While at SI I oversaw the installation and running of a CNC cutting table, pictured in the previous image. Once the machine was up and running I programmed a database of screens built in to SolidWorks that allowed a single operator to fabricate dozen of unique screens a day.
Here you can see the Reference Motorized projector screen, which utilizes one of the screen tensioning systems that I developed. In manufacturing projection screens, the flatness of the material is imperative. Much of the work I did for SI involved developing various techniques in this regard.
At SI our job in engineering was to develop the next innovation in screen technology. This afforded me the opportunity to work with a variety of novel materials and fabrication techniques. Tools such as calendering, laminating, extrusion, and other material joining methods.

Screen Innovations

Screen Innovations (SI) is a US based projection screen manufacturer specializing in high end commercial and residential screen systems. SI being a smaller company, I was one of only two engineers, my primary job being research and new product development. A number of the products I worked on are currently in production.
