Machine Building & Medical Device Manufacturing Innovations For European Design Engineers.
03 November 2006
Europe’s medical device and machine building industry is operating in a rapidly changing environment rife with challenges as well as opportunities. Companies are experiencing European Growth in their home and neighbouring countries creating the industrial links and commercial growth between the ever-growing infrastructures of Europe. Due the commercial links between Ireland and the US Design engineers and managers find them selves working with colleagues Worldwide on projects where as before, simply working on the nearer, smaller picture.
Misumi found that with these growing operations, sourcing, designing and the shipping logistics of components is one of the key areas that engineers find problems due to time delay, logistics and considering the negatives of using a multitude of component suppliers. It is for these reasons Misumi are currently expanding our European operations in the UK & Germany to meet our customers needs.
Misumi Corporation has subsidiaries worldwide and can ship to any country. Our components are standard for all subsidiaries and we use the same logistics expertise that changed the productions lines of many manufacturing companies by using similar expertise as the infamous JIT & Kaizan theories.
Misumi components come in either standard or customised form. Using our extensive Factory Automation catalogue, Engineers will find over 70,000 components to fulfil their total component solutions. Made to Misumi’s renowned precision quality, the components can be specified by material, dimensional specifications, surface treatments and special machined requirements. Available in stainless steel, Misumi components are suitable for the strict guidelines set when designing or using machinery used in a medical or clean room environment. It is here that the engineer can specify a particular material, enhanced seals or perhaps oil free or low greased type component to suit their application. If however it is a cost effective standard item that’s required, Misumi can meet these needs also. The catalogue comes in hard back or online form so request yours today.
Misumi components are based around the following mechanical categories: Linear & Rotary Motion, Locating Components and General machine accessories. Within these categories we hope to be able to supply to your every need but if you are working on a design and cannot find the suitable component or are unsure of how to specify our codes, you can send over a drawing or contact any of our experienced sales staff to help solve your mechanical solution.
Another area that is foundation in any design of industrial products is CAD. A multitude of CAD packages are available each with their individual benefits. As any designer will know when considering the time that’s involved in the creation of 3D models, a component will have hidden costs that are not displayed on any invoice. Misumi have now improved our collaboration with Web2cad & Power parts and are currently redesigning our online design portal for all Misumi components. Compatible with industry wide CAD packages, Misumi components can be specified and inserted directly into your chosen system. Available online or via CAD cd, the misumi portal is becoming the preferred design hub for all mechanical components. Soon we will be offering a design service where the engineer can select all mechanical requirements of components and send the particular request direct to the subsidiary creating a speedy competitive quotation.

Misumi will also be exhibiting at the forthcoming Medtec Ireland 2005 show. Here we will be giving demonstrations of our benefits and applications to all Misumi Irish current customers and visitors to the show.
