PARCO T-SLOT INDUSTRIES | AUTOMOTIVE
The automotive industry is constantly evolving. Every year, factories across America are retooling lines, strategizing for leaner environments, and shifting their strategies to meet government policies when it comes to the manufacturing of vehicles.
Parco supplies t-slotted aluminum extrusions, hardware, and accessories to the automotive industry to aid car manufacturers in their growth and change. T-slot applications are used consistently throughout the industry to help create safer, leaner, more viable solutions. Automotive manufacturers and suppliers rely on us to help them optimize their processes as they evolve every year.
T-slotted solutions offer efficient assembly as they are built with common tools without the need of skilled laborers. Connections are secure and durable, capable of withstanding the daily repetitive use found in the automotive assembly environment. We can deliver solutions in kit form, pre-assembled, or fully assembled and ready for install.
Other modular framing systems like pipe and joints or tubing seem like great options for affordability; however, they cannot meet demands in the same way t-slot can. Also, other systems cannot evolve and offer the versatility that t-slot can. Structures made with t-slot are easily reconfigurable, saving time, money, and labor.
Automotive Industry Applications
No matter your spot in the supply chain, t-slot can offer numerous applications to the automotive industry. Not only is it versatile, but it is also:
- Affordable over the long term
T-slot is used to design and build machine guarding and perimeters, automation equipment, as well as used in research and development, material handling equipment, and more. We offer a wide array of pre-engineered solutions such as mobile utility carts to assist assemblers on the auto assembly line or communication boards to showcase processes.
No matter the size or amount needed, we can also assist you in custom designing any of the following:
- Pressurized workstations for pneumatic tools
- Linear motion systems
- Climate control/Sound enclosures
- Conveyance systems
- Work cells
- Machine frames
- Racks and fixtures
If you think it, we can build it. We have SOLIDWORKS CAD software to help us provide you a 3D model which has been tested virtually before it is ever created and built.
T-slot offers a safer solution that not only has a competitive advantage but decreases maintenance and repair costs, inventory audits, and cycle times.
Every department in an automotive plant can utilize t-slot solutions. From quality control to machine shops, front offices, maintenance areas, testing, and training, t-slot is a simple and easily customizable material.
Robotics and Automated Processes
T-slot has become the sought-after material in robotics and automation for the automotive industry. Profiles are designed to allow for easy mounting of motors, sensors, and other parts to provide maximum precision on manufacturing and assembly lines.
To help eliminate sources of injury in and around robotic equipment, our guarding and enclosures can be designed with secure lock-out tag out (LOTO) setups to increase safety procedures.
T-slot will also help manufacturers and suppliers stay compliant with industrial safety regulations because it is both OSHA and ANSI approved and complies with General Industry Standard (29 CFR 1910) for manufacturing and assembly to protect employees and operators.
