Misumi USA will exhibit a range of mechanical components for motion control, assembly and factory automation applications at this year’s Design and Manufacturing Midwest Expo in Rosemont, Illinois.

The company, which will be found in Booth 2817, will showcase a range of products targeted at machine building original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and automation system design engineers.

Misumi will unveil its LX Series linear actuator line extensions, including actuators with a reverse parallel motor or a motor wrap to satisfy space-saving requirements.

No design time is required – the LX Series can be configured to precise specifications and standardised for fast, straightforward reordering.

The company will also demonstrate its KU Series actuator line extensions, including nine new standardised types of precision-class, single-axis KU actuators.

The Misumi air control linear guide module, which will be unveiled at the expo, can handle heavy-load transfer, comes in several styles and offers high flexibility combined with economical pricing.

In addition, the company’s configurable automotive-style locating pins and holders, available in six styles, were developed specifically for automotive industry OEMs.

The Gates Powergrip GT Belt Series has been added to Misumi’s line of timing pulleys and belts.

This offers shaft bore machining and surface treating options.

Other products on show will include compact and cost-saving on-off switchable magnet blocks with three-sided attraction.

Used primarily in assembly applications, the magnet blocks are about a third of the size of some units.

Misumi plans to showcase its factory frame joints in five new styles – a significant line expansion to simplify the assembly of the company’s aluminium extrusions, which are available in a range of profiles, styles and sizes.

New accessories designed for use in assembling factory-floor carts, pallets and/or shelving will also be shown; built with Misumi aluminium extrusions, they include adjustable-height floor stoppers and skid-proof nuts.
