V-Slot is a high quality extruded aluminium profile with a “V” Groove on all 4 Sides. The “V” Groove in combination with our range of wheels and gantry plates make V-Slot the perfect building system for linear motion applications. A hole host of machines can be built from V-Slot, including CNC Machine, 3D Printers, Camera Sliders, Pick & Place Machines, and Robotics. Check out Openbuilds for inspiration.
Building with V-Slot is very similar to traditional extrusion techniques. With our wide range of parts it can be cut and connected like a simple jigsaw puzzle. Not only does it provide a great frame for a machine, but it is also saves space by also providing the linear motion aspect. This ultimately saves times and money.
To compliment V-Slot, we offer a wide range of specifically designed accessories, from wheels, to brackets, to hardware. 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!
Manufactured from 6063 T-5 Aluminium, V-Slot has a smooth anodized finish in silver or black. Please be aware that the black is more susceptible to scratch marks than silver.
Rails are cut to your stated length +/-0.2mm. If chosen, we will tap the ends of the extrusion for a M5 Thread, they will be tapped at least 10mm deep.
We now get our own extrusions manufactured in the UK. So the V-Slot will either come from our own manufactured stock, or Openbuilds manufactured stock. If you have a specific requirement please let us know.
