Keith Thorp, Production Coordinator/Lead Technician, joins ASE Optics to help companies get new products to market faster by coordinating the move from prototype to production. Keith will expand the contract engineering companys ability to produce opto-mechanical system assemblies for companies in biomedical, commercial, scientific and defense industries.
ASE General Manager Christopher Cotton notes: Keith has quickly brought value to our customers by helping identify the best path forward for projects moving into production. For a recent project, he helped to figure out the tooling and assembly methods for an initial small run, with a higher volume demand before year-end. The Production Coordinator/Technical Lead is an important role and skillset that our customers often dont have in house.
Keith Thorp adds, ASE offers me the chance to contribute and directly build things for customers. The culture here is supportive and customer-oriented.
Keith is currently working to build an imaging system to test performance of camera system prototypes. For this customer, after successfully delivering the prototypes, he will provide the documentation and training for production technicians, troubleshoot the assembly procedures, and speed large volume production. For another customer, Keith is coordinating the small-volume production of aerial imaging systems, thermalizing and ruggedizing lenses.
Keith earned a BS in Optics from the University of Rochester, and has twenty years of experience at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics.
