70,000 standard parts, plus customisation and CAD

Europe's machine building and medical device industries are operating in a rapidly changing environment that is rife with challenges as well as opportunities. Due the commercial links between the UK/Ireland and the USA, design engineers and managers are increasingly finding themselves working on projects with colleagues worldwide.

Misumi found that with these growing operations, sourcing, designing and shipping logistics for components is one of the key areas where engineers find problems due to time delays, logistics and the negative aspects of using multitude component suppliers. It is for these reasons that Misumi is currently expanding its European operations in the UK and Germany to meet its customers' needs.

Misumi Corporation has subsidiaries worldwide and can ship to any country. Its components are standard for all subsidiaries and the company uses the same logistics expertise that changed the production lines of many manufacturing companies - by using similar expertise as the infamous JIT and Kaizan practices.

Standard and customised

Misumi components come in either standard or customised form. Using Misumi's extensive Factory Automation catalogue, engineers can source over 70,000 components. Made to Misumi's renowned precision quality, the components can be specified by material, dimensional specifications, surface treatments and special machined requirements.

Misumi stainless steel components are suitable for machinery used in medical or clean room environments. It is here that engineers can specify a particular materials, enhanced seals or perhaps oil-free or low-greased type components to suit their application. If, however, it is a cost-effective standard item that is required, Misumi can meet these needs as well. The catalogue comes in printed or online form, so request yours today.

Misumi components are based around the following mechanical categories: linear and rotary motion; locating components; and general machine accessories. These categories cover most eventualities but, if you are working on a design and cannot find a suitable component or are unsure of how to specify Misumi's codes, you can supply a drawing or contact any of the company's experienced sales staff to help solve your mechanical design problem.

CAD files

Another area that is fundamental to the design of industrial products is CAD. A multitude of CAD packages is available, each with its individual benefits. As any designer knows, when considering the time that is involved in the creation of 3D models, a component will have hidden costs that are not displayed on any invoice. Misumi has now improved its collaboration with Web2cad and Power Parts and is currently redesigning its online design portal for all Misumi components. Compatible with industry-standard CAD packages, Misumi component drawing files can be specified and inserted directly into the user's chosen system. Available online or via a CAD CD, the Misumi portal is becoming a preferred design hub for all mechanical components. Soon Misumi will be offering a design service where the engineer can select all mechanical requirements of components and send the particular request direct to the subsidiary, thereby creating a speedy, competitive quotation.
