New profiles boost system possibilities

Recently introduced aluminium extrusions available from Machine Building Systems now offer even greater possibilities for users of Item's MB Building Kit System.

The Line-X range, which affords both a different look compared with the traditional Item profiles, and also reduces crevices and dirt-traps, has been expanded with four more variants of 'N' profiles which feature fully enclosed grooves on one or more faces. These aesthetically pleasing plain-faced extrusions are particularly useful where ease of cleaning is important, since the T-slots hidden and there are tight corner radii resulting in a smooth transition between frame members.

Where required, it is possible to remove the cover from the groove using either a screwdriver or bespoke Item tools also available from Machine Building Systems. This leaves access to the T-slot nuts beneath, allowing fitting of additional components or frame fasteners.
