Rubén Gotor, the new “MacGyver”. No machine, prototype or setup can resist him.

Rubén Gotor (Calatayud, 1980) specializes in assembly, “whatever the challenge and whatever the situation”. As a senior technician in electromechanical maintenance in INFINITIA’s Materials Department, his main function is to provide that “technical hand” when creating. With his experience and knowledge in the world of assembly, materials and tools, he gives another point of view more focused on the post-design, but also offers an extra value by having the vision of the final assembly.

With an extensive background, Gotor, qualified as a specialist technician (FP II) in Electromechanical Maintenance, began working in 2003 at the Institute of Materials Science of Aragon, as a laboratory technician and activities. There, he was in charge of the design and production of machine prototypes and setups for research laboratories, as well as laboratory work. In addition, he has also worked at OESA, ORU ESPAÑA, Carrefour and Adecco, where he has been a maintenance and assembly technician of industrial machinery for the manufacture of concrete, a supermarket’s own machine technician and a production operator in companies related to industrial machinery.

Gotor defines himself as passionate about challenges, even more so if they have to do with assembly or repairs. In this sense, his greatest motivation is to have the vision of the final result, once finished, working and adding value to research projects. This provides him with continuous learning and makes him face new challenges with more motivation and enthusiasm.

His inspiration comes from the mechanics of things, from knowing how everything that falls into his hands works. “I like to apply this knowledge to my assemblies. Getting the best option right is not easy, but that’s where the learning lies, and there are always options that inspire something new,” he says.

As an engineer, he feels he has an obligation to meet needs that arise on a daily basis, whether they are everyday problems or the creation of new demands that serve the day-to-day. “To do this, it is necessary to have people and teams who are prepared and capable of creating things that are only imagined. Thanks to this, we have within our reach practically everything we can imagine,” Gotor concludes.
