Recently, MISUMI Europa has developed a modern tool enabling design engineers to get to grips with the extensive main catalogue "Mechanical Standard Components for Assembly Automation" even faster — a video tutorial.
Thousands of standard, purchased and custom -made mechanical parts on almost 3,000 pages — the extensive MISUMI catalogue provides relevant information on all components for design engineers. The various options for configuring the products to meet one’s needs are some of the many features which make it unique. This ensures that components can be custom-made generated and be automatically assigned with the appropriate part number. The sophisticated user-oriented options provide various advantages for design work. In order to help technicians and engineers to identify easy and quick solutions to their problems, MISUMI has placed a short film online which explains how to efficiently use the catalogue and its functions. The video, almost six minutes long, provides users with important information about the layout of the catalogue, as well as the individual pages and the symbols used within. The various configuration steps are explained in succession using a practical example from the Steel shafts for linear motion section. The resulting parameters are combined and listed in succession, thus creating the respective item number. This number can be used to find the costs for the bespoke shaft in the corresponding price table.
