Mechanical. Inertial Transference and Displacement Specialty. Kind of a niche thing. I design machines and machining systems to produce a given product where multiple tools on a single machine are being used at the same time to create a finished product. The "trick" is timing the tooling and their functions, feed-rates, gearing-systems, etc being used to get in, perform their function  and stay out of the way or get out of the way of the other functions going on. Instead of making a product one function at a time, and then on to the next, being able to use simultaneous functions reduces the cost tremendously. A typical "widget" (plumbing-part, brake-line connector, medical- part, auto-part, what-have-you) might take ten or fifteen minutes or more to make using single-function machines. A well-designed multi-function machine can shave that time down to ten or fifteen seconds per piece.

 

Actually it's relatively old-school technology. The same functions can be done on a more modern CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) machine, however that's typically either single-function or  consecutive-function and actually takes longer than the older mechanical machines. Any savings with the CNC machines is found in that they can run all day and night in a dark shop almost unattended. Or for very short runs of parts, maybe only a few hundred or so, and then more easily changed-over to make a new part with just a different program. Also actually very few typical machinists' skills are required. A relatively unskilled operator can just enter a program that's provided.

 

Building and setting up a dedicated machine is more expensive than changing a program, however once the machine is set up properly with the correct tooling and timing, that machine can run literally millions of parts much much faster than a CNC machine. Not to mention CNC machines are typically built less durable and only last a few years before they're basically expensive scrap metal. I've redesigned systems for older machines that once produced 30-caliber bullets and tank turrets for World War II into machines that now make sophisticated medical-devices and electronic components.

 

Interesting, sort of I guess... But not like picking up an old Gibson and playing a Blind Blake tune! LOL!!!

Hey, butt drawings/paintings aren't responsible for cheating, chess-playing robits okay. 

 

 

Edit: Petty was not the right word to use, but I couldn't think of the right one so you get 'cheating' instead.

Fuck, I guess I just took the time to edit a post in the fucking spam thread. To what, save space? Dumb.

Still more likeable than most I bet. You're the guy! The guy with the thing what is chill etc. 

 

If you ever want someone to talk for 10 minutes about some shit you don't care about, ask them about their job..

Word. I've also heard that asking questions with a number for an answer will make it seem like you're engaged in the boring conversation. How long have you worked that job? What kind of hours do they have you working? What kinda salary are we talking here? How many cameras are in that building? What are the closing hours? What is the safe combination etc.
