Durable machine frame for hostile environments

Durable machine frame for hostile environments MiniTec UK has expanded its Profile System range with a new stainless steel profile for use as machine framing for harsh production environments, high temperature processes and other areas where aluminium profiles have limited use. The new high grade SUS304 stainless profile retains the simplicity and cost benefits of its aluminium counterpart but has significantly improved temperature and load bearing characteristics as well as excellent corrosion resistance. The 45mm x 45mm square section profile is completely interchangeable with MiniTec's aluminium Profile System and benefits from a stainless version of the time-saving Powerlock fastener that requires no pre-machining or special assembly tools. MiniTec claims that, when compared other manufacturer's stainless steel profile systems, the combination of a very competitive pricing policy and the simplicity of machine-free assembly makes its own profile a very attractive machine framing choice. Whilst extruded aluminium profile framing systems are now the preferred construction method for production machinery and test equipment in many areas of industry with well developed cost and time saving benefits, anodised aluminium has limited corrosion resistance which can inhibit its use in hostile, clean and outdoor environments. The new stainless steel profile opens up a wide range of application opportunities for system integrators and OEMs of manufacturing, packaging and handling machinery used for industrial production of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, and medical devices.
