About the Author

Jennifer Marrs, P.E., is a mechanical design engineer. For two decades, her focus has been the design and analysis of high-speed assembly machines and related systems. She has also worked as a product designer, manufacturing engineer and forensic engineer. She is pictured here with the off-road vehicle she built by hand, a genuine labor of mechanical love.When Jennifer initially approached Industrial Press with her extraordinary idea forMachine Designers Reference, she said "I have an idea for a companion to Machinery's Handbook.... a Toolbox that contains items I've... squirreled away over my years of machine design. These are items that the working machine designer uses just about every day." Jennifer holds a BSME from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, an MSME from Northeastern University, and volunteers with the mechanical engineering programs at both WPI and Dartmouth College. She enjoys her successful consulting practice and is a licensed Professional Engineer throughout New England (click here to visit her website). She is also a registered U.S. patent agent. Her employers and clients include Gillette, Millipore, FujiFilm Dimatix, and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. Mrs. Marrs is currently on the Executive Committee of her local ASME subsection and holds an international patent.
