Assembled End Effectors
All End Effectors use the same size inserts for attaching end of arm tooling.
Open the End Effector Kit on a large table or work surface.
Next Assemble all 6 ball joints with 1 aluminum washer and 1 nut as pictured below.
- Be certain to tighten the nut precisely so the washer can always rotate freely, but has minimal movement in other directions.
If assembling a composite end effector, glue on donuts as pictured below.
Lastly install all ball joints in End Effector, and tighten with wrenches.
- For end effectors with 2 nuts, use 2 wrenches, to tighten the nuts together.
- Be careful to make sure each aluminum washer maintains its ability to rotate, but has minimal movement in other directions.
- If washer rotation is not maintained, tightening force can damage the balljoint.
