Press one of the vacuum tubes onto the inlet of the vacuum pump. Then press the inline filter onto the open end of the tube. Then press the second vacuum tube onto the open end of the inline filter.
The following step requires the z-axis cable carrier to be loaded with cables and tubing before installing in the z-axis. Do not proceed unless you have the cable carrier loaded.
Position the loaded z-axis cable carrier in the cable carrier supports such that the camera is located at the bottom of the extrusion. Secure the cable carrier to the vertical cable carrier support using two M5 x 16mm screws and M5 flange locknuts.
Note: not all cables are shown
Feed the z-axis motor cable up through the slots in the four cable carrier supports and the slot in the z-axis motor mount. Then plug the cable into the motor.
Feed the vacuum pump cable up through the slot in the first cable carrier support and then plug the connectors into the vacuum pump’s terminals.
Mount the 50mm vertical motor housing using two M5 x 10mm screws and one 60mm nut bar. The housing should fit snugly in the motor mount’s recessed lip. The top of the motor housing should also be flush with the top of the extrusion, which may require a slight adjustment of the motor mount’s position.
Slide the shaft coupler onto the motor shaft, ensuring that the setscrews are aligned with the flat sides of the motor shaft. Ensure there is approximately 1-3mm of space between the end of the motor shaft and the end of the leadscrew - they should not be touching inside the coupler. Tighten the setscrews.
