Extruded aluminum T-slots: The most rigid and precise extrusion system on the market

March 09, 2017 | Maxime Lavigueur

Extruded aluminum T-Slots from Vention are redefining what is achievable in terms of structural rigidity and precision, thanks to our proprietary self-aligning interface system and computer-optimized profile. As always, Vention’s extrusions are available in all lengths ranging from 45mm to 1530mm, in increments of 45mm.

High-precision interface

Vention Extrusion, high precision profile

Extruded aluminum T-slots from Vention are based on a proprietary “V-shape” interface system. Assembly joints are self-aligning, with T-nuts and bolts only used as holding devices. This unique interface system not only eliminates angular errors commonly found with T-slot extrusions but also significantly increases the load-bearing capacity of each node.

Machined end faces

Vention Extrusions, machined to lenght

Aluminum extrusion T-slots from Vention are machined to length, eliminating low-length precision and angular errors often resulting from cut-to-length operations. Each extrusion profile is available in increments of 45mm, with lengths ranging from 45 to 1530mm.


Vention Extrusions, optimized for strength and regidity

Extruded aluminum T-slots have been optimized to make every gram of material count. Each profile has an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio and rigidity, providing a real alternative to welded structure assemblies.
