The counterbalance by the tension spring generates torque at the base of the FaroArm. So to achieve optimum machine accuracy, the mounting must meet certain requirements.
NOTE: The FaroArm must be mounted in a upright position. Do not mount the FaroArm in an inverted (upside down) or sideways position.
To Fasten the FaroArm:
- Attach the 3.5" threaded ring and surface mount plate to any stable location. Tighten all mounting bolts to 100-inch pounds.
- Place the FaroArm on top of the 3.5” threaded ring.
- Screw the threaded collar clamp onto the base of the FaroArm and the 3.5” threaded ring.
- Use the wrench to tighten the threaded collar clamp.
