I love how advances in technology and software can have such a direct impact on the work that I do.
We now have a generation of machines and software that can talk to each other, whereas perhaps ten years ago we wouldn’t have had. I’m excited about the improvements to come, that’ll mean the work I do is more efficient.
I would describe it as prototype manufacturing. I produce little radio receivers for satellites and also work with companies and organisations interested in this area of high precision work. Some of the parts I make are assembled using a hair on the end of a pair of tweezers – that’s how small we’re talking.
