T-SLOT SOLUTIONS FOR ROBOTIC APPLICATIONS
Custom Robotic Enclosures
T-slot continues to be a unique framing system that can be perfectly tailored to fit robotic applications. With its hardware, fasteners, and accessories, t-slotted aluminum allows companies to design custom solutions to fit pre-existing or new equipment and processes.
Since manufacturing and assembly settings are constantly evolving, t-slot makes retooling lines, expansion, or downsizing manageable and easy with its modularity.
Tailored T-Slot Applications
At Parco, a t-slot industry leader, we can tailor our products to fit the applications you need. T-slot is lightweight, which makes it an optimal material for robotic applications. We can custom design a solution or take your design and create it exactly to your specifications.
Built for Efficiency
T-slot allows for efficiency in every way. The channels of t-slot can hold equipment such as:
- Vacuum pumps
- Vision systems
- HMI-Human Machine Interface
All of the above can be incorporated into the frame to make your application efficient; leading to an optimized workflow and a safer work environment. T-slot accessories such as doors, locks, leveling feet, and lifts can be added to assist with configuring conveyor heights, combat vibration, or to set entry points for safety and maintenance.
Withstands the Environment
Robotic applications must be capable of handling high volume use, vibrations, and impact. No matter the environment, Parco can provide t-slot framing solutions that will withstand almost any industry’s environment. From automotive to laboratories, food and beverage, foundries, and medical manufacturing, t-slotted aluminum framing will support a wide range of robotic and automated applications.
Benefits of T-Slot Robotic Applications
T-slot for robotic applications offers several benefits to a manufacturer, such as improved accuracy and safety as well as decreased cycle times. To achieve those benefits, t-slot utilizes the following and more.
- Floor mounts
- Adjustable bases
- Custom plates
Industrial robots allow for flexibility on assembly lines, provide better safety, increase production time and yields, and are collaborative and precise. T-slot allows for easy incorporation, configuration, and scalability with industrial robots, helping them to fully deliver their capabilities.
The modularity of t-slot outweighs its initial investment cost. T-slot has become an industry standard, and those who work with it regularly have seen how it saves money when lines get retooled or a process is modified or moved. T-slot can be disassembled and reconfigured with little or no cost.
Profiles can be reused to expand or downsize the operation without welding or cutting. When t-slot has been used previously and it needs to be reconfigured, most find they may need some extra hardware or machining, which is minor compared to purchasing a brand-new solution.
Robotic Machine and Perimeter Guarding
With robotic applications, there will be a need to guard the equipment and protect employees and operators. Therefore, installation of machine guarding and perimeters will be necessary per OSHA. With the right t-slot panels and doors, your application and process will meet safety regulations set forth by OSHA and ANSI. To learn more, feel free to visit or Safety Resources page.
