Misumi introduces MSA Series Actuators

ISUMI USA, a subsidiary of MISUMI Corporation, part of MISUMI Group, introduced its new MSA Series Belt Drive Actuators, a versatile addition to the company’s comprehensive line of linear motion components used in the assembly of industrial machinery and factory automation systems.

Designed to optimize performance and reliability at a modest cost, the MSA Series Actuators can be configured to carry loads up to 227kg (500 lbs), with travel speeds ranging from 1200 to 10,000 mm/sec, and standard lengths up to 6.25 meters, with custom lengths upon request. The pulleys used in the MSA Series actuators are nickel-plated for durability and corrosion protection, and feature precision-machined one-piece steel construction and an integral shaft for superior strength. The tough timing belts are made of specialty steel cords molded into highly flexible polyurethane material to protect against damage and deformation.

MISUMI offers a line-up of eight standard MSA Belt Drive Actuators, with selection depending on each user’s specific application requirements, as well as a full line of accessories that include motor mounts, gearboxes and sensor kits for the MSA Series systems.

The new MSA Series Belt Drive Actuators significantly expand MISUMI’s linear actuator line-up, which includes the popular LX Series single or multi-axis system; the KU Series electric, manual or pneumatic stage system; and the RS Series, a multi-position, programmable robot system that combines the actuator, controller and cables in a matched assembly.
