V-Slot Linear Rail (20mm series)
V-Slot™ is a high quality aluminum linear rail profile with an extremely smooth V groove on all 4 sides. It's precise, easy to work with and allows you unlimited design control through it's modular nature. Building with V-Slot is much like working with lumber. You can cut it with a chop saw and the rest is as simple as turning a screwdriver to make the connections. V-Slot's building characteristics are much like traditional T-Slot but with new levels of functionality through it's internal V grooves that allow for linear motion. This brings your projects to life! V-Slot is a new concept in building. Professionals, Hobbyists, and Kit Makers are sure to love it!
OpenBuilds V-Slot is made with 6063 T-5 Aluminum Extrusion and has a beautiful, shiny, super smooth, clear or black anodized finish. The finish is much shinier than standard T-Slot extrusion which allows for a smoother ride for the OpenBuilds V Wheels. We strongly recommend the use of the OpenBuilds Low Profle M5 Screws in conjunction with V-Slot. The ends of the V-slot are not pre-tapped for threads, but can be easily tapped with a M5 Threaded Drill/Tap.
