Experience Automation in Action

Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology program (EMET) has a long standing relationship with Balluff, Inc., an industrial products manufacturer, with operations in Florence, KY.  Balluff, Inc. has been a dependable resource for the College, providing co-op opportunities for student-scholars, and in 2015 backed the program with a generous donation of automation equipment 

Larry Feist, EMET Program Chair presents students with a unique hands-on automation experience, as the program hosts the Balluff, Inc. Automation Demonstration Van, next Tuesday, September 27, 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.  The interactive van, which will be located between Main Building and the ATLC Building, Clifton campus, will include demonstrations of the following:

  • Error Proofing
  • Washdown
  • Hydraulics & Pneumatics
  • Electric Drives
  • Precision Sensing
  • Metal Forming
  • Welding
  • IO Link
  • RFID & Traceability

Students, faculty, and staff are all encouraged to stop by the Balluff, Inc. Demo Van to get a hands-on experience of electromechanical automation and technology.

Cincinnati State’s EMET is the largest of its kind in Ohio.  Industrial technology is a high priority occupation.  The use of electromechanical automation to control manufacturing processes enables high productivity and competitiveness in the global economy.  It demands well-trained technicians who can service, maintain, install and retrofit sophisticated equipment and systems.

Air Quality Advisory for September 23, 2016

The Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency (Agency) has issued an Air Quality Advisory for Friday, September 23, 2016 for Butler, Clermont, Hamilton, and Warren counties in Ohio and Boone, Campbell, and Kenton counties in Kentucky. 

The Agency expects to see ozone concentrations in the “unhealthy for sensitive groups” range on the Air Quality Index (AQI). 

On Air Quality Advisory days, everyone can help reduce ozone formation by taking the following actions:

  • Take the bus, carpool, bike, or walk instead of drive.
  • Refuel your vehicle after 8 p.m.; do not top off when refueling and tighten the gas cap.
  • Do not idle your vehicle; exhaust contributes considerably to ozone formation.
  • Combine trips or eliminating unnecessary vehicle trips.
  • Keep your vehicle maintained with properly inflated tires and timely oil changes.
  • Avoid use of gasoline-powered lawn equipment on Air Quality Advisory days.
  • Avoid use of oil-based paints and stains on Air Quality Advisory days.
  • Never burning leaves or other yard trimmings.
  • Suspend use of fire pits, campfires and charcoal grills on Air Quality Advisory days.
  • Conserve electricity by turning out lights and unplugging unused appliances and electronics.

Happy Friday!
