Horizon Technology announces Tom Freemer as its new Director of Technology & Business development

May 22, 2019

Horizon Technology, headquartered in St. Marys, Pennsylvania, USA, has announced the appointment of Tom Freemer, as its new Director of Technology & Business Development. Freemer, a former design and materials expert at Hoeganaes, has experience of working with numerous OEMs and auto makers.

The company states that Freemer was brought on board to work with customers to make their product manufacturable in Powder Metallurgy, and in the most cost-efficient way possible. He will also help to steer future advances in technology and materials.

“I try to look at things from the beginning to the end of the process. The customer cares about how we can make PM manufacturable. I’ve done everything from product design, tool design and process design all while factoring in customers quality expectations for the end product. When we’re on the shop floor with visitors and walk them through the process, from our CNC compaction to our high-temp sintering, we want to give then peace of mind about the technical aspect,” stated Freemer.

Freemer holds an engineering degree from Penn State University and, in addition to his accomplishments at Hoeganaes, has spent time directing product development at Advanced Powder Products, GKN Sinter Metals, PMG, and Symmco.

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.
