I began my career at Siemens Automation and Drives (Congleton) in 1993 in the packing department.
From there I progressed throughout the manufacturing process gaining experience in component preparation, pcb build, unit construction, test and then diagnosing and line repairs.
This ‘sparked’ my interest in electronics and working closely with the Technicians, I received specific knowledge and guidance in the area of electronic motion control.
From Siemens, I expanded my knowledge into industry by gaining a qualification in electronics and electrical engineering and focusing on repairs and site support with various industrial electronics repair companies.
Spanning a period in excess of 10 years repairing, diagnosing and supporting a variety of automation peripherals from inverters, to PLC’s to complete systems.
At this point, I was very conversant with system processing, repairs and commissioning tasks and looked at a more specialised area connected with motion control.
In 2008, I finally found my ‘niche’ at Kawasaki Robotics UK Ltd as the dedicated product trainer including service engineering and technical support.
Drawing on my previous experiences, I developed into a product specialist and found a new direction in training and presenting equipment capabilities including programming, technical support and service engineering works.
I would like to pass on my sincerest thanks to all at Kawasaki Robotics UK Ltd and continuing success for the future.
During my time at Kawasaki Robotics UK Ltd, I noticed there was a distinctive gap between OEM training and system integrator training which was nearly impossible to bridge.
I found drawing on my previous experiences as well as my personal interests, I could easily bridge this gap and be in position to provide product based training around integrated cell system environments accompanied by my product knowledge.
This is where I start my next chapter…………………
Getting to know me
Born in 1974 and currently reside in Cheshire (UK).
My passion really lies with passing on information so that it can benefit others.
Presently this is orientated around the Kawasaki robot family of products and the world of industrial robotics as a Moderator of the largest growing online industrial robotics communities at Robot Forum.
Futuristically, I aim to undertake training with other Robotic OEM’s to allow me to further assist with additional products currently this is including Fanuc and ABB.
Always looking at gaining knowledge, whether presented with a steep learning curve or progressive learning.
I welcome the challenges ahead with passion and determination to succeed.
Using my own Kawasaki Robot, I enjoy developing in other areas such as PLC, HMI, Arduino and 3D printing.
Expanding my knowledge and just simply can I bring an idea to reality.
I enjoy Formula 1 and have had the pleasure of attending races at Catalunya, Silverstone and Spa Francorchamps.
Camping and Formula 1 weekend…….I would recommend to anyone.
I play regular golf and back in the day attained a 6 handicap as I took it very serious but now enjoy golf on a social level playing to around (cough cough) 15 on good day.
