Extrusion

MAXTube Extrusion

MAXTube is compatible with the REV ION System and is a strong extruded aluminum tubing (Aluminum 6061) that features positional hole patterns that make robot structures easier to build.
MAXTube comes in three extrusion profiles: 1x1in Tube, 2x1in Tube, and 2x1in Light Tube.
All 1in sides of the MAXTube extrusion have a nut groove inside to fit #10 nuts, making assembly easier by helping to retain nuts where a wrench can't reach.
Use Standard 2x1 Tube for a more secure bearing fit and 2x1 Light Tube where weight is a critical factor

MAXTube Hole Patterns

MAX Pattern

Some MAXTube features the MAX Pattern, combination of #10 holes in a 1/2in pitch grid and the MAXSpline bore every 2in. This repeats down the length of channel to mount bearings, MAX Hubs, shafts, brackets, and more.

Grid Pattern

2x1in MAXTube that features Grid Pattern has three rows of #10 holes on a 1/2in pitch. The Grid Pattern is ideal for rapidly prototyping structures with our 1in brackets.

1in Extrusion

The 1in Extrusion (REV-21-1000) has slots on on all four sides that accept standard #10 Hardware, including low-profile nylock nuts. Rather than using a T-nut, which is more expensive, slide a #10 hex head screw along the slot and adjust brackets and other build materials as needed. All holes in the 1in Extrusion can be tapped with a 10-32 tap, consistent with the REV ION Standards. The corners can also accept 1/16in thick flat stock.
