MISUMI Configurable Components
Why go custom when you can configure?
Farris Automated Systems (FAS) developed an ultrasonic welding and tubing cutoff machine for a biomedical plastics manufacturer. When designing and building this machine FAS was able to save time by configuring locating pins, linear shafts, linear bushings, stopper blocks, timing belts, timing pulleys and hexagonal posts using the MISUMI CAD configurator.
What is the configurable component? - The configurable component is a component that allows the engineer to specify critical dimensions through various design parameters.
