Electro mechanical technology merges electronics, mechanics, fluid power, PLC and computer controls with sensors, transducers and actuators to manufacture a product or perform a task with minimal human intervention. This frees people from the routine tasks and allows them to focus on solving problems, fixing equipment breakdowns or improving processes. A person with these diverse skill sets has a wider range of employment opportunities and is prepared to adapt to changes in industry. The technician with training in Electro mechanical technology will be ready to take advantage of the new developments in industry and realize their potential to grow with changes in the global economy.
To investigate the effect of electro-acupuncture (EA) as a non-pharmacological intervention to prevent or reduce chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) in breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy of taxane. Women with stage I-III breast cancer scheduled to receive taxane therapy were randomized to receive a standardized protocol of 12 true or sham EA (SEA) weekly treatments concurrent with taxane treatment. Subjects completed the Brief Pain Inventory-Short Form (BPI-SF), Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Taxane neurotoxicity subscale (FACT-NTX), and other assessments at baseline and weeks 6, 12, and 16. A total of 180 subjects were screened, 63 enrolled and 48 completed week 16 assessments. Mean age was 50 with 25 % white, 25 % black, and 43 % Hispanic; 52 % had no prior chemotherapy. At week 12, both groups reported an increase in mean BPI-SF worst pain score, but no mean differences were found between groups (SEA 2.8 vs. EA 2.6, P = .86). By week 16, the SEA group returned to baseline, while the EA group continued to worsen (SEA 1.7 vs. EA 3.4, P = .03). The increase in BPI-SF worst pain score was 1.62 points higher in the EA group than in the SEA group at week 16 (P = .04). In a randomized, sham-controlled trial of EA for prevention of taxane-induced CIPN, there were no differences in pain or neuropathy between groups at week 12. Of concern, subjects on EA had a slower recovery than SEA subjects. Future studies should focus on EA for treatment as opposed to prevention of CIPN.
The Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology (B.S. EMET) degree program provides the basic undergraduate education required for a career as an electro-mechanical engineering technologist. The program emphasizes a breadth of knowledge in all fields of engineering technology related to typical, highly-automated manufacturing, production, or assembly plant processes. Basic coverage is provided in all major areas to technology involved in the operation and control of manufacturing and production processes, including instrumentation and monitoring methods, principles of machine design, automated control techniques, thermal and fluid sciences, computerized manufacturing systems, principles of electrical and electronic circuit operation, computer-aided drafting and design, economics of production, and statistical analysis and quality control.
The primary aim of the EMET program is to provide graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to apply current methods and technology to the development, design, operation, and management of electro-mechanical systems, particularly in those industries where automated systems are prevalent.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology responds to a growing demand for engineers with a broad range of technical skills. The program emphasizes knowledge in the field of technology related to the design, maintenance, and operation of electromechanical systems, essentially automation and robotics. These systems incorporate electronic, mechanical, instrumentation and control elements. The program provides students with hands-on experience with these elements, technical knowledge, and the soft skills needed to be successful in the field of engineering. In this curriculum, students receive early exposure to technology by scheduling technical courses in the major. A laboratory component that promotes the understanding of the subject matter through the experiential application of theory accompanies most technical courses. This program culminates with a senior capstone project in which students work together in a team to design and implement an engineering project from initial proposal through product demonstration.
Operate, test, maintain, or adjust unmanned, automated, servomechanical, or electromechanical equipment. May operate unmanned submarines, aircraft, or other equipment to observe or record visual information at sites such as oil rigs, crop fields, buildings, or for similar infrastructure, deep ocean exploration, or hazardous waste removal. May assist engineers in testing and designing robotics equipment.
a, b, Schematics of the cross-sections of thin-film (a) and conventional (b) LN modulators. Our thin-film modulator (a) has an oxide layer underneath the device layer, so that velocity matching can be achieved while maximum electro-optic efficiency is maintained. A conventional modulator (b) also uses a buffer oxide layer for velocity matching, but on top of LN which further compromises the electro-optic overlap. c, d, Numerically simulated microwave (c) and optical (d) field distributions (both shown in Ez components) in the cross-section of the thin-film modulator. For microwave simulations, the electric-field values are obtained when a voltage of 1 V is applied across the two electrodes. e, Group refractive indices for both optical and microwave signals as a function of the buried oxide thickness. Velocity matching can be achieved with an oxide thickness of about 4,700 nm.
Since 1982, we have been designing, manufacturing and selling a line of innovative electronic equipment. Pantheon Research puts a premium on the quality, clinical efficacy and dependability of its products. We are the only manufacturer of electro-acupuncture stimulators in the United States and use high-quality, professional grade components that are reliable, predictable and dependable.
Design-based activities are incorporated throughout the EMET curriculum, with most courses paired with hands-on laboratory experiences. The program culminates in a capstone design project during the final two semesters that focuses on the planning, development, and implementation of an electro-mechanical design project. For the course, student teams manage a major project that must involve the design and implementation of a product or process that integrates electrical and mechanical components with elements of computer control.
Providing precious and non-precious electroplating since 1950. We specialize in plating of gold, silver, rhodium, palladium, nickel and tin-lead using a variety of techniques including barrel, reel-to-reel, selective and vibratory plating methods. 2b1af7f3a8
