The removable bed comes as a pre-built assembly. It sits on top of the machine frame, with supporting framework bolted on beneath the top plates. The supporting structure of the removable bed then recesses into the area inside the machine frame.
When fitted, the removable bed reduces the Z clearance by 16 mm, the depth of the top T-Groove plates. There is then 60 mm thickness of supporting structure framework beneath those top plates, making the overall depth of the removable bed 76 mm.
For the machines supplied before the 2016 face-lift, the removable bed's overall size is 1330 x 640 x 76mm
For the machines supplied after the 2016 face-lift, the removable bed's overall size is 1390 x 640 x 76mm
