T-slot Frame - Cover Strips

I created this aluminum extrusion frame as a Weldment. To reduce contamination in manufacturing, our assembly lines require plastic cover strips in all the t-slots. That's 16 extrusions x 4 plastic strips each = 64 parts I'll have to configure to the correct lengths, and mate in 3 axes each (192 mates!).

 

I'll be creating a number of frame assemblies in the future. Is there a way to automate or semi-automate this process?
