In 1976 Gerrit Pies and Wolfgang Rixen pioneered a standardized way to design and construct custom machines with industrial components. Yes item invented the machine building kit!
Their versatile and modular structural framing systems have become the international standard for manufacturing equipment and machine solutions. Today item produces over 300 extruded aluminum profiles as well as thousands of high quality components that can be used to create machine bases and frames.
One of the many competitive advantages of item’s MB Kit System is reliability and compatibility with the machine base and structural framing components. When utilizing item’s extruded aluminum profiles, you are assured to be working with high quality components that are compatible across item’s Machine Building Kit System. Compared to other extruded aluminum systems, the differences in extrusion quality are obvious from a side-by-side comparison, though the advantages go far beyond aesthetics. The high straightness tolerance and precision of the item extrusions enable us to design and build custom linear actuators with over 100 feet of travel.
