Timothy Pevere,  CNC Machinist

  • Timothy started part-time with the company in April 2017. Once he finished high school in 2019, he was added as a full-time employee.  Having little machining background, he started out with the basics on a manual Bridgeport.  As his experience grew, he was introduced to setting up the CNC machines and learning CMM inspection.  Today, he programs using Espirit and keeps two machines busy full-time. If he has down time, he can inspect parts on the CMM.   In his off time, he is a part-time EMT and firefighter.

Tom Hanks, CMM Inspector

  • Tom was hired in July 2021 to fill the CMM Inspector position. His background in programming CAD/CAM and operation of machines, allowed him to easily adapt his skills to program and run the CMM equipment.  He has assisted the company in improving and updating procedures and processes for ISO.  The addition of Tom has enabled the company to perform more thorough inspections on all parts prior to shipping to our customers.  Tom also assists us with design work using SolidWorks and programming and operation of our CNC router.

Dale Horne, CNC Machinist

  • Dale joined the Rapid’s team as a CNC Machinist in January 2023. He comes to Rapid DTM with over 25 years in the machining environment.  His past experience has been EDM sinker and wire machining.  He has made a seamless transition to CNC machining using Esprit.  His addition to the company has allowed the company to further advance 5 axis machining operations.
