Nathan Brown is Vice President of Engineering for ALIO Industries. Nathan has extensive experience with the design, development, manufacturing, and testing of next-generation precision motion systems.
At ALIO he has the firm belief that to design systems that truly advance motion system performance engineers need to be experts in many engineering disciplines and optimize all the influencing factors from both the theoretical and real world perspectives. A great engineer is one that solves the multi-layered problems other engineers or customers don’t even see yet in an elegant, efficient, and novel design that will provide benefits for both current and future application requirements.
ALIO’s products and systems are a reflection of this mindset implemented universally by Nathan’s team to address current needs but also have the reliability and performance to meet application advancements for years to come.
Nathan and ALIO’s work doesn’t stop with design and manufacturing, as he is also involved with ASPE and ASME organizations in developing next generation testing standards for precision motion systems to push the industry to focus from legacy individual axis tests to system level test methods that better represent actual performance customers will observe on multi-axis systems.
Nathan joined ALIO in 2005 as Senior Design Engineer adding Engineering Manager and Quality Manager roles in the following years. He assumed the role of VP of Engineering in 2011.
Prior to joining ALIO, Nathan designed vacuum robotics systems for Applied Materials semiconductor manufacturing equipment. He holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin.
