Misumi USA, Inc. has announced the addition of a significant number of frequently ordered components to its distribution center in Elk Grove Village, IL, near Chicago. As the result of increasing demand for certain sizes and styles of many popular Misumi mechanical and factory automation components, more than 8,700 items have been added to the local stock, effective immediately.
A sampling of the items added to stock are: Collars, Washers, Pipes, Valves, Seals, Oil-free Bushings, Tubes, Shaft Collars, Manifold Blocks, Idler Pulleys, Rollers, Cam Followers, Timing Belts, Bearings, Bushings for Locating Pins, Single Axis Actuators, Locating Stages, Accessories for Aluminum Frames, Linear Guides, X-Axis Adjustment Units, Robot Actuators, Angle Plates, and more. These products are purchased by machine builders, designers and assemblers of factory automation and motion control systems, as well as plant managers and engineers responsible for maintaining and repairing plant floor equipment.
The effect of Misumi’s local stock increase is that a total of over 30,000 parts, which used to ship in 3 to 8 days, will now ship in one day with no increase in shipping charges. As always, MISUMI has no minimum order requirement, so this improved delivery schedule can impact the purchase of even a single component.
These reduced lead times will be reflected immediately on company’s unique and easy-to-use Web Ordering System.
