AQUATEC

- Internship (2019)

During the summer of 2019 I worked in the engineering department of Aquatec California for four weeks. Aquatec is a world leading manufacturer of precision diaphragm pumps and related flow control components. They are one of the few remaining manufacturers producing everything in-house in Southern California, supplying original equipment manufacturer customers in over 30 countries. Applications include medical devices, automotive care and performance and solar water pumping.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time working with the team at Aquatec and gained valuable experience as well as a deeper knowledge into the manufacturing and engineering industry.

In my role as an intern I was tasked with the following:

  • 3D modelling and printing parts for an automated beer brewing system

  • Using AutoCAD to create a layout of the production line to help the reconfiguration of the manufacturing floor to move towards lean manufacturing techniques

  • Engineering troubleshooting of under-performing equipment 

  • Research and development of new prototype pumps seeking out potential new markets and applications

  • Filming and editing video content to improve the customer troubleshooting experience

Some of the work I completed is classified as proprietary material (e.g. labelled plant layout, CAD parts) therefore I am not able to show it in its entirety. A few examples of my work can be seen in the images above.
