About me

Hi, my name is Manuel, Msc in Industrial Engineer at University of Vigo. I have more than twelve years of experience in software programming, automation, digitalisation, artificial vision systems and integration of different technologies, focusing on Industry 4.0 during the last years.

I started working with Linux, robotics and programming. Later I worked as an automation engineer and for the last almost 11 years I have been working as a senior R&D researcher, leading R&D projects at regional, national and European level.

Currently, I have decided to take the plunge and work as a professional freelancer and entrepreneur, focused on Industry 4.0, automation and software development, with the objective of applying all my knowledge and expertise to improve the current financial situation of several business.

See what I can help you with in the next point.

How can I help you?

My experience in industry, R&D and in different sectors allows me to analyse the day-to-day work of companies and see areas for improvement, in order to optimise time and therefore costs. Perhaps the development of software or the application of a specific technology allows you to save days.

Do you think there are tasks in which a lot of time is wasted? Contact me without obligation and we will discuss the possibilities for improvement.

The latest industrial revolution is Industry 4.0. It is something mandatory the application of new technologies in the companies if we want to be competitive: advanced automation, digitalisation, IoT…

In recent years I have been working on European projects with I4.0 as the main objective. If you want to know what that is or how to apply it, I can help you.

Do you need to develop specific software? I have programmed with multiple programming languages throughout my professional life. I can help you to develop applications in C, C++, C#, Java, Python…

Check my CV and see in which languages I have more experience and in which I am training and acquiring more knowledge.

If you need any kind of automation in your company, you can count on me, being a specialist in SIEMENS and BECKHOFF, although I can adapt to other brands such as Schneider, Omron, Allen-Bradley…

In the last 10 years I have developed artificial vision systems applied to a multitude of sectors: metalworking, iron and steel, slate, naval… From the definition of cameras, lenses and lighting, to the development of the application and the final implementation on site.

You can check a small sample in the published articles section.

Not everything is going to be programming, it is also necessary to manage projects. My experience managing national and international projects, from the smallest to those with big budgets, helps me in this.

In addition to applying my management skills to my own developments, I can also help you manage yours, or give you advice if you don’t know where to start.

Do you need help to write an R&D proposal for a call for proposals, or to publish a paper?

I have been involved in many proposals, some of them winners and some of them losers, so I have experience on both sides. I can help you during all the writing phases.

I have ben working almost 11 years in R&D, so this experiences allows me to have a high knowledge of how it works at regional, national and European level.

If you have an R&D project that you want to present or you want to apply it into your company, a Technology Centre can help you, but if you want to start quickly and know initially how to approach it better or if it is technically feasible, do not hesitate to contact me.

Maybe there are more developments, technology or projects that I have not listed and that I can help you with.

Contact me without obligation and we will see if there is a possibility to collaborate.
