Machine Framing

In today’s marketplace, it’s crucial that equipment and operations are lean and efficient. Your machine frames can either aid in these initiatives or be a hindrance to them. With 80/20 T-slot aluminum profiles and products the frame becomes a part of your process, helping to create streamlined systems.

More Than a Frame

80/20 T-slot aluminum framing offers durability and strength comparable to steel, but without the corrosive properties and heavy assembly and maintenance costs. Consider the automotive industry’s switch from heavy steel frames to lightweight and strong aluminum. Aluminum offers a faster, safer, environmentally friendly and cost-effective solution. Our unique two-degree drop-lock feature provides connections that are strong and vibration resistant.

Integrate Your Machine

With T-slot profiles and parts you can integrate cables, automation components, computer monitors, and safety devices anywhere along the T-slot frame. Add tools where they can best optimize your operations. What’s more; it’s simple to make adjustments as you need to move, add, fix, or make changes to the parts. Steel options can’t provide this level of flexibility.
