Who knows good sources for extruded aluminum profiles
and associated linear bearings, trapezoidal spindles,...
in EUROPE? (Germany would be best)

In the small volumes required to build a single machine.

I've been looking around for profile for a CNC machine, which I have had to shelve for the moment. I found these people, whose extrusions seem reasonably priced. I'd be really interested if you order from them, what their minimum order is, how accurately they cut to size, the quality of their service etc.
Their full product brochure and price list is on this page: [www.valuframe.co.uk]

I emailed them to see if they have a minimum order and they replied £100 !

This site was linked from the MendelMax home page under "alternative suppliers"
[www.aluminium-profile.co.uk]

I am being quoted £28.12 for the Al profile for Prism Mendel.

I had my material from the above supplier delivered and am very pleased. Good quality and acurately cut. Obviously postage is a big factor so UK suppliersbare very good for us Brits.

Thanks TCase, that's a good find, and a good price. I was looking for extruded profile to build a CNC Router, valuframe are the only one I've seen that do a 40x40 with M8 centre hole and 8mm slot, which is what I need.

I'm using Bosch-Rexroth 20mm Aluminium Extrusions from KJN here in the UK - They are a really excellent company to deal with, and offer great pricing and cut to length service as standard!

I have a MendelMax build up on my blog using it.

KJN / [www.aluminium-profile.co.uk] have turned out to be the cheapest for me by a long way, as they charge by the metre and cuts are free. Most other places charge for cuts.

Thanx for the info

I'd like to chime in on US suppliers.

Grainger carries 8020. If you are lucky enough to have one within a reasonable distance, you can order it for deliver for the Will-Call Pickup and you can get it without the added shipping costs.

I mean, really, have you checked out the shipping costs that 8020 charges? eye popping smiley

[www.grainger.com]

I get almost all of my metal odds and ends from Grainger. I'm lucky enough to have one about a mile away :-)

There are many manufacturers and sources for rxtruded alluminium profiles like Everskill industries, Grand Lattitude Industries.

Also chiming in for US suppliers - McMaster-Carr carries extruded aluminum (I think it is 8020) and I am always amazed at how cheap their shipping is.

I'm in the US and I ordered from Misumi. Cut to length, they came nicely packaged, quickly, and for a very reasonable price.

I haven't really priced things out in detail, but I see no way Graingers would be cheaper than a smaller company selling online, even with the added cost of shipping. Grainger charges premium prices for everything, I know this having dealt with them many times over the years for my job.

But, IF their prices on extrusion really are fair, maybe I'd give 'em a go. I have one about 1/4 mi. from work.

Misumi (Europe) have an extensive range of profiles and fittings. I have used them and I am in the UK.
There is no minimum order and shipping is reasonable.

They do not supply to individuals so you will need to open a company account.

Motedis have a UK site (www.motedis.co.uk) and supplied 20mm T-Slot profile for my Foldarap at very reasonable prices (would definitely use them again)

Anyone know where to get aluminium T slot 30x30 in Australia? Seems very hard to find here, I haven't been able to source it at all.

Interesting, but ehh, reasonable shipping to 'where'? I can imagine it's different for each country.

I guess I should have stated, Im in NYC area. $15 shipping, not terrible.

Anyone know typical shipping rate for Misumi (US)? Im trying to compare prices, but can't find the cost of shipping anywhere.
