    Hi,

    Can someone please tell me what the word "fixing" means in the following sentence?

    Loosen screws A fixing the R1 origin sensor (DAS01) and move the sensor in the direction of the arrow to adjust the position to meet the standard.

    Re: Need help with a word

    Loosen screws “A” fixing the R1 origin sensor (DAS01) and move the sensor in the direction of the arrow to adjust the position to meet the standard.

    This is "to fix" meaning to fasten/attach something securely to something else.
    "The sign was too heavy and every time we tried to fix it to the wall it fell down".

    So, your example says: "Loosen the screws marked "A" fastening (that fasten) the R1 origin sensor (to something)...".
