80/20: Built for the Future

The 80/20 Advantage

80/20 products are consistently used in robotic applications, such as automation, framing, material handling, and safety solutions. Its modularity, as well as strong and durable yet lightweight nature, lends it to industrial robots and robotic automation systems.

Your Cohesive Solution

Your robotic mounting structure faces inherent challenges, including rapid and consistent movement, integrating components such as controls, safety features, and power and pneumatic feeds, and protecting your workforce and equipment. 80/20 T-slot aluminum profiles allow you to address all of these objectives with one cohesive solution.

Withstands Your Environment

Robotic applications must withstand the high impact and heavy vibrations of constant use. 80/20 T-slot aluminum profiles stand up to these challenges where other framing options fail. The “2-degree drop-lock” is a unique 80/20 design that combats high stress and vibrations. When engaged, the drop-lock creates a vibration-resistant connection. The anodized aluminum is resistant to hydraulic fluids and harsh cleaning chemicals, and provides strength comparable to carbon steel.

Did You Know?

Leveraging a robot in place of manual processes can save more than $1,778,974 over the robot’s expected lifetime. That equates to about $118,598 per year!

Rigid Yet Precise

The 80/20 T-slot system is not limited to framing solutions. You’ll find 80/20 products as the frame for a robotic arm and in end effectors for that exact same arm! It provides the rigidity needed for the base structure as well as the precision required for end-of-arm tooling.

Mounting & Managing Components

Open T-slots allow you to mount components; from motors to sensors to measuring systems, add accessories that are easily repositioned and adjusted as needed. Recess wires, power supplies, tubes, and cables within the T-slot channel or above the profile surface with wire management components.
