Extrusion & Fastening Technology

play-free and vibration-safe

One system for everything: the core of the Modular Automation System is the unique fastening technology for aluminum extrusions. Two extrusion sizes that can be combined with each other in 40mm and 50mm series, as well as a matching standard T-slot size of 14mm that is uniform in all extrusions, open up a wide range of possibilities.

One T-slot in all extrusions

  • 13 extrusion shapes in 40mm and 50mm extrusion sizes simplify the application
  • large, uniform 14mm wide and 14mm deep T-slot
  • same T-slot dimensions on all extrusions in the Modular Automation System
  • post insertion of heavy-duty drop-in nuts up to M8 possible

Highest stability at every point

  • aluminum extrusions absolutely play-free, positive-locking and centrically aligned connection by worldwide unique fastening technology
  • one single fastener yields up to 4 tons of tensile strength
  • tubular honeycomb structure for outstanding torsion and load resistance
  • maximum stability for all your applications

No half-measure, but double effect

  • two-sided fastener provides equal strength on both sides of the connection
  • double security - same cost
  • no additional connectors needed
  • strength comparable to a welded connection

Any hole drilled is one hole too many

  • all connections made without drilling or milling - no time spent for machining or set-up
  • maximum wall thickness at the critical extrusion points
  • unlimited re-usability
  • for required hole an integrated location groove guarantees precise and straight drilling

Stability increases with every turn

  • centering inserts are pressed into the extrusion t-slot by screwing
  • absolutely play-free, positive-locking and centrally aligned connection
  • concave surface of extrusion guarantees durable vibration resistance
  • low fastener height saves space in your design

Inserting the drop-in nut

  • simple and quick insertion of the drop-in nut into the 14mm wide T-slot
  • leaf spring assembly protects drop-in nut against unintended movement, guaranteed contact surface
  • to position the drop-in nut, just slide to stop position

Anything is possible - even post assembly

  • simple post-assembly integration of extrusions without dismantling the frame
  • easy repositioning of extrusions at any time
  • no cutting of existing structures
  • no surface treatment required

Save time, cut cost

  • assembly in record time due to use of screws in standard lengths
  • simple and quick selection of Extrusion and Fastening Technology
  • no measuring of boreholes and no detailed drawings necessary
  • just determine the extrusion length during design
  • immediate processing possible through adhesive labels and thread cuts
