Complete CAD design portal for mechanical components
03 November 2006
Misumi UK Ltd supply mechanical component solutions to worldwide engineering companies to solve their automation solutions. To aid this process Misumi have developed their CAD data facilities to provide all customers with a complete design portal for all their components. Similar to standard design software within industry, the MISUMI CAD portal goes one step further to offer over 100,000 standard or customizable Mechanical components in up to 0.01mm, all compatible with industry wide CAD packages.
Via the MISUMI website, you can reach their CAD portal easily at www.misumicad.com Using a choice of search tree, search by picture, or product terminology such as ‘Slide Guides’ or ‘Ball screws’, the user can locate their required component in seconds. Once located the designer / engineer can customise the component in up to 0.01mm using Misumi’s product coding system and download in over 15 CAD formats. With a similar layout as most CAD packages, the portal benefits easy navigational tools, wire-frame and solid-mapping component views and all the traditional toolbars to make it easier to create and review your part.
Available in both 2 & 3D format, DXF, DWG, DWF, STAT, STEP, IGES, VRML are just some of the file types available for download via the online portal. Alternatively via the Misumi CAD data cd a direct insertion facility is also available along with the above functions. What the user can do here is run both the Misumi CAD disc and their preferred CAD system and insert the component directly into their parts drawing with just a click of a button. The main benefits being the obvious no drawings required but also the direct link with your CAD package to design, check the geometry, limits and fits between the component and your model, and then redesign the component if required in a simple few steps. Some of the compatible packages are: AutoCAD, CATIA, Inventor, Mechanical Desktop, Pro-Engineer, Solidedge, Solidworks, TuboCAD and more.
Also available via the portal is an automated quotation facility where you can add the parts to a bin and send directly to Misumi sales to achieve a speedy, competitive quotation. If the user prefers the traditional catalogue methods, PDF files and the hardback catalogue can all be obtained via the misumi website, along with the CAD data cd.
Misumi can supply your total component solutions with just one catalogue. Just a small sample of the range is as follows: ballscrews, slide guides, linear shafts, linear bushings, couplings, set collars, pulleys, XY stages, locating pins, low head cap screws and even standard items such as castors, handles and washers can be achieved in days. Materials, dimensions and special machined requests can all be specified with our components.
