I am an Electrical and Controls Engineer working in the Chemical Industry
I live in Bedfordshire and have various hobbies such as 3D printing and cycling. I have done a few charity bike rides, one from John O Groats to Milton Keynes.
I control and maintain robots that make components for cars.
I mainly program robots to complete mundane tasks that are repetitive. These put unnecessary strain on human operators, and the robots can complete them much more efficiently. The programming is done on a computer, which has simulation software, then transferred to the robot.
My Typical Day: My day starts at 8am, I will check on all the robots individually and react to any breakdowns or failures. I then work on any current projects and plan with the projects teams for the programming design and implementation.
