Misumi USA, Inc. reports that electronic product manufacturers have found a wide range of applications for the company's low-cost standard precision positioning stages. These stages combine streamlined functionality with precision levels acceptable for a great many automation-related applications - at prices 20 to 50 percent lower than typical high precision positioning devices. They offer an effective and practical solution wherever there is a need to make small positioning adjustments in the assembly, inspection and processing instruments and jigs used in the production of consumer and industrial electronics. Properly installed, the stages allow fine adjustments in 0.01 mm increments. These adjustments can be performed quickly and easily, even by non-technical personnel, resulting in higher productivity and faster throughput with fewer errors - whatever the application or process.
A majority of Misumi's standard precision positioning stages ship in just three days. The stages are designed and engineered to provide adequate levels of precision relative to straightness, parallelism, and parallelism of motion, making them a cost-effective choice over more costly and sophisticated high precision positioning stages. These stages will be featured at this year's Design and Manufacturing Midwest show, September 20-22, in Chicago. Machine building OEMs and automation system design engineers can learn more about these new products at Misumi's booth number 2108.
