This task for Maury Microwave started out relatively small, with the request for a design change of their existing tuner. The project quickly expanded to a full redesign, involving better actuators using closed loop stepper motors, introduction of linear drives and a structural redesign to reduce assembly tolerance stackup.
- Design & detailing for manufacture of the entire assembly
- Scheduling design, procurement and testing activities
- Establishing vendor relationships for new components
- Identifying and coming up with remedies for problems in procurement and QA cycles.
