The Original Machine Building System

The item Machine Building System began in 1976 in Solingen, Germany, when Gerrit Pies and Wolfgang Rixen recognized the opportunity for a standardized system of industrial components to be utilized for the design and construction of custom machines. This sparked a versatile and modular structural framing system that has become an international standard for manufacturing equipment and machine solutions. item’s Machine Building Kit now encompasses 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 Machine Building 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.

A myriad of custom mechanical solutions can be created using item's Machine Building Kit System components, including industrial workbenches and stairways and platforms
