Simple question, whatís the name of the aluminium section used on this cnc bed.
I have a similar CNC but itís a solid bed and I want to put this type of section on it to easily clamp my work. The thinner the section I can get the better so I have more Z hight.
I only really want 2 strips of it as I would like to leave the centre of the work for full cut outs. Also while you are here what bolts / blocks etc do I need to go through my bed and hold down the bars on top of it? Oh and if you know a good UK supplier that would be handy :)


Thanks as always.

Its basic alu extrusion.
Try this one:MiniTec T-Slotted Aluminum Extrusions. Modular Aluminum Profiles For Custom Construction From Aluminum Extrusions. Custom Clean Rooms, Ergonomic Workstations, Belt Conveyors, and Machine Guards Are But A Few Applications. (http://www.minitecframing.com/Products/Aluminum_Profiles/Aluminum_Profile_Catalog_Pages/20.1077_Profile_270x19.html)

Thanks mate . I think this one (http://www.minitecframing.com/Products/Aluminum_Profiles/Aluminum_Profile_Catalog_Pages/20.0995_Aluminum_Profile_90x19.html) will work well I can put clams down the side as well by the looks of it :)

Actually not the uk only do 6 meter lengths I'll put an add in wanted see if anyone has something like it but in 400 mm lengths or there abouts.
