For over four decades, Cindy Freeby, Regional Sales Manager at Ametek Specialty Metal Products, Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA, has led a successful career in the Powder Metallurgy sector. Earlier in the year, Freeby’s work was recognised when she became the first woman to receive the APMI’s prestigious Fellow Award.

Ametek Specialty Metal Products, with this new Fellow among its ranks, has published an interview with Freeby as the latest in its interview series ‘Raising the Profile of Women in Engineering’, to discuss her extensive career and the place of women in STEM and how to attract this large segment of the population to Powder Metallurgy.

“I received my degree in chemistry a while back, but I think that many women, at that time, felt frightened to enter what was widely considered a ‘man’s world’,” Freeby said.

“To an extent, these perceptions still remain,” she noted. “I think it is important for young women to be exposed to the vast opportunities in the world of science and engineering, so they can see the prominent careers which are offered in Powder Metallurgy and other technical industries.”

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
