Assembly of X-axis

Installation of Plate

Insert V-slot 1210mm between mini v plate_C rollers.


Next, install FLM_mini v plate_R_2040_1m on the left side (in the picture) of V-slot 1210mm.
Required parts are shown in the picture.


Insert two M5 T nuts into V-slot 1210mm from the left.


Install FLM_mini v plate_R_2040_1m at the position as M5 T nut using four M5×8 low head bolts. Align the position of FLM_mini v plate_R_2040_1m so that “the end of V slot matches perfectly with the groove on the back of FLM_mini v plate_R_2040_1m.” (See picture below)


Next, install FLM_mini v plate_L_2040_1m on the right end (opposite side of earlier installation).
Required parts are the following.


Following the same procedure as before, insert four M5 T nut in V slot from right side.


Similarly, align the position of FLM_mini v plate_L_2040_1m so that “the end of V slot matches perfectly with the groove on the back of FLM_mini v plate_L_2040_1m.” (See picture below)


Installation of Motor

Install motor onto the side of FLM_mini v plate_L_2040_1m using M5×8 low head bolt and M5 T nut.
Adjustment of the position of “x-axis motor unit” will be done later, so fix temporarily for now.


Insert two M5 T nuts in the place shown in the picture and install “x-axis motor unit” with two M5×8 low head bolts. For a later stage, fix “x-axis motor unit” temporarily so that spinner of the stepping motor just hits FLM_mini v plate_L_2040_1m.


Installation of Belt

How to Install Timing Belt

For the installation method, see the timing belt installation section in “Assembly of X-axis” located in the FABOOL Laser Mini manual for better understanding.

Insert one end of the timing belt in the hole on the left side of mini v plate C. Insert it until roughly 2-3cm (approx. 1 in) sticks out and fix with a cable tie.


For 1.0m kit, pull the timing belt of x-axis through the V-slot and fix on the other side since width of the V-slot on x-axis is wider than normal FABOOL Laser Mini.


Put the timing belt through the hole indicated in red.


Hold up the x-axis as in the picture and keep inserting until the timing belt comes out from the other side.


Once it comes out from the other side, put the other side of timing belt in the hole on the right side of mini v plate C and fix with a cable tie. Insert it until 6-7cm (approx. 2.5 in) sticks out.


Next, to tighten the timing belt, loosen the screw fixing the “x-axis motor unit”, pull it in the direction shown in the picture, and tighten the screw again. Make sure that the motor and V-slot align parallel to one another.


Tightness of Timing Belt

For the tightness of timing belt, see the tightness of timing belt section in “Assembly of X-axis” in the normal FABOOL Laser Mini manual.

Mounting of Screws to Fix Laser Cables

Mount M4×40 hex socket head cap bolt on mini v plate_C. Tighten it until it stops.
