As a global leader in manufacturing, AMETEK, Inc. now relies on Haas machinery to produce its precisely cut radiation detectors from high purity germanium (HPGe) crystal. However, when Lillian Frazier joined the team as Detector Process Engineer in 2018, AMETEK was outsourcing the cutting of its germanium material. To bring production completely in-house, AMETEK acquired a Haas Mini Mill, and Lillian was tasked with heading up the project. As a hands-on leader, she wanted to know as much as possible about the machine she was responsible for. So, when she learned of a week-long Haas maintenance course taught at the Phillips Haas Service Training Center in Knoxville, TN, she signed up for the first available spot.
