James “JC” Kraml is a mechanical engineer responsible for the mechanical design and development of prototypes, performing mechanical calculations, and communicating technical information at MJ Engineering. Since joining the company in June 2019, Kraml has worked on certifying a lifting device, cable calculations, and an robotic automation project. Kraml is proficient in SolidWorks and 3D printing, and he uses his experience to rapidly solve problems and keep projects on schedule. A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Kraml attended Ohio University in Athens, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. Kraml says he became an engineer because he loves learning about how parts go together. “Engineering is a challenging field that requires you to constantly learn and think differently to solve problems,” says Kraml.
Fun facts: JC Kraml is 6’ 9” tall, and he has a Blue Merle border collie named “Apollo,” after the Greek god of knowledge. His favorite quote is by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe: “Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.”
