Ron Sully - Director of Marketing 

January 2015  
The Medical Design and Manufacturing Show in Anaheim  is the one place you can meet all of the vendors and manufacturers who can take your medical device to the next level. If you need to source the right supplier or consultant, this is the show to attend. Use code GV for free admission to the MD&M West Show in Anaheim this February.

We'll be there every day to answer your product development questions, and discuss how we can make your next project a success.                                     

We are in Hall D, booth 2582

The same place as last year (and the year before), on the Food Court aisle.

Ron, Earl, Paul, Brad, and Kathryn will be there to answer your questions.  


Since 1984 we have been solving Design and Engineering Challenges for start-up companies, medium-sized firms, and large corporations throughout the U.S. and Western Europe.


Omnica's role as a design and engineering resource ranges from supplementary services provider to principle technical asset.  

Most of our customers are referrals, or have depended on us to develop their new products for many years. If you haven't worked with us before, we would like to show you how our personnel, management, and resources can exceed your product development expectations.

The Dust Free Zone  Cleanrooms are facilities are usually found in scientific research and electronics manufacturing facilities. They are special rooms that filter the air to remove environmental contamination like dust, hair, skin cells, fibers, and microbes. During the production process, even minute particles can ruin silicon microchips and foul precision optics. It is unusual for a company like ours to need a cleanroom, but some of the implantable devices and optical-based prototypes we develop require assembly in areas free of airborne contamination.  


Air in the room is filtered and recirculated through a high-efficiency particulate air filter (HEPA) once every minute. These filters can remove particles many times smaller than those that can be seen with the naked eye. Cleanroom classifications range from 1 to 9. Class 1 facilities contain no more than one airborne micro-particle per cubic foot. Ours is a Class 7 cleanroom (also called a Class 10,000), about 100 times cleaner than the air in a typical urban environment, which is considered Class 9. 

Everyone who enters the room is required to wear a "bunny suit", a synthetic white garment made of chemically treated material that won't shed fibers. Booties and a very attractive hair net complete the uniform to make a memorable fashion statement.

It's not the year of the fish, but I couldn't find a good picture of a sheep for this year's calendar. On your calendar, the artist who created the paper fish can be found below the image. If you email her first name, I'll send you a Starbucks gift card. Make the best use of it by reading
when to drink coffee for maximum effectiveness.
