A Force in Domestic Manufacturing
Because Omega Engineering offers over 100,000 products, many customers have the erroneous impression that the company is simply a catalog house, distributing products made by others. Actually, Omega is a major manufacturer in its own right, making over 80% of the products it offers. At a time when “outsourcing“ seems to be the theme of many US manufacturers, Omega Engineering remains a notable exception.
Omega produces its own thermocouple wire at a manufacturing operation that turns out tens of millions of feet per year.
Omega is the world’s largest manufacturer of thermocouple connectors both in volume and selection. By manufacturing these parts, Omega can maintain complete control over quality, inventory, and delivery.
Omega boasts an automated probe manufacturing facility that is unequalled. Starting with coils of flat metal stock and a wide range of wire types, a highly automated production line fabricates probe sheath, with wiring enclosed, in coils which can be hundreds of feet in length. While other manufacturers make the probes individually to a specific length, Omega can make any desired length by simply cutting it from the probe coil. The temperature sensor (thermocouple or RTD) is then added to one end, leads added to the other and the unit is sealed, tested, calibrated, and ready to go.
