Can I request custom cuts? Does OpenBuilds offer tapping services?

Absolutely! OpenBuilds is here to cater to your specific requirements. Here's are the details:

Custom Cuts:

If you need V-Slot Linear Rail in a custom length, we've got you covered. Just follow these steps:

  1. Add the closest length to your desired cut (a length longer than what you need) to your cart.
  2. At checkout, include a note detailing your exact requirements.
  3. Please remember that the tolerance for custom cuts is +/- 1mm, and requests must be in whole millimeter increments.
  4. In some cases, purchasing a standard length at regular retail prices may be necessary when requesting a custom length.
  5. Keep in mind that custom length V-Slot and C-Beam Linear Rails are not eligible for returns.

Note: 100mm is the shortest available length. Allow 5mm per cut to account for the width of the industrial saw blade.

Tapping Services:

Yes, tapping is available! Feel free to reach out to our customer service for more information about this service.

Cutting V-Slot and OpenRail:

For cutting V-Slot Linear Rail, you can use a hacksaw or chop saw. For more details and safety guidelines, check out our forum's guide on Cutting Aluminum Extrusion. Always follow the safety instructions of your equipment and ensure you wear safety glasses while cutting.

However, when it comes to OpenRail, cutting can be complex and potentially risky. We recommend requesting custom lengths pre-cut when placing your order. Additionally, remember that OpenRail sections can be joined end-to-end when longer lengths are needed.

For any further inquiries or assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out.
