Floor Plate Assembly
The floor plate assembly is mounted underneath the Y-Axis assembly. It houses the controller, two valves for vacuum and pressure and a USB-Hub. The hub is used to connect to the controller and the two USB-Cameras. Mounted at the side of the floor plate there is a connection box for vacuum, pressure, power supply from the external control box and the main USB connector.
The complete machine is mounted onto the floor plate so that it can be folded up. This feels like repairing a car and all the parts inside are easily accessible.
A big part of the bottom plate is empty. The free space is used for the cables and tubes that run to the axes. The cables can move freely in this area.
