Aluminum Extrusion Raw Materials
Our Aluminum Extrusion Components Include:
Our Extrusion Profiles are Comparable to Bosch, Item and 80/20
AluFab offers 3 basic categories of structural aluminum extrusion: Fractional, Metric, and B-Series.
Our extrusions are comparable in quality and compatible with those of Bosch, Item and 80/20.
If your project needs to support a heavy load and you have questions about which profiles to pick that would provide the best support, check out our Deflection Calculator.
|Fractional||1" & 1.5" Based||6 & 8mm||Item, 80/20|
|Metric||40mm Based||8mm||Item, 80/20|
|B-Series||30mm, 40mm, & 45mm Based||8 & 10mm||Bosch|
Fractional Aluminum Extrusions
T-Slots Fractional Extrusion includes our 10 Series and 15 Series extrusion profiles. 10 Series extrusions have profiles that are 1” based, and 15 Series extrusions are 1.5” based. 15 Series is offered in both light and heavy; choose light if you are trying to keep your project lighter in weight, choose heavy for jobs that need added strength and support.

If you’d like to shop for Fractional profiles in our online store, click the Shop Online link. Or you could Contact Us with any questions you have regarding Fractional Extrusions
40mm Metric Extrusions & Components
T-Slots Metric Extrusion is 40mm based and is also offered in light and heavy. Extrusions have an 8 mm t-slot equivalent to the 15 Series Fractional Extrusion, so hardware and accessories are interchangeable.
B-Series 45mm Aluminum Extrusions and Components
- TSLOT nuts
- Leveling Feet
- Die Cast Angles
- Door Catches
- Pivot Joints

Brackets, Gussets, and Plates
Note: Be sure to pay attention to what series extrusion your accessory fits by looking at the series type listed at the front of the part name (10S or 15S/40S) B-series brackets, gussets and plates are listed on a different page than fractional brackets, gussets and plates
If you are looking build your structure with high-strength connections, our end fasteners and anchor fasteners will allow you to do that. Anchor fasteners fit in to a counterbore at the end of the extrusion and allow you to secure that end of the extrusion to another t-slot. End fasteners fit into a tapped hole at the end of an extrusion piece and can join to another piece through an access hole. Learn more through our Instruction videos, or see what machining AluFab can offer at our machining services page.
Door, Panel & Frame Hardware & Accessories
Doors can be added to your structure by using AluFab accessories such as hinges, door handles, and latches.
If you want to avoid exposed extrusion ends or t-slots showing on your structure, AluFab offers end caps and t-slot covers for every profile and t-slot size & shape.

Dynamic & Structural Hinges
Dynamic hinges are made of 6000 series aluminum alloy with pre-lubricated bronze pivot bearings and hardened stripper bolt axles. The dynamic hinges are designed to give your aluminum extrusion structural assembly design from 0 to 180 degrees of axial motion. Dynamic hinges are great for diverter gate applications and have a high load capacity.
Get the motion and support you need in your aluminum extrusion assembly:
- Dynamic Hinges provide 0 to 180 degrees of axial motion
- Dynamic Hinges give your aluminum extrusion structure high load capacity
- Dynamic Hinges for diverter gate applications
- A complete assortment of Structural Hinges also available

Shimless Industrial Linear Bearings are designed to be used in both low and high acceleration/deceleration applications. The Shimless Industrial Linear Bearing contains special threaded inserts in the pads that allow for a more heavy duty bearing. The Shimless Industrial Linear Bearings can be used in applications such as actuators, parts transfers, or pick and place operations.

Stanchions allow you the ability to implement a fourth and fifth axis to your application. By utilizing our tubes and solid rounds you can create precise positioning with our stanchions. Position of camera equipment and light sources, even positioning for actuators or sensors, can be easily achieved with our wide selection of stanchions. Anything from single or double shaft bases, blank mounting or pre-drilled mounting plates, to single or double mounting blocks are available. The Horizontal Quick Clamp stanchion, a different style of stanchion, allows you to retain the modularity you get with TSLOTS extrusions.
