….is the number of part configurations MISUMI has, that’s 80 Sextillion, 21 zeros behind the 8. MISUMI’s configurability is its core competency and we are proud to share 5 reasons (although there’s more than 5) to love configurability.
MISUMI carries a variety of components that are cut-to-length including:
- Linear Shafts
- Linear Guides
- Metal Plates
- Ball Screws
- Locating Pins
- Aluminum Extrusion
- THK Linear Guides
2. The Best of Both Worlds
Configurability offers the best of both worlds as it combines the reliability, price, and lead times of stocked components with the design flexibilities of a custom component. With some components available with 0.001 mm increments, getting closer to your exact specifications has never been easier.
3. Surface Treatments and Finishes
Surface treatments could be specified for a number of reasons from corrosion resistance to wear resistance. MISUMI offers a variety listed below:
- Low-Temperature Black Chrome Plating
- Rainbow-Diamond Like Coating
- Electroless Nickel Plating
- Hard Chrome
- Black Oxide
- Black Anodized
- Hot Zinc
- Trivalent Chromate
- Heat Treatment
- AND MORE!
4. Multi-Dimensional Selections
Your part the way you want it. You are in charge of your dimensions. Select length, alterations, diameter, and even tolerances. Once a part is configured, you’ll get a globally recognized part number, pricing, lead time and a CAD model.
5. Save Precious Time
Components that could take weeks to manufacture/machine now take days. Reduce machine time and outsourcing. Designs are now limitless. Configurability allows engineers and designers to get to their build faster.
