In the last 7 years as a Manufacturing Process Engineer, Chelsea Cummings has been an instrumental member of manufacturing teams, undertaking qualification of Additive Manufacturing processes to produce both engine and aerostructure metal flight components. She uses her expert knowledge of machine operation and manufacturing process optimization and risk reduction to accelerate customers in their AM journey. Having qualified both engine and aerostructure flight components, the first of their kind to fly, and trained operators on 8 different types of metal powder machines (both laser and electron beam) in nickel and titanium alloy systems, she uses these skills to help TBGA customers build controlled processes, identify valuable applications, and qualify parts for stable and profitable production. She helps customers identify an AM industrialization plan from start to finish, often beginning with Design for AM, through sustainable quality inspection and test strategies. She is also a catalyst to existing AM programs, with the experience to aid both the engineering and operations side, she assesses gaps between the two and jumpstarts them into a more productive, lean state. Lean Greenbelt certified by both her alma mater, Arizona State University – where she earned her B.S. Industrial Engineering, and Honeywell, she cultivates streamlined AM designs, production, and applications.
