Ocean Optics Announces New OEM Engineering Team
Dunedin, FL (September 1, 2009) – To better serve its growing global OEM business, Ocean Optics, the industry leader in miniature photonics, has formed a dedicated OEM engineering group. This group provides expert integration support to optimize and expedite the commercialization efforts of both new and established OEM customers. These services are extended to all OEMs whether they contract directly with Ocean Optics, or purchase through local distribution channels.
The OEM team brings together expertise across disciplines, including PhD level optical and biochemistry engineering; physics; electrical engineering; mechanical engineering; and software development. With extensive experience in optical design and applications such as blood chemistry analysis, the team is poised to address any mechanical, software, optical, or electronic integration need.
The company’s vertically integrated product line enables the OEM team to offer complete system design capability for OEMs from supply of fiber assemblies and light sources, to coatings and sample holders. This is especially useful for OEMs with limited resources, and has proven very time- and cost-effective for OEMs requiring a fast track solution.
Ocean Optics provides integrated system and sub-system manufacturing, inventory control of customer owned material, lean manufacturing practices such as Kanban releases for JIT shipment, and is ISO 9001:2008 certified. The company currently ships close to 20,000 spectrometers per year with the capacity to more than double that amount.
