Series of Summer Intern Posts - Austin Bickel

Posted by Shonda Fast on Aug 6, 2018 8:43:00 AM

In our sixth edition of our Series of Summer Intern posts, we introduce Austin Bickel, a Mechanical Engineering student at Kansas State University. Austin is from Buhler, KS but currently lives in McPherson. This is Austin's First summer working at Bradbury, but he did spend time with us this winter. Austin has been tasked with working half of his summer in the Assembly Department and the other half in Engineering. He has learned different assembly processes, as well as the engineering applications in assembling machines. Some engineering applications include, reading and interpreting engineering prints, finding the most efficient way to assemble, and learning how to improve the process. During his time in the Engineering Department, Austin has been working on a special concept project. He was tasked with designing both inboard and outboard fixtures to form a return lip on a cee purlin to 90 degrees. Part of the project parameters included the criteria of having four different parts be adjustable using pneumatic cylinders, pin locations, and on a centerline. Austin said "this was an extremely fun project and proved itself challenging in trying to figure out the most practical and most cost effective way to be designed". Gary Janzen, Mechanical Engineering Manager, said "The mechanical engineering internship is designed to give interns a feel for what is involved in a career in engineering.   Austin was assigned with the job of designing a roll tooling fixture. Austin has excelled in modeling components along with the required calculation.  Austin has a bright future in a career of mechanical engineering."

In our fifth edition of our Series of Summer Intern posts, we reintroduce Cade Papes, a Mechanical Engineering student from WaKeeney, KS that currently lives in Wichita and is attending Wichita State University.  This is Cade's second summer working at Bradbury. This year, he has been tasked with working on a Garage Door project.  In this venture, he assisted other engineers with certain design elements, updated drawings, and completed a report compilation.  He was also given a mock project of his own once the first project was completed.  The task was to design his own rollformer and perform a stress analysis based on the specifications given to him by his supervisor, Gary Janzen. Cade will continue to work for the company part-time in the fall while he works to complete his degree in December. Gary Janzen, Mechanical Engineering Manager, said "The mechanical engineering internship is designed to give interns a feel for what is involved in a career in engineering.

Intern Lunch with CEO, David Cox

Posted by Shonda Fast on Jul 23, 2018 5:19:36 PM

This year's class of Summer Interns sat down with CEO, David Cox, for lunch last week. Over sandwiches, they talked about their experience at Bradbury and thoughts about the program. The interns came armed with some tough questions and David shared his insight on life lessons. Jeremy Hett, Weld Intern, asked "What moment led you to this place in your life, David?" David shared a story of how as a senior in college he made a goal to run and lead a company one day. Although there were many challenges along the way, he has achieved his goal. He also shared some wisdom and told the interns to be life long learners. Luke Ratzlaff, Maintenance Intern, asked David for a list of books he recommended, and David did not let them down. After lunch, he provided them with a reading list consisting of work from Patrick Lencioni to John Maxwell. Discussions of work ethic, character traits, and hobbies allowed the group to connect. Although, the interns' time with us is short, we know that the experience they gain with us is essential to their future career success.
