The nature of pneumatic equipment and repetitive processes requires strong and durable solutions.


Adaptable Solutions for Lean Initiatives

Modularity Made Easy

80/20 T-slot aluminum profiles are durable and built to withstand the repetitive motions inherent in pneumatic systems. Did you know that pneumatic components such as valves and actuators are designed to fit directly into a T-slot profile?

Profiles for Your Processes

With 80/20 you have access to a wide range of profiles, including both fractional (imperial) and metric options. With light and heavy-duty varieties, combinations of closed and open T-slots, Ready Tube® and Quick Frame®, radius and angled, black anodize and yellow powder coat, or smooth and align-a-grooves, you’re sure to find the exact profile to fit your design.

Integrated Wire Management

Wires, power supplies, tubes, and cables work with the profile – they can be recessed within the T-slot channel or mounted on the profile surface utilizing wire management components for easy access, improving organization and safety, as well as providing a cleaner-looking application.

Precision with Positioning

Instead of modifying your equipment to fit a standardized frame, simply mount components wherever you need directly along the profile. The T-slot channel also allows you to mount and modify these accessories and fixtures along any axis – get the precise angles and placement your processes require.

Reduced Downtime

T-slot channels enable simple maintenance with little downtime and easy replacement of motors, gauges, or vacuum systems that wear over repeated use. 80/20 offers a variety of pressure manifold feed and access plates as well as linear motion bearings and components to augment your pneumatic solution. From an air brake system to a compressed-air engine, use 80/20 for your customized project.

PennAir Aluminum Extrusion provides 80/20 aluminum profiles. or bars, that have channels used to connect other bars and parts – for instance: panels, linear bearings, or casters. It is a building system anyone can use to create custom solutions for any industry.

Build your solutions with simple hand tools — no welding required. T-slot profiles are strong and modular, so if you need to make changes it’s not a problem. Adjustments and assembly are straightforward and fast. Here are some basic assembly instructions for common parts.

From planning and design to fabrication and installation, PennAir helps create a customized solution designed to meet your extrusion needs. Our specialists have experience with design software, and access to the latest file resources and educational information.
