  • Publication number: 20190029151
    Abstract: There is provided a clamp closed position checking mechanism 160 for checking whether or not an operation position of a clamp in a state where the clamp is closed is an appropriate position, in a component feeder which consecutively supplies one component by one component while positioning a component with leads P including multiple leads Le by a clamp 110 by guiding each of the leads to a defined position by a guide section 150, at a predetermined supply position SS. Due to bending of any of the multiple leads, even in a case where the bent lead is guided to the defined position of the other lead, by checking that the closed position of the clamp is not appropriate by using the clamp closed position checking mechanism, it is possible to easily detect the inappropriate state of the lead, such as the bending or the like of the lead, or the positioning of the lead at an inappropriate position.

  • Publication number: 20180368298
    Abstract: In a component mounting machine, before the suction nozzle held by the rotary head is automatically exchanged, the nozzle ID codes of all suction nozzles arranged on the nozzle station are continuously read at a high speed and stored in association with the position of each suction nozzle. Sequentially imaging the nozzle ID code display section of each suction nozzle of each column is performed without stopping the mark imaging camera while moving the camera in an arrangement direction of the suction nozzle of each column of the nozzle station. The movement direction of the camera is reversed each time the last imaging operation of one column is completed and the camera is moved to imaging an adjacent column and the nozzle ID code of each suction nozzle of each column read at the image processing is stored in the storage in association with the position of each suction nozzle.

  • Publication number: 20180279521
    Abstract: In component mounting device, if a rotary head held by a head holder greatly deviates from a specified reference, a CPU executes a process for a holding error. The process for the holding error includes a process of holding a rotary head again by the head holder or the like, for example. If the rotary head greatly deviates from a specified reference and the component mounting process is executed as is, there is a fear that poor precision will occur during component mounting. Therefore, the CPU does not execute the component mounting process but executes the process for the holding error.
