Modular aluminium frame

I'm looking to build a frame around the size of an 80cm cube.

I think a few EFers are quite handy and can give me some tips.

I'm looking to build a frame that is stiff and has as little flex as possible, while being easy to assemble and cheap. So no custom welding of steel.

Are there any standard modular aluminium rods/tube standards that you would recommend? e.g. slotted ones to allow easy joining and bracing?

The frame would need to support a bed and moving gantry weighing <10kg.

I've heard of aluminium T-slot but maybe there is something else? Also, where can I buy this in Switzerland (or any recommended mail order companies). Or any other ideas to make a stiff frame?
