Continued from Assembly of 'Aibo' Robot Dog (3)

The assembly of the aibo continued. This time, the actuator that moves the head up and down was attached. Many electric lines sticking out on the side of the head were set in order and fixed in place.

A single-axis actuator that moves the head up and down is being attached. The same actuator is also used for the legs, etc. It is very small.

The single-axis actuator is being attached.

A metal plate is being attached to the reverse side. The metal plate and a black plastic part constitute a bearing.

The metal plate was inserted into a hole so that it could be fixed.

It was turned upside down and, together with the axis, fixed with screws. To improve strength, a metal plate was also used on the side of the plastic part.

After screws were applied, the assembly of the movable part that moves the head up and down was completed.
