galvanic couples.
Developed course and test materials for Weld Certification of 28 design engineers, given
Senior Materials Engineer, Honeywell, Phoenix AZ, 1998-2009
• Performed process approval and substantiation of welded and brazed components (diffusers,
nozzles, combustors, curl assemblies) for Honeywell-Mora (Czech Republic) and Honeywell-
Chihuahua. Processes transferred include brazing, laser hole drilling, electro-discharge
machining, orbital welding, automated and manual GTAW, RSW, electron beam, laser, and
inertia welding.
Metallurgical Engineer, IMC Magnetics, Tempe AZ, 1993-1998
• Copper furnace brazing per AMS2670, GTAW, and heat treat of magnetic Fe materials in
Supervisor of the Metallurgical Lab, Chromalloy (Jet Services West), El Cajon CA, 1990-1992.
• Prepare and evaluate metallurgical specimens. Pratt and Whitney LCS reporting to Mark
Crevier. Created parameters for brazing, welding, EDM, ECM, RSEW, RSW, heat treat, and
plasma spray.
