When searching for the right product, it is sometimes helpful to browse a catalogue in paper form. The MISUMI WEBINDEX is much more compact and clearer than our old two-volume catalogue. Read our blog to discover how to find your desired product simply by using WEBINDEX and configure it online.
Are you looking for inspiration for a new application? You don’t always have to reinvent the wheel. Benefit from existing applications that have been tested and function reliably. Here are five examples for applications with linear shafts.
Industry 4.0 or Industrial IoT (IIoT) is getting more and more into the production sites. The aim is to create an error resistant process for high quality production, reduce downtime and avoid costs. As Machine-to-Machine communication is not starting automatically, it needs people and solutions to make it work. Let us show you how we approach it.
One of the positioning techniques consists of magnifying the workpiece under a microscope for positioning and aligning the reference lines on the workpiece with the reference lines in an optical instrument (microscope in this case) (cursor lines in the eyepiece of the microscope). This is typically applicable to positioning of a magnetic sensor gap. In this method, the state of positioning becomes hard to see when the cursor lines in the microscope and the reference lines on the workpiece are aligned with each other. However, improvement in the design of cursor lines makes the state of positioning easier to identify even at higher magnifications.
Positioning technology is used as a technical term when it comes to fixing components in different axes. But not everyone is aware of what this all entails. Positioning in its simplest form is the simple securing of a workpiece for further processing in order to reproduce industrial processes in a consistent and repeatable manner. The introduction of basic methods, such as tensioning or clamping devices, is the basis for efficient assembly and production lines. Learn about the most important basics of positioning technology in the first part of our series "Engineer to Engineer" and follow the MISUMI YouTube channel:

There are a variety of coatings for surfaces: burnishing, chrome plating, anodising or electroplating with nickel - in addition to these current techniques for surface treatment, MISUMI Europa GmbH offers further coating methods for components from the extensive product range with advantages for a wide variety of applications.
Optimise your processes by using standardised components according to the DIN standard. DIN standards not only create efficiencies in terms of time and uniformity, but they also help you generate cost savings.
The NAAMS standard (North American Automotive Metric Standard) was established by the automotive manufacturers Chrysler, Ford and General Motors as well as Dayton Progress (a subsidiary of MISUMI). The NAAMS standard defines components which are used for body-in-white production. The goal of this initiative is to generate time and costs savings. Find out more at www.naamsstandards.org.
You will find an overview of our cost efficient products with detailed technical specifications and savings in the MISUMIWEBINDEX or in the following overview. Simply click on the picture of your desired product and you will be forwarded to the product in our online shop where you will find detailed information.
What do you associate with linear technology, first and foremost? As a manufacturer, one first thinks of pick&place, positioning and diagnostics applications. The principle of linear motion is also to be found very frequently in everyday life, however, for instance in rail vehicles, kitchen drawers and sliding doors. But despite the vast variety of applications, the basic characteristics of linear technology are clear: a low friction guide and the possibility to accept cross-loads without deformation. When you're looking for a linear system for your application, these are things you should be looking for.
