Louis Malo Hardware Engineering Manager / Feb 5th, 2020

We’ve expanded our hardware library, adding several parts that complement machines designed on the platform. The latest part release focuses on safety cables, doors, machine feet, material handling equipment, and robot plates. As with all Vention parts, these components are compatible with the entire Vention library and can be mounted using a standard M8 bolt.

Heavy-Duty Levelling Foot


Vention offers a variety of industrial-level leveling feet to improve the stability of robot bases and automation equipment.The new M14 x 66 mm leveling foot with a 120-mm pad is made for precise alignment of linear axes on heavy automated equipment. These leveling feet can support loads up to 1,100 kg. With a stud made of zinc-plated steel and pad made of die-cast zinc, this foot is robust and suitable for industrial environments. The foot base also has two 9-mm holes for optional floor mounting and comes with a removable anti-slip plate. Try the Leveling Foot in MachineBuilder.
