T-slots Aluminum Structural Framing

Picture for category Aluminum Structural Framing

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.

  • Twist – Twist per foot of length does not exceed .25° and total twist over 20 feet of length does not exceed 1.5°

*As an extruder, there are many other alloys that we can extrude. If your application calls for a different alloy, let us know and we can extrude it for you.

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.
