T-slots Aluminum Structural Framing

T-slots Aluminum Extrusion

T-Slotted aluminum extrusion

The concept behind the T-Slotted aluminum extrusion is to make assembly of structures faster and easier than using welded steel. That’s because the main component of the system is the TSLOTS design: insert a T-Nut and fastener into a T-Slot and tighten. It’s that simple. No welding or grinding required. All you need to tighten your TSLOTS design is a few simple hand tools. When you are done, you have a durable, strong, lightweight structure that’s functional and attractive. The high-strength extruded aluminum profiles have a clear and black anodize surface that is scratch and corrosion resistant. Your structure never needs painting and is maintenance free.

Our extrusion line of TSLOTS suits small and large applications. There are three main extrusion series we offer: Fractional extrusions consist of 10 Series and 15 Series. Metric extrusions consist of 20 Series and 40 Series. And our B-Series consists of 20, 30 & 45 Series that are compatible with Bosch Extrusions.

COMPATIBILITY

Compatibility is a big deal, we know that! That’s why we’ve made it a point to ensure all of our extrusions and hardware are compatible with all other major suppliers.

Any existing guarding or frames that need updating, we can help! With compatibility across multiple suppliers, you’ll be able to use our profiles and not have to worry about fit or function!

ALUMINUM ALLOY

An aluminum extrusion alloy is a predetermined mixture of one or more elements together with aluminum to be heated and hydraulically pressed through an extrusion die. Some common elements alloyed with aluminum include copper, magnesium, manganese, chromium, silicon, iron, nickel and zinc.

TSLOTS extrusions use the 6560 or equivalent alloy. In addition to aluminum, the major alloying elements for this alloy include: Mg .25-.45% and Si .35-.8%.

ANODIZING

Anodizing is an electrochemical process that thickens and toughens the naturally occurring protective oxide. The resulting finish makes a corrosion resistant extrusion. TSLOTS extrusions have an acid etch anodize finish that is .4-.6 mil. thick. And the anodize is a Type 2 Sulfuric.
