Operated a Rotational Molding Machine which formed powdered plastic into molds for dock floats. Weighed and measured materials to meet proper specifications including color, weight, and density. Filled the plastic shells to capacity with foam beads brought in through a hopper. Operated a press which maintained the shape of the molds while using hoses which produced steam to melt and expand the foam beads into Styrofoam within the mold, ensuring that the pressure inside the shell never exceeded it's designated PSI. Melted caps onto the holes of the mold which were used as entry points for the Styrofoam beads and steam hoses. Made sure that the finished product was up to standards and that there were no defects including checking for holes, inspecting seals, shaving any excess plastic material and applying labels with a torch. Operated a Forklift to carry pallets of finished dock floats, as well as to change the molds on the Rotational Machine when necessary.
Manufactured a variety of water filtration systems to meet specifications determined by the results of a water quality analysis. Factors include but are not limited to: type of water impurities found and concentration of those impurities, number of people in the home or business, normal water usage, peak water usage, and customer's desired application. Installed and maintained both residential and commercial water filtration systems as well as provided custom filtration solutions when necessary. In home and phone sales and customer service. Worked with a team in the development of sales and marketing materials by creating pitches and material content as well as proofreading and editing, with the development of training materials, and with the creation, development, and maintenance of websites including writing webpage content across all of our brands. I was offered a Regional Training Manager Position before leaving the company full time. I still currently help with websites, marketing materials, editing, and sales part time when I am needed.
Operate Extrusion Machine to create a variety of rolls of Styrofoam sheet to meet specification guidelines. This includes but is not limited to: quality checks to ensure sheet has proper gauge, basis weight, appearance, color, and cell count. If necessary, make proper adjustments to ensure sheet is within specifications such as: Co2 adjustments to control gauge when Pentane percentage is already at set limit and there are no appearance issues created by talc percentage, reclaim to virgin bead ratio, or die temperatures, speed or slow the s-wrap ft/min to adjust the sheet basis weight, and winder adjustments to correct minor roll telescoping or prevent the sheet from wrinkling and/or popping off. Determine whether of not a die adjustment needs to be made to correct any major telescoping or specification issues by calculating the basis weight for each of the corresponding 4 sections on both of the sheets, and notify an approved operator to make these adjustments. Maintain the extrusion machine by ensuring it always has talc, screens are changed at regular intervals, and if necessary, manually fill water tanks to prevent high temperatures or overheating. Diagnose potential problems before they happen and ensure that proper action is taken to prevent the problem before it occurs to keep the line running if possible. Help to maintain any open lines around my line.
I am currently enrolled in Georgia Perimeter College though I have not taken any courses recently as I have not had the means necessary to finish my degree as of yet. It is my desire to finish my education once I become financially stable enough to do so. As a full time employee of your company, I plan on finishing my Associates Degree online as to not interfere with my varied work schedule.
