With the introduction of the new Z Axis Unit, MISUMI now offers a comprehensive family of Simplified Adjustment Units, designed for manual adjustment in less demanding positioning applications. The simplified units provide an economical alternative to building or purchasing the more complex and costly precision stages often required in automated positioning applications. The MISUMI line includes Feed Screw, Push Screw and Rack & Pinion feed mechanisms, and the products are offered in a variety of axis styles.

The MISUMI Z Axis Simplified Adjustment Unit (Part Number ZKB20) is a long-stroke, scaled post, vertical travel positioning device commonly used in manufacturing and assembly plants to make up-and-down height adjustments as needed in positioning devices such as jig fixtures, cameras, sensors, spray nozzles and the like. The units can also be used for slotted hole adjustments and setup changes.

Brackets for the ZKB20 Z Axis Scaled Post Simplified Adjustment Units are sold separately so that users can select bracket types that fit each installation surface (e.g., tabletop mounts, wall mounts).
