Timeline

Professional experience for Lucas-Alexandre Stern

  • Current 3 years and 9 months, since May 2018

    R&D Engineer

    STEIGER Galvanotechnique S.A.

    o Development of novel coatings for robotic and watchmaking components, successfully secured an order of 3000 pieces a year for industrial processing of robotic components o Managed a project with an important client liaising both with our internal technicians and client’s project manager to drive forward novel PVD coatings on medical tools. o Using UV-LIGA process, thousands of watches’ pieces were prepared in microelectroforming units
