What do you love most about working here?

The atmosphere at MTS really encourages learning. I really enjoy the opportunity to get to learn and work with all types of sensors, cameras, robots, and companies.

What’s your favorite thing about the manufacturing industry?

My favorite thing is the constant influx of new technologies and how they can be applied to problems that present themselves in the industry. The automation processes also fascinate me as well. The intricacies of the machines themselves are always very interesting.

How did you get connected to the industry?

I am currently a junior, majoring in Mechanical Engineering at Dordt University. I was always interested in the Manufacturing industry and am grateful to the opportunity to learn more about different companies and technologies that are part of this industry.

What’s your favorite tool/app to use at the moment? Why?

The Gocator from LMI is a fascinating scanner and I am still learning all of its capabilities. It is used for 3D scanning and measurements. The software is also super extensive, and I can’t wait to continue to learn more about it.

How would you describe MTS to others?

MTS is a place that encourages and promotes growth and improvement to both its employees and its clients. It is a group of dedicated individuals who work hard to improve South Dakotas manufacturers’ processes and products.
