These rails have continuous T-slots for attaching fittings. Use this versatile framing to configure machine guards, enclosures, carts, and workstations. T-Slotted Framing Structural Brackets Connect T-slotted rails and reinforce joints for structural stability. Framing Technology Inc. Is the manufacturer, designer, fabricator and distributor of T-slotted aluminum extrusion and accessories to both commercial industries and individuals.
80/20, known as 'The Industrial Erector Set'©, is a modular T -slotted aluminum framing system offered in both inch and metric profiles. It offers extremely cost-efficient solutions to building machine frames, guards, work stations, retrofit projects and more.. basically anything .. and we do it all right here at Fiero Fluid Power! We maintain extensive product inventories and provide in-house services including in-depth CAD support and building complete value-added assemblies.
80/20’s modularity is based upon the T-slot concept of our profiles. The 'T' shaped slots present on all of our profiles allow for infinite positioning along the axis. While there are other types of T-slotted profiles in the industry, one modification to the 80/20 line is a slight adjustment to the ' T' which creates the 2° Drop-Lock Feature. When a fastener is tightened to (or beyond) the necessary torque, the flange will flex up to the adjoining profile, thus creating pressure which prevents the fasteners from vibrating loose.
Some of the Benefits of 80/20 Framing Products:

- No painting
- Light weight
- Easy to machine
- Much less engineering time is required
- Only simple hand tools are needed for assembly

Steel T Slot Rail
MicroRAX works like larger structural framing with unique dovetail slots running down the length. Joining plates engage nuts that fit into the slots allowing for placement along the length of the profile. You can make just about any configuration imaginable. Made from high-strength precision extruded aluminum (6063-T6), MicroRAX is much stronger than plastic building systems or thin punched sheet metal.
MicroRAX is 'green' too, by following the three R's; Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
1. Smaller so you use less material.
2. Easy to take apart for reuse.
3. Made from aluminum which is 100% recyclable.
