In addition to its wide range of aluminium profile machine building systems, MiniTec UK Ltd will be exhibiting its new range of SUS304 stainless steel profiles at the 2007 Machine Building exhibition at the NEC in February. These stainless profiles feature exceptional corrosion resistance for use in harsh environments, outdoor construction and clean processing applications. The new range is available in a 45 x 45 mm profile that is very competitively priced against other stainless steel profile systems, with the added benefit of complete interchangeability with MiniTec's aluminium profile and its super-fast Powerlock fastening system (also available in stainless steel) - designed to save both time and cost, with no pre-drilling or special tools required for assembly.
Aimed at machine frame applications in chemical plant, pharmaceutical manufacturing, food and beverage production, clean rooms, and high-temperature processing, the new range includes accessories such as mounting feet and end caps that complement its rigid and highly durable construction.
Visitors to the stand will be able to experience the ease and simplicity required for assembling the MiniTec profile system by way of a working demonstration and a competition to see who can make the fastest assembly of a simple system. With the chance of an exciting prize, each competitor will be awarded a special desktop organiser made from MiniTec profile.
MiniTec UK will be showing a wide selection of components from its comprehensive Profile-System range, which covers cross-sectional profiles for machine frame applications along with mechanical, electrical and pneumatic components for linear motion, conveying, machine guards and workstations.
Also on display will be a working example of MiniTec's on-line E-catalogue and integrated AutoCAD software that allows customers to create frames, benches, linear slides and conveyors using simple toolbar commands. This will then produce part drawings and cutting lists for exporting to other programs and manipulation within an Excel spreadsheet.
