Raven Industries is a ledgendary balloon making company.
Controls Engineer (Former Employee) – Sulphur Springs, TX – 30 June 2017
Our project was to automate the process of making these balloons. I provided a concept, then worked with a designer and machinist to realize the mechanics to build the machine. Most of my work was on the motion control system and programming. In just 4 months we had made our first balloon with the machine. I worked 3 days a week at first, then 5 days a week after 1 month. The team was very capable and drew pride in every successful step in the design. After we demonstrated the machine and build a complete balloon, the parent company shut every thing down a moved it to Europe. Still, we were paid well and satisfied with the results.
Really good working conditions
Don't expect a European company to play fair
