Many factory owners choose traditional welded steel structures to improve their strength and durability. However, extruded aluminum frames are becoming increasingly popular for several reasons. Steel is strong, but with this metal you don’t get the same versatility that aluminum provides. Building on top of an existing aluminum profile is incredibly easy, whether you’re dealing with a mistake made before or you want to make a last-minute change. When it comes to welding steel, precision is much more important, and every movement you make is more durable, so you don’t hear the term “desoldering” or “desoldering” very often. The need for design changes can occur at any time, which is why many manufacturers prefer to rely on T-groove aluminum profiles.
With the T-slot, they have also become much easier to build and easier to install, with virtually no drawbacks. Aluminum extrusion systems, on the other hand, are much more flexible. Parts can be separated and then reassembled as needed, and it’s easy to move connectors a few inches here or there to allow for changes in assembly. Calculating the required size of the mounting plate is a great way to optimize the cost of your design.
This not only increases the flexibility of your structure, but also helps you save money on upgrades. This process is possible with the help of billets – large aluminum cylinders. Sticks cannot go through the matrix of the system as they are, so they become more malleable by spending time in a particular furnace.
T-slot and V-slot aluminum extruded profiles are available in different dimensions according to your specifications. You can also switch between T-slot and V-slot aluminum extruded profiles, but it’s best to stick to one. The assembly process of T-Slot aluminum profiles is simple and reasonable. MiniTec Aluminum Framing offers the most comprehensive, flexible and user-friendly T-grooved aluminium frame system on the market today. Our unique profile system has proven itself in many industries through reliability and flexibility. The industrial aluminum profile has unique grooves used for the mounting frame.
If you ever need to move something made of aluminum profiles, you can quickly disassemble it and move the structure to its new location. With the right tools and materials, aluminum platforms made of T-slot can be configured in minutes. The design also goes well with other prefabricated metal parts such as steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel or even aluminum. The result is a well-built platform that can be used to facilitate the storage of equipment and the transport of materials. For facilities looking to expand their storage space or expand their operations, aluminum platforms with T-slot extrusion presses are the perfect choice. To reiterate, these materials are exceptionally versatile and do not require any form of welding to join extrusions.
The billet furnace heats the metal to extreme temperatures, making it more susceptible to change. • A drop-lock function of 1°-2.2° is a gradual reduction from the surface of the aluminum extrusion T slot to the center of the T slot. In addition, steel surfaces must be cleaned and painted before use, which adds an extra step. However, extruded aluminum parts are anodized and do not require paint or coating. In some cases, the joints may suffer a force that removes the screw and T-nut from extrusion. The resistance of extrusion to this force is what we call the “extraction force”.
After all, it is very easy to work with aluminum by using only basic tools. It is often not suitable for heavy applications, but you will be surprised what can be done with it. The logistics and warehousing industry, for example, can use aluminum cabinets/shelves to accommodate different types of inventory together. Because T-groove aluminum is corrosion resistant, there are no concerns about object contamination or quality degradation.
