Electro-Mechanical Technician

10 May 2017

Stellarray is seeking an Electro-Mechanical Technician (EMT) to work on the development, test and production of new X-ray sources and products made of them. Stellarray’s flat panel x-ray source (FPXS) uses cathode arrays in a vacuum enclosure to make x-rays over wide areas. These sources are being made for cabinet irradiators in projects supported by the U.S. Department of Energy. The irradiators will be sold to blood banks, hospitals, biotechnology companies and universities. A second type of x-ray source uses digitally addressable x-ray spots for 3D imaging systems with no moving parts. This work is supported by NASA. Voltages on our X-ray sources range from 10 – 200 kV and input power from 0.1 – 10 kW.

Responsibilities

- Fabrication of prototype panels and their components using machine tools, glass molding and cold-working techniques, vacuum sealing processes and assembly processes
- Fabrication of test stations and jigs
- Repair and maintenance of vacuum pumps, power supplies and panel production equipment
- Preparation and operation of test stations for x-ray panels, including electrical circuit fabrication
- Data collection and documentation for the above processes to ISO standards

Qualifications

- A degree or equivalent training in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, industrial process and control or a related field
- Experience with vacuum pumps, mills, lathes, spot welding, ovens, ultrasonic cleaning and other manufacturing and research tools
- Experience with CAD, drawing and other computer programs
