Aeronics is a company founded by two Pitt graduates who developed a safe way of densely storing oxygen in an aerosol-like container. Their initial focus was on recreational and military applications, which they are still pursuing, but discovered a significant need in the veterinary space for quick, lightweight, and mobile oxygen supply. With that target market in mind, I was able to help quickly develop a plastic quick-release regulator system based on components they had already been using and producing for their other markets.
What was originally a manual, time-consuming, custom design process, I was able to automate using built in tools in Solidworks covering the creation of drawings and documentation for 99% of customer orders. I was approached to design a new product line given the requirement that it would be our cheapest linear fixture. Working from the previous standardization work, I created an incredibly modular fixture supporting thousands of configurations with only a dozen unique manufactured parts.
