V-Slot Linear Rail - Black - 20x60x500mm


V-Slot is a high quality extruded aluminium profile with a "V" groove on all 4 sides. This "V" groove provides extremely smooth and accurate linear motion. V-Slot can be used as the building block for many machines including:


- 3D Printers
- CNC Machines
- Laser Cutters
- Camera Sliders
- Robotics

Check out www.openbuilds.com for many more!

Building with V-Slot is very similar to the traditional T-Slot, it can be cut and connected simply like a jigsaw puzzle. Like T-Slot, V-Slot can provide the solid base of a machine, but the "V" groove adds functionality for linear motion applications, and ultimately reducing your part count.

To compliment the V-Slot linear rails, we offer a hugely diverse range of specifically designed V-Slot accessories, from wheels to brackets. You can be sure that you can find the right combination of parts from our store to create the perfect machine for you, may it be a camera slider, or complex 3D printer.

V-Slot is an entirely new concept in building and will bring your dream projects to life. Professionals, hobbyists, and makers are sure to love it!

Technical Specification

Manufactured from 6063 T-5 Aluminium, V-Slot has a shiny, smooth, black anodized finish. 

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 V-Slot as a full length. If you want us to cut your V-Slot 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 rail 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.
