Material Handling

80/20 T-slot aluminum profiles and parts create efficiencies through ergonomic material handling solutions that fit your processes and people, rather than forcing you to conform to static, pre-built options. An 80/20 custom application allows you to adapt and respond immediately to your changing needs.

For Complex Processes

The complexity of managing the movement, storage, protection and control of materials and products throughout the manufacturing, distribution, consumption, and disposal lifecycle requires evolving resources. You’re challenged with finding more efficient, productive, and adaptable ways to complete these tasks.

Ergonomic & Safe

Increasingly, material-handling activities are taking on a strategic role and aiding in the reduction of inventory and the improvement of cycle times. These strategic goals must be balanced with ergonomic and safety initiatives in order to increase efficiencies and reduce the risk of injury.

Material Handling Made Easy

With 80/20 T-slot profiles and parts you can create customized carts, workstations, conveyors, and more, that are designed around your parameters. 80/20’s system provides a wide product offering to accommodate all of your material handling needs. Options are available in both fractional and metric measurements, ensuring easy integration with existing equipment.

Material handling applications tailored to your workforce can help increase productivity by up to 25% through improved attendance and reductions in damage to product and equipment.


Custom Applications = Savings

The case for custom material handling solutions is straightforward. Lean resources, such as personalized workstations and storage units, help reduce costs and increase productivity:

  • Reduce floor space by up to 60%
  • Recognize almost 25% faster order picking
  • Experience as much as 47% reduction in labor costs

What’s more, the preventative aspect is just as compelling. Consider that 60% of all workers’ compensation claims are associated with manual material handling tasks, or that about 291 million workdays are lost in the United States every year from back pain!


Integrated Assets

T-slot profiles are lightweight yet strong and you can mount components directly to your application. Add a computer monitor to your workstation, run cables and wires through the profile channel in a tool cart, or incorporate a camera mount to an inventory rack.

As requirements, employees, and products change over time, you can quickly accommodate them. 80/20 products are modular and reconfigurable. This allows you to increase usable space, capacity, and throughput, and maximize storage to create a lean, ergonomic work environment.
