The team at Align Production Systems would like to wish all our customers and suppliers a happy holiday season. To celebrate the holidays this year, the Align Production Systems team headed over to Painting with a Twist, an art studio where the studio artists guided our team step-by-step as they attempted to create a holiday masterpiece.

 

After concluding the painting session, several of our team members were tasked with choosing the best and worst painting of the evening. The team at Align Production Systems learned a valuable lesson that none of us should quit our day jobs to pursue a career in art.

 

Following the festivities of the evening before, our team headed to NILO Farms the next afternoon to participate in our annual Duck Hunt & Sporting Clays Competition. Following suit from last year’s sporting clays contest, Jeff Goudy from our engineering team claimed the victory with an impressive 80/100 score for the day.

It has been as great adventure over the last 13 years as the owner of Align Production Systems and Airfloat, designing and building serious heavy-duty solutions for heavy industry.

The industrial turntable behind me in our fabrication department, is an example of what we can do to support our customers around the world. This 80,000 lbs. giant table is slated to ship to Italy next month, and it will be handling a 300,000 lbs. load rotating at 0.5 RPM non-stop for years to come.

Align has an amazing team of sales engineers, designers, fabricators, and assembly technicians that build these types of solutions over the last 50 years. Our vision is to provide solution-based systems that lead our industrial customers and partners into a safe and sustainable future.

We do so through:

• quality people
• quality products
• quality partnerships
• determined innovation

I want to thank our customers, suppliers, partners, and team for the hard work and opportunity we are provided each and every day.

– Jason Stoecker, President

Our old St. Louis office will hold many memories for the Align team, but we’ve outgrown the space over the past few years as we continue to expand our engineering and sales team. Our new facility will give our team the space and infrastructure we need to continue to grow and engineer quality material handling and industrial automation equipment.

Our new office is located at 9375 Dielman Industrial CT in St. Louis.

HAPPY 30 YEARS AT ALIGN, RON! http://www.alignproductionsystems.com/happy-30-years-align-ron/ http://www.alignproductionsystems.com/happy-30-years-align-ron/#respond Tue, 15 Aug 2017 16:30:39 +0000 http://www.alignproductionsystems.com/?p=1722 Ron Born, a design engineer in our Decatur Office, has been with Align Production Systems for 30 years.

The post HAPPY 30 YEARS AT ALIGN, RON! appeared first on Align Production Systems.

]]>


Ron Born, a design engineer in our Decatur Office, has been with Align Production Systems for 30 years. We’re lucky to have him and happy to announce his partial retirement. Congratulations, Ron!

We sat down with Ron to hear about his experience in the field and hopefully gain some of his wisdom:

Q: How were things different when you first started working in this field?

A: “When I first started as a design engineer, there were no computers, which made for a much more hands-on, time-intensive process. All our project drafts were sketched on paper and every calculation had to be done by hand.

All communications with our clients were done by snail mail, including initial drafts, the subsequent edits, and any custom requests from the client. This made for a lengthy process from start to finish.

All this changed about five years later, with the introduction of the AutoCAD, a software on which our engineers still design their projects today. This changed everything, as we were now able to design, calculate, and make edits automatically, saving a lot of time.
Around the same time, email was introduced, which completely changed the workflow and our customer communication process for the better.”

Q: What have been some of your most memorable jobs?

A: “I’ll always remember my very first job. It was with Griffith MicroScience – today is known as Sterigenics International. We were tasked with making something to transport and load medical equipment into an autoclave for sterilization and went with a transporter. Over the years, I’ve worked on more transporters than I could ever remember, but I’ll never forget my first project.

Another memorable job I worked on was a collaboration with AeroJet to make position booster equipment for NASA. Working with such a high-stakes client really piles on the pressure, but the end result is even sweeter knowing you helped such an important client achieve their goals.”

Q: What are your favorite aspects of being a design engineer?

A: “Something that makes design engineering at Align so exciting is the variability in the work. The breadth of projects I’ve worked on over the last 30 years is endless, from transporters, to pallets, to one-of-a-kind custom projects that I never thought were possible. The pace is changes every day, which has taught me to expect the unexpected and keeps me coming back.

It’s also been great to see the drastic improvements in the field over my lifetime. I can’t imagine what the next innovation will be, but I can imagine if you ask the younger engineers this same question 30 years from now, they’ll tell you the field is completely different from where they started.”
