These extrusions form the base structural components of any T-slot system. The idea of this system is to have modular components for assembling frames/chassis for whatever you might like. There is a wide array of hardware that attached to the extrusions by sliding into the namesake slots and screwing down. This whole system afford more flexibility than welded framing as it is easy to disassemble and reassemble on the fly and while it still requires some machining it is much easier to set up and maintain than a custom built frame.

This particular extrusion is in the PG40 series which means the extrusions have a profile that is 40mm on the short side. This is the heaviest and strongest series we offer. Use this for when you need the most rigidity possible.
