Buyers outside the EU please contact us for a shipping quote.

As given in the name, C-Beam has a C Shape profile. The C Shape is extremely versatile, and gives added strength and functionality. C-Beam incorporates the excellent V-Slot system, every side of C-Beam can be used a linear guide. Because C-Beam works hand in hand with V-Slot, all standard V-Slot parts & accessories are compatible.

C-Beam Linear Rail is available in 250/500/1000mm standard lengths, and as expected, our cutting service is available if you require that added precision. At each end of the standard lengths, 4 holes are pre-tapped with a M5 thread, for easy assembly with C-Beam end mounts.

V-Slot and C-Beam combined, allows for endless modular machines to be built, and should get your creative juices flowing. 3D Printers, CNC Machine's, Camera Sliders, and Linear Actuators are all possible and easy!

Technical Specification

Manufactured from 6063 T-5 Aluminium, C-Beam has a shiny, smooth, and clear anodized finish. Weights: 250mm – 510g, 500mm – 1020g, 1000mm – 1930g, 1500mm - 2950g.

C-Beam can be considered as a 40 x 80mm V-Slot Profile compatible with all the standard V-Slot parts and accessories.

Please note, that we don't guarantee the length of the rail will be exactly the stated length, they are usually a couple of millimeters over. However we do guarantee that they will be equal to or greater than the stated length. If you need it to be an exact length, please use our cutting service.

To save you time and effort we now offer a cutting service for a price of £1.20 Inc Vat per precision length, the instructions below will outline how to use our cutting service.

1) If you do not want a cutting service, in the option box “Cutting Service” please select “No” and we will ship your C-Beam as a full length. If you want us to cut your C-Beam please select “Yes”

If you selected “Yes” please work out the number of precision lengths you need (Do not count offcuts as a precision length). For instance if you want a 1000mm C-Beam cut in to 2 x 200mm + 1 x 550mm + a offcut, this is 3 precision lengths, we will still send you the offcuts.

The total length of all the precision lengths added together must be less than the total rail length, please bear in mind that the blade we use to cut the rails has a thickness of 3mm, for example if you require 3 precision lengths, this requires 3 cuts, hence the maximum length of rail you have to work with is reduced by 3 x 3mm = 9mm. Check that your lengths satisfy the formula below

(Total length of precision lengths) “IS LESS THAN” (Rail Length) – (Number of Precision Lengths * 3mm)

2) In the option box “Number of precision lengths” please enter the number of precision lengths you want.

3) Fill out the boxes labeled “length 1” “length 2” etc, with the precision lengths you want, for instance in the example above you would enter 200mm into “length 1”, 200mm into “length 2”, and 550mm into “length 3”, leave any boxes not needed empty. Only enter Whole numbers and do NOT enter the offcut length into any box.

4) If you require multiples of the same rail, with the same cuts, just increase the quantity. i.e Only enter cuts for 1 rail and use the quantity field to order this multiple times.


Standard C-Beam lengths come with the required holes on the ends tapped for M5 Bolts and compatibility with C-Beam end mounts. If you choose our cuting service, you will loose these threads.

Our re-tapping service, will re-tap these ends for full compatibility with M5 Bolts and C-Beam end mounts. The price for this service is £3.60 Inc Vat per precision length, 2 Ends - 8 Holes in total. For instance if you choose to have 3 precision lengths, our re-tapping service will cost 3 x £3.60 = £10.80 Inc Vat. Offcuts will not be tapped.
