Service Description

Mr Miles entered the electronic packaging industry in 1978 designing components and systems for Tektronix. After approximately ten years employment, Mr Miles opened his practice as a Consulting Design Engineer in November of 1988. He has maintained a direct involvement with the detail design as well as the system design of a wide variety of products. His combination of strengths in plastic part design, mechanism design, stress analysis of materials, and thermal system design are complimented by an acute awareness of the latest technologies and components in the electronic industry. His mechanical design of a broad spectrum of products ranging from small handheld to rack based systems and consumer products to specialized advanced technology equipment illustrate a few facets of his design abilities.
