Aluminum T-slot for Jigs,Fixtures, Materials Handeling, and Machine Construction

Monday


Here is a line of industrial products I have been looking at for shop build jigs, fixtures and machine components.
I have yet to use the aluminum t-slot extrusions, but there are some very interesting possibilities.
The possible configurations are almost endless.
The aluminum rails pictures are the base of the system and are available in many shapes and sizes. The accessories available are mind boggling.
Lineal motion bearings, connector plates, clamping systems and on and on.
Some uses I have thought of are machine fences and fence rails. Assembly tables with built in clamping, a high tech work bench if you will.
I have seen examples of the aluminum extrusion used for cnc router builds. Some just for the structure and some have used the system for linear motion as well.
Shop built vertical panel saws, or router rails could be made very sturdy and highly accurate as well.
If you have a use for a specialized application I think these products could be a very useful component. With flexible assembly options and minimal machining a truly high tech, accurate and custom build machine could be created.
