Dan has worked with industrial and aerospace turbomachinery, and became specialized in oil-free and high speed system rotordynamics, bearings, and production transitions with over 20 years of hands-on R&D experience. Dan has worked with industry leading technology in this area at Capstone Turbine, Honeywell Aerospace, and Calnetix Technologies. He has been a significant contributor to several new centerline designs for both conventional and oil-free systems and is as comfortable with design and test as he is with analysis. Dan has a Masters of Science in Mechanical Engineering which he earned at the Texas A&M University Turbo Lab in College Station, Texas. Prior to that, he received a Bachelors in Engineering Science from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. Dan has published papers on squeeze film dampers and foil bearing developments for micro gas turbines.
Tony has designed high speed rotating equipment for over ten years in applications such as hydro-electric turbines, atomizers, steam turbines, and CNC spindles. He holds a bachelors in Mechanical Engineering Technology degree from UNC Charlotte. He also is an EIT since 2005. He is very proficient in Autodesk Inventor and SolidWorks. Tony is very knowledgeable in angular contact bearing designs and troubleshooting, dynamic balancing and stress analysis on rotating equipment.
There are several sources for foil bearings. Most do not have COMMERCIAL SYSTEM and MASS PRODUCTION experience. There are not many experienced engineers who are able to help you reduce the risk of integrating these new technologies with your proven technologies. We present the combination of formal theory with valuable hands-on experience, bringing all the elements together. From risk assessment to design reviews to complete machine design, Oil-Free Machinery complements your team.
