The intended purpose of this document is to provide the Whitacre College of Engineering with a detailed documentation of the work done during my 2012 summer internship at Trinity Forge, a closed-die and CNC machining facility in Mansfield, TX.
Forging engineers, at Trinity Forge, design the tooling to meet customer’s needs and lay out the many steps/processes that go into manufacturing a forged part.
During my employment at Trinity Forge, I had to complete many engineering related task and work with other engineers on their projects. From understanding materials to learning and mastering new software to do a job, this internship proves to be an invaluable experience.
My position as an internship employee at Trinity Forge involved a variety of engineering-related tasks such as using 3D scanning hardware and software, creating models with CAD software, and running forging simulations with a powerful process simulation system. I also had exposure to Quality Assurance while creating Quality Control (QC) inspection prints and Machining QC prints for part inspection as well as the business side of an engineering role.
More specifically, during my employment, I was appointed the duties of scanning dies and models for many different purposes. I would run a 3D comparison test between the CAD model of the die and a scanned model of new machined dies, dies that had been through a production run, or after they have been repaired and re-machined referred to as a “Resink.” The test...
