Manufacturing Engineering Intern at Dish Network Corp. (DISH)
As an Manufacturing Intern at DISH Network's manufacturing facility in Spartanburg, which refurbishes 3.5 million set-top boxes every year, I worked to automate a cosmetic operation for the Joey receivers. The automation of the procedure improved labor efficiency, safety, and ergonomic opportunities. By implementing a collaborative robot in my design, there would be large savings due to headcount reduction, a payback period of 7 months, and improved consistency of the process. At the end of my internship, I had the opportunity to present my design and proposal to company executives and manufacturing managers at DISH headquarters in Denver, CO.
