Reference Manual SK16Page: 9MountingMOTOMANROBOTICS AB5. Mounting5.1 GeneralThe robot can be delivered in three different performance: floor-, wall- and ceiling mounting. For wall-mounted types, S-axis working range is restricted to ±30° and S-axis should be provided with a brake. For wall- and ceiling-mounted types, the robot should be mounted with four M16 hexagon socket head cap bolts with tensile strenght of 1200 N/mm² or higher. The tightening torque should be 210 Nm. For wall- and ceiling-mounted types, it is necessary to insure that the mounting can support the weight of the manipulator.Since installation environment has an effect on the positioning accuracy and the life of robot, the robot should be installed under the following prace. -0°C to +45°C (Ambient temperature). -Free from corrosive gases or liquid, or explosive gases. -Free from excessive vibration. -Free from large electrical noise (plasma).5.2 SafetyThe MOTOMAN-SK16 should be firmly mounted on a baseplate or foundation strong enough to support the robot and withstand repulsion force during acceleration and deceleration. See also chapter 2.3.4Install the safety guards before operating the machin. 4Dont start the robot without it is firmly mounted on the floor. 4Install the robot in a place where the robot with full arm length wont reach walls, safety guards or the controller.4Dont install a robot which is damaged or where parts are missing. 4Check that the shipping bolts and jigs have been removed.The safety fencing shall fulfill the demands in the EC-directive.5.3 Robot placed on a common baseThe common base should be in good quality and resistance. The surface shall be rugged to increase the friction between robot and baseplate, this to avoid the robot to move during operation. The thickness of the common base should be at least 40 mm. Mount the baseplate to the floor with M16-anchor bolt.
