This week is National Engineers Week. Engineers create new possibilities every day by working together to develop new technologies, products, and opportunities that change the way we live.
At Bradbury Group, we appreciate engineers have a vital role in creating innovative solutions to global challenges and our business. As this year’s theme is Reimagining the possible, we asked Will Jones, our Design Engineer, how he is creating new possibilities for the Bradbury Group.
William Jones – Design Engineer
Throughout the day I look at processing customer orders. This can require altering parts, updating our master design models or producing new components in the aim of making manufacturing more efficient, while satisfying customer demands. In addition to this, I look at creating new products which can be added to the company’s product portfolio.
Since childhood, I have assembled models or built furniture. In more recent years, I have developed a desire to create something completely new and learn how to design & bring together individual components. To learn the skills needed to produce my own new designs, I started to study design and engineering, which has brought me to Bradbury Group.
When a new part is produced and fits together perfectly on the door; this is a really satisfying feeling.
I enjoy fitness and training including competing against family members.
Some of my projects include creating new products. This has the potential to become a finished product that we can offer to our customers, or it may improve production by reducing material waste & manufacturing times and improving overall finish quality.
A new project I am involved in is the automation of the product design stage in the engineering department. This will allow us to output a greater number of orders per day with an increased level of consistency across all products.
The most challenging has been 3D modelling and preparing for a specific set of hardware supplied by a customer, working within specific boundaries to make sure all produced components are accurate and set up correctly. It has definitely taken more time than initially predicted.
Thank you for giving us an insight into the engineering team Will!
