Hello! I'm Sahil


I am a Mechanical Engineering graduate from Penn State, University Park. I have developed a lucrative interest in the technological parade from a young age. An admire for the abstract coupled with an innovative mind has allowed me to go through success for most areas of my life, most notably: Academic, Sports, and Co-Curricular. Common Sense, aim, and jest are the anchors of my personality, all level-headed to gear me with a strong function ethic and desirable group skills.

New Product Development Co-op

January 2019 - July 2019

Columbus, Indiana

​​​Cummins Inc.

  • Awarded by the CTO for being the winner of Cummins 100thAnniversary Global Innovation Challenge in Technical/Product Category for a solution to minimize counterfeits products

  • Headed the development of The Annular Chip, a robotic non-contact motion measurement system for fuel pumps, to perform the eccentric rotational analysis, log data and detect abnormalities

  • Advanced development of a high-resolution, non-invasive electromechanical displacement measurement system for needle motion of XPIfuel injectors to aid product design

  • Contributed to the advancement of a new fuel injector; focused on failure analysis and solving design issues

Robotics Intern

June 2018 - August 2018

Durango, Colorado

StoneAge Waterblast Tools

I was responsible for designing, developing, and executing a Data Logging Device, which collected test data for a product in development. I also created a mounting mechanism that enabled the device to collect working statistics in industrial usage. The tool functionality could be reviewed and potentially improved based on data analysis after use. 

  • Designed and implemented a device from scratch, which can log 1.5M data points of various critical operational data along with an associated timestamp.​​

  • Created a mounting mechanism, with anti-rotation and shock absorption, using custom washers, O-ring, and bearings. 

  • Modified the original product to accommodate the device and mounting mechanism

  • Applied knowledge of thermal conductivity, magnetic field strengths and material properties for the development of the device

  • Developed multiple SolidWorks and Eagle CAD models for the device planning and prototypes

  • Built and tested two prototypes of the device

  • Achieved battery life expectancy of 1.13 years, high working temperature range of -40F to 257F along with a waterproof and greaseproof design

I collaborated closely with the Robotics team and the Mechanical Engineering team to achieve maximum potential for this device’s future.
