My name is Shashank Bailady, a mechanical engineering graduate with 6 years of experience in machine design, finite element analysis and solid mechanics.

I am a great fan of technology and have special love for machines. Currently working in Colebrook Bosson Saunders (CBS is a Subsidiary of Herman Miller Inc.) as a Product Development Engineer for 3+ years, working on providing engineering solutions for one of the best in class office products like monitor arms, CPU holders etc.

Before joining CBS, I was working in Tantra Info solutions for 2 and ½ years on hand calculations, value engineering, FEA, CAD and manufacturing drawings. Worked closely with chief technical officer to build some of the interesting machinery which I loved the most in my professional career as got an opportunity to work on core technical like selection of materials, understanding of different types of forces and boundary conditions, calculations behind beams, columns, selection of components like bearings, gears, motors, couplings, pulleys, drives, springs etc.

• Good at machine design and solid mechanics.
• Good knowledge of ANSYS workbench V18, working experience in ANSYS APDL, Solidworks 2016, MS office products, Inventor and PTC Creo.

Please have look at the attached CV for more details.

Looking forward for your call to discuss about my capabilities and how it will help you in future.

Many thanks,
Shashank B
