Hands-On Amatrol Training Setup

Installation of Amatrol’s Mechatronics training equipment under way at the Scince park of Sunyani Technical University. “Amatrol’s Mechatronics training equipment uses industry standard components to recreate the industrial environment in the classroom, which aids learners in being job-ready by.”

Hands-On Amatrol Training Setup

Modern industry utilizes complex production systems to produce high-quality, economical products for an ever demanding world. Amatrol’s Mechatronics training programs teach systems-level thinking and industrial automation skill-building that prepares learners to for mechatronics operation, hands-on PLC programming, and industrial maintenance and problem solving for real-world manufacturing environments. With the proliferation of automation technology, mechatronics is one of the fastest growing technical education programs in the world. Many technologies are integrated to make these sophisticated production systems including mechanical, electrical, electronics, and software.

In order to meet this vital industry demand, Amatrol has developed both a large scale mechatronics line and a portable, tabletop mechatronics training system, each with highly interactive eLearning mechatronics courses. Each of these systems is comprised of individual stations that can be purchased separately when mechatronics training is necessary but budgets must be observed or all together to form a total learning experience. This training experience can apply to various careers such as mechatronics engineer / technician, automation engineer / technician, and systems engineer / technician.

Industrial Components and Safety

Amatrol’s Mechatronics training equipment uses industry standard components to recreate the industrial environment in the classroom, which aids learners in being job-ready by.

Safety in an industrial setting is critical. Amatrol’s Mechatronics Systems teach learners standard industrial practices and methods that support a safe workplace. On the full-size mechanical system, emergency stop circuits meet industrial standards as does the real world operator panel. Learners study the importance of lockout / tagout and procedures for correct machine start-up, shut-down, and emergency stop operation.

Wide Array of Advanced Technology

Amatrol’s Mechatronics training equipment cover a broad array of applications across a balance of mechanical, electrical, electronics, fluid power and software to enable learners to work effectively in virtually any industrial setting. As an example, the full-size mechatronics system includes eight types of electronic sensors, three types of electrical motors, four types of pneumatic actuators and 20 different mechanical power transmission components.

  2. Salancrete Building Blocks From A Mixture Of Sand, Laterite And Cement For Sustainable Housing Construction In Ghana

    This paper assesses the suitability of Salancrete block – mixture of sand, laterite and cement – for urban housing delivery in Ghana. Three Salancrete blocks were moulded from four lateritic soil samples obtained from Fiapre, Magazine, Kotokrom and S-Poly, all in the Sunyani Municipality. Also, three blocks each were moulded for sandcrete and landcrete (laterite and cement), using 10% cement content in each case. The 28-day compressive strength values were 5.76, 3.78 and 3.09 N/mm2 for Salancrete, Sandcrete and Landcrete respectively. It was concluded that combining laterite and sand will produce a more suitable block input for sustainable housing delivery in Ghana.

  3. Towards A Sustainable Ceramic Industry In Ghana: An Assessment Of The Working Environment Using Five Forces Industrial Model

    This paper discussed ceramics as an industry that is capable of improving Ghana’s economy and providing direct and indirect employment, and penetrating the international market. The working environments of the companies within the local industry were analysed using the Porter’s Five Forces Industrial Model which revealed that the Ghanaian Ceramic Companies are competitively weak in the areas of exports, and not able to compete favourably with new entrants, although, strong in the area of raw materials and resource inputs. Study showed that the challenges within the industry can be nipped in the bud if academia, industry and government work indivisibly.
