Much of his role involves designing and drawing machined parts, small fixtures and automated cells for many of R & D’s projects. The Medical Device industry is a new sector for him, but he has adapted well and absorbed a great deal of information about design and drafting, machining, fabricating, machine building and automation. Lucas attended Hennepin Technical College and studied his trade in mechanical drafting. Lucas lives in Lino Lakes, MN and enjoys spending time attending car shows, auto races, riding motorcycles, fishing and other sporting events.
