  2. 2. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Medical Projects Details: 2 main housing parts designed for Structural Foam, all simple open and shut tooling with no side draws etc. Carousel carriers (pucks) designed as a multi part ABS assembly ultrasonically assembled with moveable anchor/drive pin which couples to the belt lugs below the deck. Bulky under deck harnessing replaced with simple Printed Circuit Bds which held all “down plugable” connectors and sensors. Barcode readers were mounted below deck and utilized a fold mirror for reading of tubes and tray. (Project Management, Precision machined , Sheetmetal, Printed Circuit Bds, Plastic Molded Parts, Drives, Optics) J&J Blood Analyzer (Vitros 5,1) Sample Handler Module (SAHA) Scope : Design new Sample Handler Unit for the Vitros 5,1 product line. Needed to work with existing Test Tube Carousel, hold 15 plus 1 STAT position, register Carousel accurately in 3 positions without spilling/splashing, read Barcode on Tubes and Carousel in 2 positions, spill containment/easy clean-up, stand alone, field serviceable/replaceable module, FDA requirements. Results : “Vince designed and developed a Sample Processing Center for a clinical blood analyzer, a significant subsystem in an FDA-approved product that Johnson & Johnson released in 2005. His work was very thorough and he did early creative concept development, he developed the entire design database for production drawings and specifications, and he was involved in verification and validation efforts in support of commercialization and FDA approval. His comprehensive approach to the design challenge resulted in a Sample Processing Center that is very well received by customers, and has been in production since 2005, with no manufacturing problems. The design history file he helped create, has been audited by the FDA and they actually liked it. Vince was able to work very well with Process Engineers, Manufacturing Engineers, CAD designers and Design Engineers to deliver a successful design to commercialization, within tight schedule and budget constraints. ( Larry Barnes, Chief System Architect, Engineering Fellow)
  3. 3. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Medical Projects Details: With the requirement of having the parts made through the Silicone Rubber mold process, it was my goal to design each part for as simple of tooling as possible, i.e.. No side draws, inserts, hand pickouts etc. Of the over 20 separate plastic parts required to make the complete assembly, there was only (1) part that needed to have a side draw in the tooling, that was for the screw holes for mounting the friction hinges. The friction hinge was a double action with (2) different levels of friction; one to be able to hold the weight of the LCD/cover and the other able to support the opening of the keyboard. In the picture on the right you can see the smaller inside cover partially raised, that is where the keyboard would be mounted. Underneath is where the cord and wand were stored.(Project Management, Sheetmetal, Printed Circuit Bds, Plastic Molded Parts, Electronics, OEM modules) Scope : Design this portable piece of medical equipment using all OEM components. Needed to produce pre-production quantities using the silicone rubber mold process. There needed to be storage space for the power cord and the Programming Wand as they called it, which was the size of a large PC mouse and quite heavy (had a very large magnet inside). The unit also needed to be as small and light weight as possible, as most of the users were female nurses; it also needed to be able to withstand a rugged environment. Results : The customer was able to take the output from the ProE model files, have SLA (stereo-lithography) parts made and from that have the silicone rubber tooling made in a very short period of time; largely due to the simplicity of the part design. Parts all came together and fit first time out of the molds. The customer was able to take the model to shows and conduct field trials. Portable programming device for Pacemaker implants ( included everything in a Laptop plus 3.5 or CD Drive, Roll Printer, external memory slot)
  4. 4. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Military Projects Details: The LCD and Keyboard were used from an OEM commercial Laptop computer. The housing Top & Bottom were designed to be plastic injection molded parts They were both enclosed with sheetmetal covers. The (2) hinge blocks and covers were also plastic. All covers were gasketed with inlay o-ring. The top open position was locked into place via a knob mounted on a Tran-Torque. A multi-position prop support exists due to the LCD being top heavy.(Project management, Sheetmetal, Precision machined, Printed Circuit Bds, Plastic Molded Parts, Electronics, OEM modules) Scope : Design a rugged enclosure to house a LCD & Keyboard, with a detachable cable using Mil connectors that could stand on it’s own to be used, or mounted to the front of a rack mounted computer that would be in the back of a military jeep/truck.

Welding Fixture (for use in making Tiga rear suspension upright) Results : Fixture allowed for all tubes in assembly to be tacked into place, once enough weld is in place the part could be flipped over to gain access to opposite side. The final product is shown at the right. Tiga Rear Upright Weldment Tiga Rear Upright on Fixture
  10. 10. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Fixtures/Tools (cont.) Details: I managed and designed this product along with architecting the software and user interface. What were traditionally products built from all catalog items I came up with a standard form factor base which gave the product it’s own identity as well as function. The base is open in the rear which is where the custom Driver Box resides (which I also designed), which made for a much cleaner looking product and took up less real estate. The business portion of the fixture was made up of precision linear and rotational stages, quick change custom fixturing and pneumatics and controls which provided clamping pressures for the pneumatic Collets as well as providing inflation pressure. (Project & Personnel Management, precision machining, sheetmetal, pneumatics, cabling, styling, OEM components) Scope : Design a Fixture Product which will hold cylindrical objects and rotate them so that they may be scanned by single or multiple probes, ie. Tubing, Medical Balloons, Stents, Catheters. This is a precision non contact measurement system that can measure wall thickness, I.D., O.D. and coatings down to micron level. Results : This fixture was very well received by the medical manufacturing community and allowed measurement of critical medical components which couldn’t be accurately measured if at all previously. RoLSS Fixture (Rotational Linear Scanning System; Lumetrics Inc.)
  11. 11. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Fixtures/Tools (cont.) Details: I managed and designed this product along with architecting the software and user interface. What were traditionally products built from all catalog items I came up with a standard form factor base which gave the product it’s own identity as well as function (ref the RoLSS product). The base is open in the rear which is where the custom Driver Box resides (which I also designed), which made for a much cleaner looking product and took up less real estate. The business portion of the fixture was made up of precision linear stages. The stages could be controlled via software or the manual jog controls. (Project & Personnel Management, precision machining, sheetmetal, pneumatics, cabling, styling, OEM components) Scope : Design a Fixture Product which will hold flat objects so that they may be scanned by single probes, ie. Multi-layer films, Silicon Wafers. This is a precision non contact measurement system that can measure material thickness, layer thickness and coatings down to micron level. Results : This fixture was used by medical film manufactures in there labs where they could simulate the measurements on moving web applications.. X-Y Scanning Fixture (Lumetrics Inc.)
  12. 12. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Fixtures/Tools (cont.) Details: I found a set of crude plans in an old Hot Rod magazine, I laid it out/designed in AutoCad Inventor and generated all the detail drawings and parts lists. The cabinet is MDO board screwed and glued, the control panel is an aluminum plate with machined features, the aperture plate is made from steel sheetmetal and uses (8) open frame high flow vacuum motors, the unit runs on 220v, the manometer and pressure meters were made from scratch. In order to flow a specific cylinder head I had to make a specific adaptor (wood working, machining, sheetmetal, cabling/wiring, OEM components) Scope : With my many years of involvement with racing from Go Karts to racing cars in SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) road racing and building my own engines, it became necessary to have a Flow Bench to quantify as well as get the most performance out of them… as the cylinder head and it’s ability to flow is where most of the power gains come from. Results : was a very well functioning tool with very good repeatability and results on the race track. Cylinder Head Flow Bench

  14. 14. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Barcode Market (Handheld) Concept layout based on new Image Engine New CCD Image Engine Details: The concept models pictured above were created in ProE as an attempt to see what a new Handheld scanner may look like utilizing the new CCD image engine pictured at the right. This was a project I did as an independent Consultant. The CCD Image Engine on the right was generated as a new product. I worked with the optical engineer to come up with this optical configuration. Design consisted of (2) main housings, Lens Barrel, plastic molded lenses and marker Apertures, along with illumination PCB, CCD Bd and Controller PCB, Assembly was again designed for ease of assembly and low cost tooling. PCB’s were captured by plastic housings, which were fastened together with thread forming screws. CTF detail drawing were created and injection molds were made from 3D Cad files. Molded lenses Apertures Illumination Bd CCD Imager Bd
  15. 15. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Barcode Market (Handheld) Details: This Scanner is what became the flagship product for this company. I worked in a small “skunk works” R&D group where I was responsible for most everything seen here, Plastic Housing design, PCB Layout, Molded Optics, Flex Circuits. This product was to be used in very rugged environments, needed to survive a 6ft drop onto concrete floor and still work. Mirrors were plastic injection molded to 1/4 wave flatness in localized areas. Again simple open and shut tooling which was the first 3D product design the company had and tooling for Housings were mostly generated with a paperless system. The project was a huge success and laid the ground work for many future quick to market products. My name is on a number of patents with regards to these products. (company firsts: SLA Rapid Prototypes, 3D Design, Brought ProE into company, “Paperless” CTF design, using PCB as optical platform, quick to market Aluminum Tooling, all under my guidance) Production based Scanner (50-60k/year) took the company from a $5 to$30 million company Plastic Molded Mirror Nylon Stainless filled motor cover for shielding Double Sided SMT Bd. Plastic Molded Mirror LASER Block Assy
  16. 16. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Barcode Market (Handheld) Proposed New Barcode Reader (housing new image engine, from concept to detail design) Details: The concept models pictured above were created in ProE as an attempt to see what a new Handheld scanner may look like utilizing the new CCD image engine pictured at the right. This was a project I did as an independent Consultant. The CCD Image Engine above was generated as a new product. I worked with the optical engineer to come up with this optical configuration. Design consisted of (2) main housings, Lens Barrel, plastic molded lenses, CCD Bd and Controller PCB (not shown), Assembly was again designed for ease of assembly and low cost tooling. PCB’s were captured by plastic housings, which were fastened together with snaps. CTF detail drawing were created and injection molds were made from 3D Cad files.
  17. 17. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Barcode Market (Handheld) Production based Scanner (20-30k/year) Target was retail market, smaller lite weight Details: This is second major Handheld Barcode product I designed for this company. At this point I was Design Manager in the Product Development group, I was a “working” manager where I managed 3 other Mechanical designers and 1 PCB designer and their projects. On this project I designed all the housing components as well as the Molded Optics, I also did rough layout of the PCB/optical platform.This product was to be sold primarily to the retail markets, it still needed to survive a 6ft drop onto concrete floor. Mirrors were plastic injection molded to 1/4 wave flatness in localized areas. Again simple open and shut tooling and easy to assemble. There were 2 other products that we were doing that were based around this image engine. The goal was to get al (3) of these to a very important trade show as well as have quantities that the sales force could have. The result was to build 20 prototype models in record time. The show was a success and my team did a great job!! The clear plastic housings were used to perform ESD testing which were required to pass 1800v testing.

  21. 21. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Racing Projects (cont.) Custom New Nose Design for Tiga S2000 Race car Hand sculpted in expandable foam (just removed from car) These pictures represent one of my winter projects, where my goal was to come up with a new Nose design which would be more aerodynamic. The original nose had a lot of vertical frontal area. The desired result would be good downforce with a higher straight line speed. The pictures depict the different stages of the project. The first node was laid up in Fiberglass, but the mold could also be used for Carbon Fiber. Part Master, also known as the “Buck” just finished (Foam, Fiberglass, Putty, Gray Primer Buck coated with Tooling Gel-Coat, ready to start mold lay-up Completion of Fiberglass mold (Buck removed, ready for waxing and first part lay-up) First part laid up in Mold First part removed from Mold, ready for trimming. Nose trimmed and Black Gel-Coat polished. Nose fitted to the car.
  22. 22. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Racing Projects (cont.) Spindle Clamp Nut for Tiga S2000 Race car Spindle Clamp Nut; This nut holds the front wheel on and sets the Taper Bearing clearances. The original nut only allowed for finite adjustment positions, which could end up with too much clearance or too little, result, too much rolling resistance or too much wheel play, which could result in handling issues. The new nut allows for infinite adjustment to perfectly tune to the desired fit. I designed the nut in AutoCad Inventor, then machined them on my Lathe. The threads were single point cut. New Clamp Nut Design Aluminum Radiator Design (ProE) Drawing sent to Radiator mfg to quote/make New Nut with Original Nut New Clamp Nut installed on car. Aluminum Radiator for Tiga S2000 Race car Aluminum Radiator; The original radiators on this car were Brass which were heavy, so in an effort to get the car down to allowable minimum weight along with better cooling I designed and had the aluminum radiator(s) made. (car has 2 radiators)
  23. 23. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Racing Projects (cont.) Front Wheel Hub for Tiga S2000 Race car Wheel Hub/Brake Rotor; The original design was a one piece Brake Rotor/Hub. Since many of these parts were either no longer available or difficult to find I wanted to change the design so that I could use parts that are more readily available. I performed all the machining on both parts. (overall assembly also saved a couple pounds as well) New Hub/Rotor Design (ProE) Linkage Lever (ProE) Linkage Lever installed Brake Rotor New Hub/Rotor installed on car. Butterfly Linkage Lever for Tiga CSR Race car Linkage Lever; The original lever on this Bosch Mechanical Fuel Injection unit was quite crude, so I redesigned as pictured and machined in my shop. Brake Rotor Tophat Bearing Hub
  24. 24. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Racing Projects (cont.) Cylinder Head FlowBench Work Flowbench work; In all forms of racing that I have competed in, I have always built my own engines. Realizing that most power improvements come from a properly “Ported” head. I built my own Flowbench and began testing Heads, my current config. ported by?? Stock heads and heads done by well known engine builders. From there I was able to create a baseline and quantify what I had. From a Stock Head to my first finished Head I was able to see gains of 15-18% which translated in my first outing to winning; beating fellow competitors that I previously couldn’t compete with. Ford 2.0L Cylinder Head position on Flowbench for testing Data & Graph showing configuration improvements Hi-lighted areas in combustion chamber for modification. Clay (blue) positioned in Intake port for testing purposes.
  25. 25. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Racing Projects (cont.) Flywheel Mods for 2.0L Race Engine 2.0L Ford Flywheel; One of the allowable engine modifications is to reduce the weight of the stock Flywheel from 17 lbs to 10. Lbs.. I modeled the Flywheel in ProE and with the mass properties was able to get very close to the minimum weight. The CAD output file was used for CNC programming. Stock 2.0L Ford Flywheel, 17lbs (ProE) Nose Mounting Bracket formed (ProE) Nose Mounting Bracket Flat Pattern (ProE) Modified 2.0L Ford Flywheel, 10.5lbs (ProE) Nose Mounting Bracket for Tiga Race car Nose Mounting Bracket; This is a sheetmetal design to be used on the front of the nose (2 locations). It guides the nose and holds it down, it also mounts a Dzeus spring clip for quarter turn quick release fastener. I fabricated these in my shop and they worked quite well.
  26. 26. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Racing Projects (cont.) 3 Stage Oil Pump Shaft Rear Diffuser Mold; One of the methods of generating more down force on a race car with minimal drag is to add a rear diffuser, which when properly designed, helps “suck” the air out from the bottom side of the car, thus creating a low pressure area.. From the flat pattern drawing I laid this out on a sheet of Aluminum, then formed it up on my Sheetmetal Break. I then coated with mold release and laid up a fiberglass Diffuser. Formed Model for Aerodynamic Rear Diffuser (ProE) Model Oil Pump Shaft (Inventor) Detail Drawing Oil Pump Shaft (Inventor) Flat Pattern for Diffuser Mold (ProE) Sheetmetal Mold for Aerodynamic Rear Diffuser Oil Pump Shaft; The original shaft was quite heavily worn in the seal areas, So I generated a model and detail drawing to have a new shaft made. (another hard to find part)
  27. 27. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Racing Projects (cont.) Rear Upright Weldment; The original upright as built by Tiga was a casting, which were known to break. The drive axle components, Hub, outboard CV joint and axles were pretty much obsolete and the CV joint was integral to the stub axle, so before I had a CV joint go bad I wanted to convert it over to more readily available parts. I could have modified the original casting, but chose to leave it in it’s original condition as it would have greater value to vintage racers should I sell the car. I was also concerned with the amount of material to be machined away and the resultant strength. Weldment Upright Design (ProE) Upright assembled to car Upright assembled w/new Drive parts (CV side) Tiga Rear Upright Weldment Upright assembled w/new Drive parts (Wheel side) So leaving the pickup points all in the same location I designed the new upright in ProE. As you can see some of the tube intersections some interesting geometry, so what I did is to treat each tube a “Sheetmetal” and generate a 1:1 paper template of the flat pattern for each tube, I then wrapped those around the actual tubes and scribed a line of where to cut each tube. The result was nicely fitting tubes to position in the fixture for welding. I also did the same thing for the main hub, scribing the intersecting location for each tube. The assembly is TIG welded which I did myself. The resulting part has worked quite well for over 5 years and the entire corner assembly is ~2lbs lighter than original.
  28. 28. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Racing Products AeroCam In-Car Video; This was a product idea I came up with as a Driver training aid. When you are an amateur racer you never get enough track time/practice. Being able to review your on track session helps fill that void, especially with Data Acquisition overlaid. The design utilized an OEM CCD imager board, which was mounted between the (2) halves of the housing. Also mounted inside the housing was a microphone. The whole assemble had multiple mounting configurations which used a special vibration dampening material; Sorbathane The Housing was assembled using thread forming screws. A single shielded cable connected to a remote recording device. The Prototype was created by having a SLA made from the ProE CAD file, from that I made a Silicone Rubber mold for the (2) Housing halves, Rollbar “V” mount and CCD Mounting Nest Blocks. The inner Clamp Plate was made from Sheet Aluminum with PEMS and the lower Mounting Plate machined from Aluminum Plate. I made a steel rule die to make the Sorbathane Isolation Pad.

  29. 29. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Racing Products Filtered Microphone; I worked with an Electrical Engineer to try and come up with a Microphone for my In-Car Video system that would do a better job of filtering wind noise. The goal was to be able to mount the microphone inside the camera housing. The Result was this small double sided surface mount PCB, which I laid out using PADS, ordered and built. Custom Filtering Microphone for AeroCam In-Car Video Weber 2 Barrel Carburetor Cover Cover on 2 Barrel Carburetor Silicone Rubber Mold Cast Carburetor Cover Filtered Microphone; since on the Racecar the air filter isn’t located directly on the carburetor (it’s in the Air Scoop/Snorkel) it is necessary to be able to cover the Carb during transport/ non race times. The Result was I took clay and made an impression and sculpted it. I then made a silicone rubber mold so I could cast them. The part fit very nicely and served it’s purpose.
  30. 30. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Racing Products Self Timer/Data Acquisition Unit Self Timer; another important tool to help improve your driving is knowing your lap times immediately, so you then know what worked and what didn’t. This unit would also allow limits to be entered for items such as, Oil Pressure, Temps & RPM where the driver could get an audible alarm as a warning. There were a few similar systems available, but much larger and more costly than I knew we could design. The Result was I teamed up with an Electrical Engineer to work with me on this design. Other than the custom housing design all parts would be available from a company such as Digi-Key. I was never able to complete this project, which I deeply regret as I believe I would have been leading edge technology and have an affordable technology for the average Club Racer, which is one of my main objectives.

  31. 31. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio Personal Projects Other stuff; although some of these items may not have any relevance to you; I feel this helps you to further understand who I am and what I’m capable of am my versatility. I feel there are no boundaries and all these things carry over...

  34. 34. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio References/Recommendations “ As the Patent Attorney for our employer, Datalogic (formerly PSC Inc.) I had the privilege of working with Vince in obtaining patents on several of his numerous ingenious inventions, as well as on others by the design team inspired and lead by him. Vince is strong-willed, bluntly honest, and does not sugar-coat unpleasant news, but he does so in a way that merits the respect of others and makes him easy to get along with. I enjoyed seeing Vince think “outside the box” in designing a world-beating device designed, mass-manufactured, and put into boxes that could be – and were – sold all over the world by our gifted sales colleague, Rick Stathes (who happens to be another of Vince’s recommenders.) Vince was instrumental in the growth of the company from only slightly larger than its garage beginnings to a word-class 250M+ world-class manufacturer. As a former NYU Professor who taught “Valuation of Intellectual Property”, I confidently assure the reader that that Vince’s designs have undoubtedly brought in hundreds of millions of dollars to Datalogic (PSC). If you give Vince an engineering problem, and the necessary support, he will get you a solution – more likely a range of solutions – which will exceed your expectations, not to mention the efforts of others. If you, the reader, bought any retail items this week, it is a virtual certainty that their bar codes were scanned by a scanner designed by Vince LaManna.

  35. 35. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio References (cont.) “ I would hire Vince LaManna again at any time without hesitation. He is one of the best engineers that I have worked with. His real strength is in bringing solutions from concept to completion. He can have a problem described to him, and can quickly envision and develop a creative solution to that problem. During our time working together, I have frequently seen Vince look at a production line or at a particular product a customer needed measured and develop a method of using our OptiGauge system to solve the problem. Vince was the main architect in the development of Lumetrics last major product. During the development of that product, he was not only responsible for the hardware development, but also was key to developing the software structure that was implemented. Vince, a very experienced engineer, approaches problems with a systematic, thoughtful approach, quickly digesting a problem and then identifying the source. He works well with a team to come up with solutions and then implement them. A great mechanical designer, he would often develop a concept in a meeting one day and come in with the part the next morning after working in his shop over the night. Vince is a master of his craft, an individual who was able to teach a group of recently graduated engineers some of the real-world structure and solutions that schools do not teach. Vince works extremely hard at his job and is effective as a team leader and team member. With his team, Vince brought processes and simple procedures that made the Applications Engineering group that he was responsible for run more smoothly. In many ways, he helped Lumetrics develop into the respected measurement systems company that it is today.” June 20, 2009 Steve Heveron -Smith , V.P. Sales & Marketing, Lumetrics, Inc managed Vince at Lumetrics Inc.
  36. 36. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio References (cont.) “ Vince designed and developed a Sample Processing Center for a clinical blood analyzer, a significant subsystem in an FDA-approved product that Johnson & Johnson released in 2005. His work was very thorough and he did early creative concept development, he developed the entire design database for production drawings and specifications, and he was involved in verification and validation efforts in support of commercialization and FDA approval. His comprehensive approach to the design challenge resulted in a Sample Processing Center that is very well received by customers, and has been in production since 2005, with no manufacturing problems. The design history file he helped create, has been audited by the FDA and they actually liked it. Vince was able to work very well with Process Engineers, Manufacturing Engineers, CAD designers and Design Engineers to deliver a successful design to commercialization, within tight schedule and budget constraints. I recommend Vince for a Design or Leadership role for any organization.” June 22, 2009 larry barnes , Chief System Architect, Engineering Fellow, Ortho Clinical Diagnostics managed Vince at Ortho Clinical Diagnostics “ I first met Vince while employed at Lightnin in 1989. Vince was hired to help process a backlog of new product development projects and he impressed me with his ability to quickly adapt to new software tools and corporate processes. I had the good fortune of working for Vince at PSC in 1993. With his product design experience, product / process knowledge and management skills, our small "skunkworks" team brought a groundbreaking trio of new products to market in record time. I thoroughly enjoyed being a member of his team. We worked together once more in the mid 1990's at Applied Mechanical Technologies. A consulting engineering firm, AMT offered an ever-changing variety of projects and continuously validated the value of Vince's broad base of experiences, solid analytical thinking skills and creativity. I hope our professional paths coincide again as I have yet to meet a more capable Design Engineer.” June 21, 2009 daniel bentley , sr designer, kek associates inc worked directly with Vince at Applied Mechanical Technologies
  37. 37. Vincent T. LaManna’s Resume/Portfolio References (cont.) Vince LaManna has been my designer for the Fusion 5,1 Sample Handler. I understand that he was told his time is up in November. I can also tell you that, in 18 years designing products, Vince is one of the best product designers I have worked with, and I've worked with more than 50 designers, during 12 successful product designs and launches, since 1984. We have some great designers on staff, but candidly, Vince is a better product designer than some of the people currently on staff (my opinion). There may be some designers who have better knowledge of Pro E, but there are only a few on staff now who are as thorough, creative, focused and who have the breadth of product design and develop skills that Vince has. The SaHa was the first 'big' module verified on Oasis (ahead of plan, I might add), and it has very few reliability problems on EM's. That is due, in large part, to Vince's ability. That the SaHa has few problems also means it gets little attention, but that's a good thing. Basically, if there was a way to keep him around, working on Fusion 5,1, 3,1, ECi AT etc, it would be to OrthoClinical's benefit. I've worked with a lot of designers. I don't give this kind of recommendation often. He's an uncommonly good product designer, in my opinion, and he can add value to the efforts that are ahead of us. Larry 10/14/02

While his focus is mechanical, he can advise and recommend regarding electrical layout, overall design and packaging and user-oriented functionality. He is very adept at designing products that are user- friendly and logical. This is not a trait common among design engineers. Vince is a "jack-of-all-trades" in the mechanical arena; from designing high-tech products to repairing a truck engine, and is not afraid to use his experience at both to be of great value in any product design/debug environment. Vince is also a great guy who will help out in any situation, and takes his effectiveness in a company very seriously. I would highly recommend Vince in any Mechanical Design/Engineering capacity.” July 16, 2009 Gary German , Regional Director, Lumetrics managed Vince indirectly at Lumetrics Inc. “ I have learned a lot from Vince as an engineer, both personally and professionally.
