MiniTec(reg) extrusion is for framing with a high strength-to-weight ratio. The 45 X 45 mm UL-style extrusion is for general engineered structures where weight must be minimized. MiniTec modular aluminum framing is used for custom construction. Applications include guards, enclosures, fixtures, workstations, machine bases, and frames. The MiniTec system uses an 8.2-mm T-slot, and the shape of the slot accepts standard 1/4-20 square nuts. Standard finish is 206 R1 clear hard anodize.
