Heavy duty aluminium profile

The Blocan D-profile heavy duty profile with an 18 mm-slot width combined with a special press mount connector features high bending and torsional stiffness in relation to its low net weight. It makes make new structural solutions possible and replaces steel in many areas. For example, the 160x320 Blocan D-profile is a match for an IPE 360 double T-girder even though it has smaller dimensions and weighs 35% less.

Thus the Blocan heavy-duty profiles can be used to build lightweight machine frames and large portal systems, which until now were the sole preserve of steel structures. Altogether, the Blocan profile assembly system consists of heavy-duty profiles in the sizes D-80x80, D-80x160 and D-80x240 as well as D-160x160, D-160x240 and D-160x320.

Assembly of the heavy-duty profiles is made significantly easier by the RK press mount connector, a connector especially developed for heavy-duty applications. The profiles are simply cut to length and held together by pressure and a high-strength screw connection that can be unscrewed at any time. No further work is necessary. Accordingly, assembly costs are lower than with other profile systems.
