What makes Musashi fluid dispensers highly reliable

Posted by Ryutaro Izumi on Jul 11, 2017 8:14:00 AM

At Izumi International, we’re proud to be official distributors of Musashi Engineering automated dispensing equipment. Musashi is the largest fluid dispenser manufacturer in Japan, and their wide line of dispensing products are frequently used in Asia’s electronics manufacturing industry—an industry that demands high-precision applications.

Why do we favor Musashi dispenser products over brands that are better known in the U.S.? There are several important reasons:  


Engineering expertise

Musashi Engineering, Inc. was established in 1978, giving them nearly 40 years of experience in the automation world.

But it’s not just longevity that matters here. Nearly half of Musashi’s 700 employees have an engineering background, meaning product design, development, and testing are all done with an expert eye.

Robotunits Extruded Aluminum Framing Spotted in Action

Posted by Emily Park on May 26, 2017 8:17:53 AM

In previous posts, we’ve discussed the strength and efficiency of extruded aluminum framing for mounting robots and other manufacturing equipment. We noted its strength when it came to bearing weight, but there’s another aspect to consider as well.

Several months ago we were at a trade show and saw a Robotunits aluminum frame in use. Representatives from ABB had set up a demonstration of their FlexPicker robot on the exhibition floor, and they relied on a Robotunits aluminum frame for the display. See the video we shot below:

3 Advantages of Aluminum Extrusion Frames Over Welded Steel

Posted by Emily Park on Dec 12, 2016 8:20:34 AM


Whether you’re setting up automation equipment for a large assembly line or a workstation for a single employee, chances are you’ll need a metal framework to mount robotic parts, dispensers, or other automated assembly equipment. Many plant owners choose traditional welded steel structures for their strength and permanence. However, aluminum extrusion frames are also gaining in popularity, and for several good reasons.

Aluminum extrusion frames are a modular solution, consisting of bars of extruded aluminum with a unique T-slot design. A set of specialized connectors allow the purchaser to construct whatever structure he or she needs.
