April 18, 2011 (Schaumburg, IL) MISUMI USA, Inc., a subsidiary of MISUMI Corporation, part of MISUMI Group, Inc. (TOKYO: 9962), today announced that its new Website: www.AutomationMaterials.com has gone live. The innovative and easy-to-use online service is designed to streamline and simplify selection, quoting and ordering of Precision Machined Metal Plates used in the assembly of industrial machinery and factory automation systems.
David Basken, Product Manager - FA Elements for MISUMI USA, states: "The AutomationMaterials.com site offers tremendous time and cost savings for purchasers, engineers, and tool rooms. Instead of the laborious process of squaring and cleaning up metal plates from raw materials, they can now obtain a precision metal blank, quoted within 10 seconds and ordered in minutes. The precision machined blanks are available at low prices and are delivered quickly, ready to incorporate into downstream manufacturing and assembly processes with no leftover scraps or remnants. For machinery OEMs, this means more efficient production, faster order fulfillment, and better customer service. "
Key advantages of ordering MISUMI's Precision Machined Metal Plates include:
o Large material selection with over 30 different metals available, including Carbon Steel, Tool Steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Copper, and more.
o Top quality precision machined blanks with fully configurable dimensions to within increments of 0.1 mm, in sizes ranging from 20mm to 2,500 mm, including challenging sizes (e.g., very thin, very small, or extremely narrow).
o Most blanks are precision machined on duplex mills, so flatness and parallelism are superior, and most plates are precision squared to 15Ám/100mm, guaranteed every time. Full corner cut and chamfering options are also available. Plate surfaces can be milled, rotary ground or surface ground on user-specified surfaces, up to 6 sides.
o Very low prices, 10-second quotes, and quick shipping times - most plates ship in just 4 days.
