Installing the Upper X Beam

The Upper X Beam consists of the track that the Z Head moves along, and two stop bars.

Note the home icon on one of the inner faces of the Upper X Beam. 

A: Wheel channels for the Z Head

B: Stop bar

Prior to installing the Upper X Beam, the assembly of the Y Bench and the Lower X Beam should look like this:

C: Y Bench

D: Lower X Beam

Before you begin, ensure the clamp handles on the ends of the Lower X Beam are in an upright (open) position.

Lift the Upper X Beam onto the Y Bench.

Ensure that the Home label on the inside of the Upper X Beam is facing the same direction as the Home label on the Y Bench.

Position the Upper X Beam so that the link cable (E) is on the same side as the stop button (F) on the Lower X Beam

E: Upper X Beam link cable

F: Lower X Beam stop button

Align the Upper X Beam so the forks on each end slide over the clamp bolts, parallel to the skids of the Lower X Beam:

G: Forks on the end of the Upper X Beam

H: Clamp bolts

I: Skids

The fitting should look like this:

J: Clamp handle

K: Skids

L: Forks on the end of the Upper X Beam

Secure the beam in place by pushing the clamp handles down. 

Do not twist the handle as this will change the clamping settings.

 


 

The clamp handles will close at an angle when they are tight. This is to enable easy access to unclamp.

Leave the handles in the downside position. 

Do not twist the handle as this will change the clamping settings.

The drag chain latch plates are on the far end of the Upper X Beam:

M: Drag chain latch plates

Slide the cables out by pulling the drag chain latch plates.

N: Power cable

O: Drag chain latch plates

P: Signal cable

Pull out the Z head power and signal cables so that they are laid flat and extend from the end of the Upper X Beam. 

Q: Power cable

R: Latch plate

S: Signal cable

The drag chain latch plates, power and signal cables will all attach to the Z Head in the next part of the assembly.
