T-slot aluminum profiles are used in a wide array of applications and projects within the automation world, and this isn’t by coincidence. Automation has been achieved through a variety of means such as robotic, hydraulic, and pneumatic solutions. Profile systems provide both the structure and rigidity for your large machine bases, mechanical arms, fixtures, and guarding equipment as well as the precision needed for jigs, sensors, safety components, or computer system mounts.

T-slot Provides Flexibility

80/20 products provide flexibility and adaptability, allowing you to make quick and easy changes today, as well as any future modifications or retrofits. This adjustability also aids ergonomic initiatives, providing solutions tailored to your processes and personnel. Connections are strong and vibration resistant, leading to material longevity and less down time.

Increased Efficiency

Unlike other alternatives, such as prefabricated or steel assemblies, T-slot profiles provide the customization and longevity you need to save resources and create efficiencies. The T-slot channel houses wires and cables, creating a safe and integrated process for running power and pneumatics to your equipment and workstations.
