This article describes how to install a Treon Industrial Node or Industrial Node 6 with the help of Treon Nut Adapter, with or without epoxy.

It is possible to install your Treon Industrial Node and Industrial Node 6 either with or without epoxy.

Option A: Nut adapter installation with epoxy:​

  • Minimum thread length can be less than 9 mm depending on the amount of epoxy​
  • Node alignment can be done manually​

Option B: Nut adapter installation without epoxy​:

  • Minimum thread length for the hole is 9 mm​
  • Manual alignment is not possible

 

Using a nut adapter enables attaching the Industrial Node to a spot with less available space in diameter, a shorter M8 opening with less threading and with additional epoxy to uneven surface. It is possible to manually align the Industrial Node.

Installation with a Nut Adapter requires a Treon Nut Adapter, a flat surface of 25 mm diameter, a hole for M8 bolt with 9.5 mm depth of threading, and optional epoxy.

What you need

For this installation method you will need:

  • Treon Nut Adapter
  • Hole drilled into the machine surface
  • Silicone grease
  • Torque wrench
  • Epoxy (only for installation method with epoxy)
  • Optional: Threadlocker

 

Step 1: Grease the Nut Adapter

Apply and spread the silicon grease to the whole area of the larger Nut Adapter surface. ​

Apply grease to clean surface
Grease around the adapter
Spread grease with finger

Step 2: Connect Adapter to Industrial Node

Now carefully screw the Nut Adapter to the thread of the Industrial Node.

Take Nut Adapter
Screw on Industrial Node thread
Screw in all the way

Step 3: Tighten the Connection

Set torque in torque wrench to exactly 8 Nm. The SW size is 22 mm. Hold node with the SW 30 spanner or wrench and tighten the Nut Adapter to 8 Nm.

Tighten with torque wrench

Step 4: Cleaning & Greasing Surface

Carefully clean the machine surface. Once it is clean, spread the silicon grease on the surface​. Cover the whole area that the Nut Adapter will sit on.

Clean the surface
Apply grease around M8 hole
Spread grease with finger

Option A: Installation with Epoxy

Step 5a (Epoxy): Prepare Epoxy

Put on protective gloves.

Cut a suitable slice of the epoxy. No mix it between your fingers until the two phases have mixed and the color is uniform.

Use the epoxy within 2 to 3 minutes after mixing!

Please note: We recommend the Wurth ‘Metal Epoxy Stick’ for this step and have received good results with it. Of course you can use any suitable high-quality epoxy.

Use metal epoxy
Cut a suitable piece
Take the epoxy
Knead the epoxy
Use when both phases fully mixed

Step 6a (Epoxy): Epoxy to Nut Adapter

Place the epoxy on the Nut Adapter bottom surface and shape it around bolt as shown on the picture.

Apply epoxy to Nut Adapter

Step 7a (Epoxy): Node to Machine Surface

Now carefully screw the Industrial Node to surface of your machine​. During the screwing make sure that the epoxy stays between the Nut Adapter and the machine surface by pressing it with your fingers.

Optionally, you can use a threadlocker if necessary.

Screw Industrial Node to thread hole
Keep epoxy between
Nut Adapter and surface

Step 8a (Epoxy): Node Alignment

After you have fully screwed the Industrial Node to your machine, align the Node to machine so that the node axis​ points directly toward the drive or the non-drive end of the machine.

Take the Node carefully
between fingers
Turn Node until
alignment is correct
Node should face drive or
non-drive end of machine

Wait until the epoxy is fully hardened before turning on the machine.

 

Option B: Installation without Epoxy

Step 5b (Without Epoxy): Screwing Node to Machine Surface

Carefully screw the Industrial Node to the cleaned and greased machine surface​.

Optionally, you can use a thread locker if necessary.

Take the Industrial Node
Screw into thread hole
in machine surface
Screw in all the way

Step 6b (Without Epoxy): Node to Machine Surface

Set the torque in the torque wrench to 8 Nm and carefully tighten the Industrial Node to the machine. The SW size is 30 mm.

Tighten with torque wrench

 

The Industrial Node or Industrial Node 6 is now fully installed!
