MISUMI’S INNOVATIVE WEB SERVICES HELP MACHINE DESIGNERS SAVE TIME, INCREASE EFFICIENCY AND PRODUCTIVITY

MISUMI USA, Inc., a subsidiary of MISUMI Corporation, part of MISUMI Group, Inc., will highlight two recently introduced Web services at the Design & Manufacturing Midwest show in Chicago, September 20-22.

Schaumburg, IL ― MISUMI USA, Inc., a subsidiary of MISUMI Corporation, part of MISUMI Group, Inc., will highlight two recently introduced Web services at the Design & Manufacturing Midwest show in Chicago, September 20-22.


Both online services were developed to facilitate the process of selecting, specifying and ordering a number of components the firm supplies to OEMs and designers of industrial machinery and factory automation equipment and systems. During the show, MISUMI product engineers will offer live demonstrations of both new services - the Modular Assembler, and AutomationMaterials.com - at Booth Number 2108.

Here is a snapshot of the new Web services:

AutomationMaterials.com is an easy-to-use resource designed to streamline and simplify selection, quoting and ordering of MISUMI's extensive line of Precision Machined Metal Plates used in the assembly of industrial machinery and factory automation systems. The precision-machined blank plates are available in over 30 different materials and can be ordered in sizes ranging from 20mm to 2,500mm, with dimensions configured to within 0.1mm. Prices are low, there is no minimum order requirement, and delivery is fast - most plates ship in just four days.

MISUMI's Modular Assembler Website provides fast, easy design of frequently used component combinations. The site groups together various functional parts frequently used in machine designs and offers them in conveniently packaged modules. This modular approach significantly reduces time and effort required to select and specify common sets of mechanical components, and offers customers fast 2D and 3D CAD downloads and Web ordering. About 46 modules are currently available for use in Rotary/Linear Motion, Positioning/Detecting, Retention, and Connection applications. Engineering, design assistance and technical support are readily available to users if needed.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
