    Abstract: In attachment system provided with an industrial robot having a hand movable at an arm tip, a base is attached to the hand. The base supports a plurality of suction pads such that angles of virtual suction surfaces including suction pad ends intersect each other in a hand operating space. Under control of a control device, the respective pads suction a sealing material at the respective suction surfaces, and the position and orientation of the base is controlled in the operating space such that partial suction surfaces face a designated attachment position on the object. Further, an attachment surface of the sealing material is partially attached to the designated attachment position on the object, in a state the sealing material to part of which the partial suction pads are suctioned is still faced to the designated attachment position. Such steps are repeated for the remaining attachment positions of the object.
