How to get the most out of your profile.

When you are spending your time and money on a project you need to be sure that you are getting the most out of your resources.

T Slot Aluminium framework

Unintentional wastage can end up costing you a lot and you need to plan carefully to avoid blowing your budget.

The last thing you want to see at the end of a job is a big pile of costly material that some how wasn’t quiet long enough to be useful but ended up being a lot of material none the less.

How to get the most out of your profile. - aluminium extrusion

Profilium T slot Aluminium profile extrusions

When you have a large cutting list and the profile you are cutting comes in 6 meter lengths it can become very complicated to work out how to minimise your off cuts.

Fortunately there are a number of free and open source resources available  such as this   Cut list optimiser   which are suitable for bars of material.

most of them will allow you to print a copy of your cut list or you can download this  Cutting list form  to help you make a list of the cuts that you need to do.

Our bars come in 6040mm lengths to make allowance for width of the saw blade when cutting .Remember to include the saw blade thickness on the optimiser when doing the set up.Most saw blades are  3 mm thick so you can make up to 13 cuts and still have a full 6 m of usable material

Don’t forget that once you have a cut list you can send it to us and we can cut it accurately for you and deliver it to you .In fact cutting the profile before delivery dramatically reduces the freight cost .We can also drill and tap the profiles for you if you require.

When you require a conveyor system you need to consider a lot more than just the conveyor system itself.

These are some of the factors you may need to take into consideration

  • How you are going to integrate a conveyor system into your current infrastructure
  • How can ensure that it is safe to operate
  • How can you minimise disruption to your production while it is installed.
  • How easily can you make modifications to it.



Our extensive range of T slot extrusions and Accessories will help you to overcome these and many other challenges.

Because our products are so versatile and adaptable you will be able to design and construct your conveyor system and any associated equipment such as work stations or guarding out of the same easily integrated components

We can supply you with the CAD files you need to help you design your conveyor system or if you don’t have the design capability we can design a system for you.

We can supply the components you need and assist you in getting your system constructed in the best methods.
