How It Works

What makes the MiniTec aluminum profile system so versatile is the easy-to-use design of the unique Powerlock fastening method, which requires no specific preparation, pre-machining, or special tools.

The fastening system works by sliding into the t-slot aluminum profiles to allow for simplified design, rapid assembly, and re-usability. By combining the lightweight structure and durability of aluminum along with the flexible options that come from the MiniTec profile system, the possibilities for industrial strength installations are endless.

The Advantages

The benefits from the outstanding features of the MiniTec Profile System are numerous but primarily come from its ability to keep engineering, assembly time, and cost at a minimum.

Our unique CAD software utilizes the wide range of compatible MiniTec components to create proven standard-solutions. Thanks to our patented Powerlock fastener system, only minimal assembly is required. All you need for set-up or tear-down is an Allen Key. Our MiniTec profile technology can also be reconfigured later to meet an unforeseen need, saving you from further purchases.

Although the MiniTec aluminum profile system is a relatively simple solution to assemble, we also offer an installation service. Many customers opt to utilize our experienced engineers in the assembly process to make the entire installation process even easier for themselves. If you are looking for a real end-to-end solution, to increase your throughput, contact us today.

About Minitec Automation

Intrigued by pre-engineered aluminum profiles widely used in Germany, our parent company Flotronics, Inc. researched the industry for the premier technology and brought MiniTec (Germany) to the Midwest, via our Southeast Michigan headquarters. MiniTec Automation (formerly Modular Aluminum Technology) was incorporated in 1999 as a division of Flotronics, Inc. We selected the MiniTec system from in excess of thirty manufacturers of pre-engineered structural aluminum extrusions based on MiniTec's proven reliability, affordability, and versatility.
