AND ACCESSORIES AT ATX WEST 2010
Rapid delivery of structural Aluminum Extrusions in a wide range of profiles and finish options, plus a complete line of brackets and accessories, provides product OEMs with design flexibility, faster assembly and time-to-market.
USA, Inc., a subsidiary of Misumi Corporation, part of Misumi Group,
Inc. (TOKYO: 9962) announces that the company will
highlight its structural Aluminum Extrusions and Accessories at ATX West 2010
Misumi's Aluminum Extrusions are used in the design and assembly of workstation and machine safety guards, cabinets, enclosures, light machine bases, robotic jigs and fixtures, and display equipment. In addition, they are often used in the automotive, medical device and other industries for the manufacture of industrial and consumer products.
For example, Excitron Corporation of Boulder, Colorado, specified lightweight yet rigid Aluminum Extrusions for its recently launched Motorized Rotary Table with Z-Lift , a versatile and cost-effective work table used to automate activities such as laser marking, hot stamping, drilling and machining.
Vern Bunch, Excitron's CEO and chief engineer, notes that selection of Misumi's Aluminum Extrusions and other components "...saved time and money for Excitron at the engineering end. In addition, with Misumi's rapid delivery times, we were able to bring the new product to market faster than anticipated."
For manufacturers and assemblers, additional advantages of Misumi's Aluminum Extrusions include:
· Choice of Surface Finishes. Depending on product selection, surface finish options may include: Standard Clear Anodized, Black Anodized, Clear Anodized Acrylic-Coated, and an all-new Yellow Powder Coated Finish.
· Machining Options. Customers can specify aluminum machining alterations and even specify mounting hole types and locations in 0.5mm increments, without the need for manufacturing drawings, so extrusions arrive precisely sized and ready to assemble.
· Convenient One-Stop Shopping. Misumi offers a wide range of Aluminum Extrusions and complete line of in-stock assembly components, such as joints, brackets, end caps, fitting nuts and fastening screws, as well as auxiliary accessories such as rollers, sliders, curtains, bases and casters. All at competitive price points and with rapid delivery times.
