No matter the industry, every company has many small moving parts that aid the larger parts in making things happen every day. Essentially, this simple definition sums up the meaning of MRO, maintenance, repair, and operations. 

MRO – Maintenance, Repair, and Operations

The maintenance, repair, and operations industry is a complex world that helps manufacturers and asset-heavy industries implement equipment and processes that are resourceful and efficient. A successful MRO strategy will: 

  • Increase productivity 
  • Reduce costs 
  • Bring innovation to the front of the line

With poor MRO practices, a company can easily suffer prolonged downtime, mismanagement of inventory, and inability to control overall cost. With the utilization of t-slot, MRO strategies can be effective and cost-saving in the long term.

Parco profiles and parts are 100% compatible and offer a modular option that does not require regular maintenance. If it does need to be repaired, it can quickly be disassembled, and the new piece put in place and reassembled. There are several MRO solutions that a company could benefit from, such as:

  • Racks for spare parts inventory
  • Material handling equipment 
  • Repair benches
  • Cabinets
  • Workstations

Depending on the industry, MRO solutions could also include large-scale structures like enclosures, conveyance systems, or machine retrofits. Parco can easily implement applications for automation, robotics, pneumatics, or hydraulics. 

Advantages of Using T-Slot

T-slot aluminum profiles, regular or anodized, do not require coatings, nor do they rust. For anodized profiles, a protective barrier will help them be scratch-resistant and give them an aesthetically pleasing appearance. 

Assembly of t-slot framing systems is done in very little time and does not require special tools or welding. Once together, solutions made from t-slot are strong, vibration and impact-resistant, and lightweight. Should you need to disassemble, t-slot allows for quick reconfigurations. 

We Can Design Custom Solutions 

Every company is unique, and sometimes pre-engineered solutions just won’t fit an application’s needs. Parco can help you design and build custom t-slotted aluminum solutions. We can take on projects of any size, large or small. From machine guarding to enclosures, or stations for maintenance and testing equipment, we can help make the right solution for your MRO department.

Our Machining Services

Most MRO groups have a machine shop and could easily buy the materials from us and machine their profiles. To make things easier for our clients we offer machining services as well. When a project is uploaded into our SOLIDWORKS software, a bill of materials is produced for the needed profiles and hardware. 

Once everything is confirmed with the client, we will cut and machine the profiles and ship them one of three ways: kit for, pre-assembled, or fully assembled and ready for installation.

Whether it is something simple like wire or cable management, or you need a large-scale fixture, Parco can help with our no minimum order policy. We have our online store and our sales department that can assist you in answering questions, giving you design advice, or help with making a purchase.

  • This was the first time I tried Parco-inc. for one of my t-slot projects. It was easy to find what I needed and order on the website. I got the parts quickly and the quality was great, so I will be buying here from now on!
  • Really good quality aluminum i can feel the difference between it and other parts i ordered from china also the measurements was on point
  • I use ALOT of these little anchor faster, every month. My regular vendor was out of stock, and so I found Parco and ordered from them. The fasteners arrived quickly, we're high quality, and they even worked with me on a bulk discounted price. 10/10 in all areas!!
  • I am a small business and needed the t slot in a hurry. They processed my order, cut to size and shipped in less then 36 hours and 2 days before Christmas. Wonderful customer service. Thank you
  • Just awesome. Great customer service and response to questions, all cuts and pieces exactly like I ordered, extrusions seem like quality, fast shipping, and well packed to protect the items. I can't say enough about the quality and service. Will order again.
