Omron Scientific Technologies, Inc. introduces the OEM Partnership Program. Program partners benefit from an expedited test and evaluation process from Omron STI that quickly gets the best safety product for a given application into the design engineer's hands for evaluation, and at no cost to the OEM. Program partners will also benefit from the assistance of a local Omron STI Area Sales Engineer, as well as factory-based application engineering and product management teams, who are trained to help OEMs understand and comply with all relevant standards for machine safety, ensuring successful machine designs. "Machine designers often spend a fair amount of time tracking down the right test and evaluation unit, filling out paperwork, waiting for credit reports, and hoping for favorable test results. Omron STI can expedite the entire test and evaluation process by getting the best safety product for an application into the engineer's hands for evaluation fast and free, all with a simple phone call or email," says Tony Canonaco, vice president, sales, Omron STI. "When OEMs partner with Omron STI, they not only benefit from the speed and convenience of getting the proper machine safeguard, they'll also get peace of mind knowing that their machine design will be safeguarded correctly to all current standards and will be 100 percent compliant." Omron STI is a one-stop resource for any machine safeguarding need. With the OEM Partnership Program, Omron STI provides the test and evaluation products that machine builders are looking for, as well as the application engineering expertise to help them maximize design efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
