Preparation

Important: Ensure the cables on the back of the robot have 60mm of clearance below the mounting surface (ie: mount the robot at the edge of a table). If the mounting surface does not have sufficient clearance, the mounting plate option described below may be required.

Required Hardware

  • Level
  • Drill
  • Drill Bit for 8mm Screw
  • 6mm Hex Key
  • (7) M8x12 SHCS (included)

Instructions

  1. Use a flat, level, sturdy surface, anchored to the floor, with a thickness of 15-50mm (0.75 - 2 in).
  2. Consider power outlet and pneumatic line locations, controller location, cable length, and workspace requirements when choosing a mounting location for the robot.
  3. Position the arm where you would like it to be mounted.
  4. Clearly mark each mounting location using a pen and the mounting holes on the robot as a guide. There will be a total of 7 locations.
  5. Set the arm aside.
  6. Drill and tap the holes to accommodate the M8x1.25 screws provided.
  7. Align the arm with the new holes and secure the robot arm using the screws provided.
