Mobile Plotter in a Box

Burbank Fire has had a mobile plotter for quite some time.  It was an HP Designjet 1055CM placed in a custom box to make it mobile.  It was time for a new plotter and this time it is an HP Designjet Z6200 which is quite a bit bigger.

To make it fit in a reasonable size box, one of the guys in our IT Department made custom short legs for it.  He is great with a welding torch!  You can see the original legs to the right of the plotter in the photo below.

Foot braces (black) were created to bolt onto the plotter’s original hardware (silver).

The custom box has a lid that comes off to expose the plotter for use.
