With shifting government policies and an increased focus on sustainability, the automotive industry is always in a state of change and growth. The demand for safer products and technologically-savvy vehicles means automotive suppliers and manufacturers are consistently refining systems and products through research and development initiatives and lean processes.


With the rising costs of healthcare initiatives, as well as increasing regulations, it’s important to implement solutions and products aimed to curb costs and meet evolving standards. In order to achieve these goals, applications must be customizable and easily adaptable, without sacrificing quality.

Industrial Manufacturing

From cycle time to throughput to changeover metrics, there’s no end to the daily concerns and issues that you deal with in an industrial marketplace. You’re tasked with continually improving key metrics as well as complying with evolving regulations, which means change is the only constant.

Molding and Plastics

As the molding and plastics industries grow and expand, you’re tasked with consistently analyzing your production processes to find new ways to become increasingly efficient with fewer materials. Coupled with expectations of fast speed to market and tight timetables, you need solutions that are built for today but with the ability to adapt to tomorrow.

Research and Development

Modern science calls for interdisciplinary problem solving. Your research and development equipment and processes need to be flexible to accommodate a wide range of tasks. Optimal laboratory layouts adjust to change without overbuild and are capable of a quick response as requirements evolve over time.


The fast-paced, ever-changing nature of the retail industry means that you need applications and solutions that are reusable and reconfigurable. You’re also challenged with marketing a wide range of products and merchandise that vary in size, shape, weight, and function.


Most academic institutions and universities change the layout of their labs on a consistent basis due to the expanding nature of research and advances in technology. This means that laboratories need to be responsive to current and future needs and prepare accordingly.


The maintenance, repair and operations industry is challenged with implementing resourceful and innovative processes and equipment to improve the productivity and efficiency of facilities and operations. At the same time, the constantly changing environment of commerce and manufacturing means you need to be able to adapt and respond quickly.



Displays are all around you. Whether you need a tradeshow and exhibit booth, displays for the office waiting area or a new kiosk in a retail setting, we have you covered. While every solution comes in a different size, shape, and color, some things remain the same; you need options that are customizable, durable, reconfigurable, and aesthetic.


Well-executed ergonomic workspaces significantly reduce workplace injuries and costs while also consistently improving productivity. Other benefits include positive employee engagement, higher product quality, decreased absenteeism and improvements in error rates. 80/20 provides custom ergonomic applications to fit your requirements.

Lean Solutions

80/20 T-slot aluminum profiles and products support continuous improvement while reducing waste. This flexible system allows you to create lean applications customized to your employees and equipment. It’s a modular and integrated approach that can accommodate changing circumstances.

Machine Frames

In today’s marketplace, it’s crucial that equipment and operations are lean and efficient. Your machine frames can either aid in these initiatives or be a hindrance to them. With 80/20 T-slot aluminum profiles and products the frame becomes a part of your process, helping to create streamlined systems.

Material Handling

80/20 T-slot aluminum profiles and parts create efficiencies through ergonomic material handling solutions that fit your processes and people, rather than forcing you to conform to static, pre-built options. An 80/20 custom application allows you to adapt and respond immediately to your changing needs.


T-slot aluminum profiles are used in a wide array of applications and projects within the automation world, and this isn’t by coincidence. Automation has been achieved through a variety of means such as robotic, hydraulic, and pneumatic solutions. Profile systems provide both the structure and rigidity for your large machine bases, mechanical arms, fixtures and guarding equipment as well as the precision needed for jigs, sensors, safety components, or computer system mounts.

Safety & Guarding

Keeping people, equipment and property safe is a top priority for any company. 80/20 provides the widest variety of products in the industry to ensure you get the custom guard or enclosure to fit your specific needs and requirements.


Lean thinking is an instrumental mindset for saving time and money. The best method of achieving a lean process is by creating custom systems that fit your operations. The natural modularity of T-slot profiles and products provide the framework you require for custom, lean workstations.


Industries such as automotive, robotics and automation depend on pneumatic power every day. The nature of the equipment and repetitive processes require strong, durable solutions that lend themselves to lean solutions in a highly competitive marketplace. T-slot aluminum profiles offer a resilient framing system that provide flexibility to make quick adjustments.


Robotics technology is used extensively to provide a competitive edge in industries of manufacturing and automation. The integration of robotic components is essential for increased productivity, more efficient use of materials, improved safety, and reduced lead times. The 80/20 T-slot system provides custom solutions for each of these areas.


Managing facilities requires consideration of space, workflow, and product, along with the safety and morale of staff. Organizing buildings and equipment can be a costly endeavor. 80/20 custom aluminum framing systems provide cost-effective solutions for all of your layout and design needs.
