Alexander Pallagi is an Intellectual Property patent engineer with Foley & Lardner LLP, based in the firm’s Milwaukee office, where he is a member of the firm’s Mechanical & Electromechanical Technologies Practice. Alexander is well versed in engineering disciplines including machine design, system modeling, statistical analysis and building mechatronic systems. He is proficient in dominant software tools such as CAD, 2D and 3D design, Reliasoft, MatLab, Tableau, Simulink and LABView.
Prior to joining Foley, Alexander worked as a manufacturing engineering specialist for GE healthcare company where he obtained experience as a technical leader for CTD Detector production line. He supported manufacturing with execution of equipment and measurement system qualifications as well as engineering change controls while driving closure of product deviations by using problem solving skills to develop robust, mistake proof solutions. He also improved manufacturing line by analyzing and planning workflow, creating production dashboards and implementing process improvements.
In addition to his experience at GE, Alexander interned at Master Lock in die cast engineering assisting with calculations, design drawings, preliminary cost estimates and field visits to observe construction progress. He applied mechanical troubleshooting skills to develop effective solutions for quality products.
Alexander has been involved in technical projects including 3D printing a toy jeep with ejection seat, a mechatronic rover that removed trash from restaurants implementing Arduino to control and log trash collection data, a functional windmill prototype using fundamentals of aerodynamics to optimize blade design and created a keyed cylinder quality testing machine for Master Lock that cycle tested final assemblies and rejected parts failing to meet quality standards, eliminating 100% of waste sent to assembly.
