MiniTec UK will exhibit a selection of its Profile System and Linear System machine framing and modular positioning components at Southern Manufacturing 2011. These products will be of interest to OEMs, machine builders and system integrators.
In particular, MiniTec will highlight its new CC-Assembler software that enables machine builders and designers to conceptualise, plan and cost their MiniTec Profile System and Linear System machine designs. The FREE software works in both standalone mode, requiring no CAD platform or CAD expertise, or in combination with most standard CAD systems. Over 50 output formats for AutoCAD, SolidWorks, and ProEngineer are available, as well as IGES, STEP4 and many other 2D and 3D formats.
MiniTec's Profile System includes a wide range of modular aluminium profiles, plus ancillary components for creating safety and guarding systems, workbenches, conveyors and parts handling machinery, automated manufacturing and test equipment, special fixtures and display consoles, multi-axis linear systems, and even complex production plant. With its innovative and patented Powerlock fastener, this framing system requires no pre-machining or drilling - just a turn of an Allen Key is all that is required for fast, straightforward and neat frame construction. The range is comprehensively covered in a 372-page catalogue that is available to take away at the show, or visitors can arrange for delivery or download it in PDF format from www.minitec.co.uk.
MiniTec's Linear System includes ball-bushings, slide units and torque bearings, plus precision ground shafts and shaft supports. These components are often specified with the Profile System machine framing range so that more components can be specified, designed and built from a single source.
