Misumi is publishing its Mechanical Components for Assembly Automation 2011/2012 catalogue in two volumes. The previous catalogue was adapted from the Japanese original, but the new version has been adapted to suit the European market. Users will find it contains a wide range of new products for their local market, plus the company has increased stocks in its central warehouse so that it can offer faster deliveries for many products.
There has been a clear and substantial improvement; with immediate effect, the extensive Misumi main catalogue Mechanical Components for Assembly Automation 2011/2012 will be published in two volumes. A customer survey carried confirmed that, at nearly 3000 pages long, the size of the previous catalogue was a problem. As well as dividing the catalogue into two volumes, Misumi has added a further 100 pages to cater for the new products, and has used thicker paper to improve legibility.
The range of products has been extended to include 2546 new items. Furthermore, extra configuration options are available for 784 products, such as additional shaft diameters, increased lengths, and models with alternative tolerances. They have been added to the catalogue, which is now divided into 58 chapters. The structure of the catalogue has mostly been retained, including the image index at the beginning and an overview of each new product group. The tried-and-tested colour-coding system for individual chapters has also been included, helping readers to find information quickly.
Misumi has specially adapted its product range to the needs of the European market and, in addition to other changes, has reduced the price of products that are in particularly high demand. Delivery costs have been reduced for a total of 2165 components. Stocks at the central warehouse near Frankfurt am Main (Germany) have been boosted considerably, meaning shorter delivery times can be offered for around 720 products. Misumi will make many products available for assembly within two days if they are being shipped domestically.
The printed version of the 2011/2012 edition is available in English, German, French, Italian and Czech.
