About me? I operate the small engineering and design firm Ingenieur Robert Forbus. My work specialty is the design of automated equipment and tooling.

My background is precision machining and plant engineering management for high-speed web printing and bindery equipment as well as the engineering management of plastics extrusion and spinning mills. I have a solid background for root cause analysis in regards to machine/process reliability.

I was born in the Country formerly known as West Germany and began my career as a Machinist’s apprentice during 1977; completed this apprenticeship, then the Toolmaker’s apprenticeship, and finally the Engineer’s apprenticeship. I spent more than three (03) decades working in private industry as a engineering professional.

And, I love the German Shepherd Dog breed!
