Tech Toolkit

The 80/20 Tech Toolkit™ is a collection of tools that aid in designing and ordering with 80/20. The delfection calculator figures the strength of profiles under weight. The Miter Worksheet assist in designing miter cut profiles and supports. The conversion calculator easily converts measurements and weights.


more information 80/20, known as "The Industrial Erector Set"©, is a modular T -slotted aluminum framing system offered in both inch and metric profiles. It offers extremely cost-efficient solutions to building machine frames, guards, work stations, retrofit projects and more... basically anything ... and we do it all!

80/20’s modularity is based upon the T-slot concept of their profiles. The "T" shaped slots present on all 80/20 profiles allow for infinite positioning along the axis. While there are other types of T-slotted profiles in the industry, one modification to the 80/20 line is a slight adjustment to the " T" which creates the 2° Drop-Lock Feature. When a fastener is tightened to (or beyond) the necessary torque, the flange will flex up to the adjoining profile, thus creating pressure which prevents the fasteners from vibrating loose.


Some of the Benefits of 80/20 Framing Products:

Panel Your Project

80/20’s in-house Panel Machine Shop is a service that provides you the total solution for your project needs.

Black Anodized

80/20 Black Anodized Profiles
80/20 has expanded their stock of black anodized profiles. With over 1,000 items in the black anodize line, 80/20 makes it easy to design your custom project. Choose from architectural or organic anodizing processes; both meet Military Spec 8625.
Black anodize is ideal for low reflective projects, photo booths, military applications and vision systems. It adds a sleek look to any project and is commonly used in furniture and displays because of its aesthetic appearance.

By stocking these materials and machining them AFTER the anodize process, we can offer significant savings and faster turnaround times.

Why should you choose black anodized for your next project:
Adds a great looking aesthetic finish
Blends into the background
Decreased light reflectivity
Same added protection to the aluminum
Hides marks and scuffs
