MISUMI Europe has developed a product life calculation software that can be used to assess and design the pre-finished LX and KU series linear units. The new online tool can be used via the MISUMI homepage.
MISUMI is not only expanding its product range, but also its spectrum of services on the Internet. Following on from the Part Number Checker for testing the accuracy of individually generated item/part numbers, the MISUMI 24/7 eCommerce solution and selection software for Slide guides(Slide Guide Finder), www.misumi-europe.com now features an online tool for calculating the product life of linear units.
After selecting the appropriate series—only the LX, KUA and KUH series can be calculated at the moment—users can choose the required unit from the drop-down menus, enter the base length and number of carriages, and specify the assembly requirements. The second step involves entering the service conditions with details such as maximum allowable stroke, the maximum speed and acceleration/deceleration time.
The user then receives a summary with the assessment results and a PDF report available to download. In the event of any discrepancies, a corresponding message appears immediately on every processing screen, so that entries can be changed/corrected accordingly at any time.
