MD&M MIDWEST 2008: EXHIBITOR NEWS
Single-axis linear actuator model LX30 is offered with or without a motor bracket, with one or two short blocks, or with one or two long blocks.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary and the launch of its latest actuators, Misumi USA Inc. (Schaumburg, IL) will present a configurable component technical seminar at National Manufacturing Week, which is co-located with MD&M Midwest in Rosemont, IL. The automation component provider will use the seminar and real-world examples to demonstrate what it claims are substantial cost and time savings gained by using the company’s component-configuring program.
The seminar will demonstrate how engineers can use the online CAD configurator, accessible through the company’s Web site, to select part specifications, download native CAD files in dozens of formats, import components into their virtual assembly, and then verify and order the parts.
It will be held on Level 1 of the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Conference Center 12, which is opposite Hall A and just north of the lobby. Depending on attendance, the seminar will be presented every hour on the hour with breaks for lunch. Engineers can register for the seminar online or at the company’s booth.
Attendees will also be able to see the company’s new single-axis actuators while at the Misumi booth. The supplier’s line of actuators has been expanded to include more models and sizes of the precision linear motion components. Model LX30 features more options than previous models; it is offered with or without a motor bracket, with one or two short blocks, or with one or two long blocks. Featuring a 15- or 20-mm lead, the LX45 can come with or without a cover or motor bracket in the same block configurations as the LX30. Brackets are available on the LX-series actuators to allow a combination of two units on a different axis. The actuators are offered in a variety of configurations, including covered models that feature a choice of a flat aluminum cover or a protective bellows made from hand-sewn rubber.
In addition to actuators, the company offers linear shafts and guides, locating pins, aluminum extrusions, rollers, and more. Most of the supplier’s components are configurable using the online program and CAD files, and full product specifications can be downloaded from the company’s Web site.
