Modern Look & Practical Solution

Strong and Sustainable

80/20 T-slot profiles optimize automotive processes that are constantly evolving and play an integral role in bringing vehicles to market. This strong and durable building system withstands repetitive motion and is easily reconfigurable for adjustments and changes. From resilient support structures to guarding barriers, T-slot profiles provide an easy-to-implement solution.

Easy Assembly

Your projects can be built using a simple hand tool and without the need for expensive, skilled labor. Also consider that the connections are tight and secure. While other options, such as piping or tube framing, might claim to be cheaper, they are not as sturdy, don’t last as long and almost always require expensive modifications to fit your requirements.

Versatility is Key

80/20 T-slot profiles touch all aspects of the automotive industry. Manufacturers and suppliers alike find the versatility, durability, and customization of 80/20 products a competitive advantage. These profiles increase safety, application life, and productivity, while at the same time decreasing maintenance costs, cycle times, and assembly resources.

Decreased Cost of Ownership

When you analyze the total cost of alternative materials, there’s no comparison. T-slot profiles are reconfigurable, last longer, require less assembly resources, and are easily redeployed. An added benefit; profiles don’t chip, fade or rust. They look modern and clean, adding that touch of professionalism that signifies a focus on quality.

"Automakers invested more than $125 billion globally on research and development, ranking the auto industry ahead of other technology-driven industries."
