Atlas Pressed Metals, DuBois, Pennsylvania, USA, has expanded its team with the addition of Trevor Graham as Engineering Manager and Craig Stringer as Senior Metallurgical Engineer.
As Engineering Manager, Graham brings more than two decades of engineering and plant management experience to the Atlas team. His responsibilities extend from overseeing Atlas’ process, design, and tooling engineering, as well as quoting, R&D, implementation of process improvements, and addressing questions from sales and customers.
“I’ve been lucky enough to work in several industries during my career,” stated Graham. “Collectively, I think the knowledge I gained along the way will translate well to working with powdered metal. My experience with material handling, ferrous and non-ferrous materials, mechanical presses, and thermodynamics gives me a new perspective on the powdered metal industry, too.”
Craig Stringer, Ph.D., joins Atlas following five years as an assistant professor of engineering at The Pennsylvania State University, DuBois campus. The transition from academia to industry, states Stringer, has given him unique preparation and expertise in the powdered metal field.
“Being exposed to a wide range of different techniques and materials—even those outside of powdered metals—makes it possible to think critically about the ways to use those materials and gain the most benefit in various applications,” states Stringer. “The academic side has provided a theoretical content and context that allows me to think outside of the traditional Powder Metallurgy box.”
