Martin completed an apprenticeship as an industrial mechanic in metal engineering at Burkhardt + Weber in Reutlingen. After gaining years of experience processing vehicles, ship engines, and gears, he joined the testing department where he was responsible for process optimization on CNC-controlled machines, sensors, and fixture construction. After additional years of training, Martin became a Bachelor Professional of Metal Technology in Rottenburg am Neckar.
Thereafter, Martin joined the team developing angle grinders and rotary hammers at Kress-Elektrowerkzeuge in Bisingen. As a test technician, he was responsible for designing and manufacturing prototypes, assembling power tools, and constructing and implementing performance tests on automated test benches. Here, he gained comprehensive knowledge of plastic injection molding technology, the manufacture of electric motors, and the optimization of existing and new products.
Martin began his career at NMI in 2010 as an advising technician, providing customer support in the subject area of classic connection methods (such as screws or welding) to adhesive connections. Often, this position required designing and manufacturing new devices for tensile and compression tests. As a result of collaborating with multiple working groups at NMI, his range of tasks expanded to include medical technology, surface analysis, and implant coating. Since January 2023, Martin has been a technician at the µOrganoLab, where he supports the group in the production of chips, molding PDMS and epoxy components, as well as working on the hot press, laser cutter, and Dektak. He manufactures prototypes and keeps the labs running while constructing parts for various machines used on a daily basis.
