We initially developed this extrusion for our own use in our plants and machinery. Its a solid section at about 3KG per metre, and has surprised us by how robust it is.
Slot edges are chamfered to suit V slot wheels for use as linear rails.
Centre hole is designed to be threaded to M8 or M10 using a standard metric tap, or spiral tap.
Mill orders can also be cut to your required lengths (up to 6.5m maximum), and supplied in mill finish, anodised multiple colours, or powdercoated to your requirements.
Please note this is intended as an industrial product, and as such the anodising finish may have cosmetic lines near the ends from the holding during the process. Including these lines minimizes the amount of scrap we generate, and ensures we can deliver this at a competitive price point.
Unfortunately we are not setup to do custom cutting or custom lengths for smaller orders at this stage.
The good news is aluminium extrusion can be cut successfully with a standard builders drop saw or mitre saw. Make sure you have a sharp (new) fine tooth blade. Alternatively, most hardware and tool suppliers sell aluminium specific saw blades to fit standard saws.
A little light oil, CRC or kerosene can help getting a clean cut.
Our Cutting Tolerances are:
Please note cut lengths longer than 1600mm must be sent by heavy freight, not standard courier. (around $50 for NI and $60 for SI addresses) shorter cut lengths can be sent by courier at much lower rates.
For heavy Freight, you will need to have the ability to manage & lift the crate off the truck at your selected delivery address. Alternatively we can arrange for delivery by Hiab crane truck. There will be an additional fee for this service.
