Introduction of Gary Slavin


Gary Slavin was born in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK, in 1988. Initially, he studied a BTEC in Aeronautical Engineering, before studying his Masters in Aerospace & Aeronautical Engineering. Gary worked for Rolls-Royce Plc. over several summers whilst studying, and following his University graduation, joined the company full time as an Engineering Leadership Graduate Trainee. He worked on manufacturing processes related to wide chord fan blades and turbine blades, and also worked on marine components whilst living in Sweden. For the past 4 years Gary has worked in the area of shot peening, and was responsible for implementing the process of shot peening into a new Rolls-Royce production facility, including complex part method development and programming on various disc components. In early 2016 he began working for the Advanced Remanufacturing & Technology Centre (ARTC) in Singapore as a Senior Research Engineer. He currently manages a team in the delivery of research and development initiatives and projects relating to shot peening, and works with member companies and suppliers in the aerospace market. He also focusses on customer projects, and works with his team to develop strategies which apply Industry 4.0 (Future of Manufacturing) to shot peening, a key research and development area at ARTC. Gary is keen to expand his team to help companies make improvements and implement progressive step changes to their current shot peening process to enable them to remain competitive in the market.
