Dr. Kevin Elliott is a Senior Precision Engineer in the corporate precision engineering group responsible for precision needs across all Corning divisions globally. He is recognized throughout the corporation as a subject matter expert for precision machine design, error budgets, precision measurements, and machining processes. Kevin’s responsibilities include serving as technical lead on some of Corning’s most challenging projects, managing a group of engineers and technicians responsible for precision design, measurement, and machining, in addition to supervising an ultra-precision machining lab that includes diamond turning capabilities.
Kevin received his M.S. (2002) and Ph.D. (2008) from the Center for Precision Metrology at UNC-Charlotte. His thesis and dissertation were focused on high speed machining and precision instrumentation/machine design. After graduation, Kevin joined Corning as a product development and measurement engineer the optical communications division where his career escalated to his current role supporting precision engineering company wide.
While at UNC-Charlotte, Kevin was first introduced to ASPE and became a member of the student chapter. He attended his first ASPE conference and joined the society in 2006. At the annual ASPE meetings, Kevin has presented on a precision biological scanning instrument (2007) and a large-scale precision motion platform design/development (2018). Kevin has been an active member of the Precision Design and Metrology TLCs since their inception. Additionally, he has served on the Nominating Committee for the past two years.
Dr. Elliott is a strong proponent of the value ASPE brings the precision community in the form of networking, technical discussion, and idea sharing. He is also supportive of the growing engagement of ASPE with universities and students through the annual meetings and student challenges. Kevin is excited about this potential opportunity to help drive ASPE as we influence the next generation of precision engineering.
