With over 23 years of working experience in the manufacturing industry, Todd Wells has served as principal consultant for Engineering Drawings for Machining and consulted on Measurement Concepts. Read on to find out about his career journey, passion for learning, and more.
This could be the strangest advice you have heard lately. However, it is true and is backed by science. After a stressful day or after a long learning session, you may feel like you simply cannot learn one thing more. But the next day, when you are well rested, you resume learning new things. Research suggests that there is an important connection between sleep and improved memory, both before and after a learning session. It is suggested that your body strengthens learning and memory pathways in your brain, making it easier for you to learn new things.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
This holds true for all engineers.Technical drawing allows efficient communication among engineers. Engineering drawing is all about applying mathematical and scientific knowledge to designing. To be successful as an engineer, a person must be able to accurately communicate one’s design intentions to clients, manufacturers, and end users through the use of drawings, specifications, and instructions.
Engineering drawings must be clear and accurate. When engineers fail to accurately communicate their designs, expensive materials can be cut in wrong sizes, joints can be completed improperly and may require expensive changes to be adapted back to the original intent. This can lead to improper structures and failed machinery, resulting in loss of property, loss of money, or even serious accidents. So how does an engineer excel at drawing? By getting the basics right.
Understanding which industry trends are on the rise, as well as which ones are fizzling out, is a must to make your manufacturing business successful. Industry trends tend to change every year. For future growth, it is important to be aware of the upcoming predictions and incorporate them into your business model.
