Omron’s history spans over 85 years. Founded as an electromechanical company, thanks to the brilliance and determination of its inventor, it is based on the passion for quality. A total commitment, which materializes in the production and development of products, but also in other areas. From support, to shipping and after-sales service, and the choice of partners and materials to fit your products.
Omron is known today for its innovative-automation! concept, the new approach for flexible production lines of the future. We have over 50 years of experience in relay development and pays particular attention to research and the selection of components and materials. Thanks to this level of attention, the quality of our relays is recognized by customers all over the world and we sell 25 relays every second, 24/7, adding up to 800 million relays per year.
The same attention to quality applies also when it comes to selecting the right relay labels and printers to complement Omron products. The relay labels must comply with European standards, such as the identification required for the CE mark, EN 60204-1, the standard that aims to ensure safety and the consistency of control response, as well as ease of maintenance. To continue to best meet the needs of panel builders, Omron has joined forces with Cembre, a leading supplier of labeling systems.
Cembre offers a complete range of products for the industrial labeling of cables, pipes, terminal boards, push-button panels, components and control panels. Founded in 1969, Cembre produces its products in its ultra-modern factory in Brescia, Italy, and operates directly through four branches in Europe, located in the United Kingdom, France, Spain and Germany.
"In addition to offering our customers the most suitable printers and label sheets, we provide our customers with effective and fast after-sales service and technical assistance," Giacomo Job, Product Manager for Marking Systems at Cembre states. “Our extensive know-how in the field of identification and labeling systems and electrical connectors, continuous R&D activity and timely innovation in manufacturing technologies and product specification, allow us to quickly respond to an increasingly demanding market expectation for high-quality products that are reliable, durable and safe.”
As part of the partnership, Omron now recommends to its customers the high-resolution thermal transfer printer MARKINGenius MG3 with a plug-and-play USB port and Cembre's print media to produce labels with high print quality for identifying Omron terminal blocks, relays and components for all electrical panels - in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. MARKINGenius MG3 is an easy and intuitive marking system, designed to meet the identification needs in the electrical field, and guarantees superior quality and lasting print quality.
"The solutions of Cembre and Omron are highly complementary and together we can make the difference for our customers, thanks to the synergy that we can offer. Thanks to this commercial co-operation, we allow panel builders to implement harmonized and easy-to-use labeling for relays for our Value Design panel solutions in order to guarantee quality and reliability, in compliance with industry standards ", stated Manuela Mazza, Product Marketing Manager for Switching Components at Omron Europe. "We are improving panel design, their production processes and the human interaction with them, through product innovation, wiring techniques and technologies - and now also thanks to harmonized relay labels - to make the production of control panels simpler and more efficient ”.
