  • Patent number: 11129316
    Abstract: A loose component supply device including component support member 150 configured to support components in a scattered state; and component supply apparatus 88 configured to store components and discharge components towards the component support member from discharge opening 98, wherein, in the component supply apparatus, conveyor belt 112 is arranged between storage section 100 that stores components and a discharge opening so as to extend diagonally upwards from the storage section on the side on which the discharge section is provided. Components housed in the housing section are discharged from the discharge opening towards the component support member by being conveyed by the conveyor belt. The component supply apparatus is removably mounted on the mounting section. Thus, because components are not discharged from the discharge opening unless the conveyor is operated, components do not fall from the discharge opening when the component supply apparatus is mounted on or removed from the mounting section.

  • Patent number: 8579097
    Abstract: A clutch release mechanism includes a fixed cam plate having a cylindrical boss portion, and a movable cam plate supported on the cylindrical boss portion through a cylindrical projecting portion thereof. A ball unit is retained on the cylindrical boss portion by a retainer, and a release member disengages a clutch by transmitting a thrust force, generated by relative turning between the fixed and movable cam plates which hold the ball unit therebetween, to a pressure-applying plate. A pressing member is pressed by the movable cam plate to transmit the thrust force to the release member. The cylindrical projecting portion of the movable cam plate projects toward the pressing member, and is fitted a the hollow portion thereof with a gap therebetween. The movable cam plate presses the pressing member so as to be relatively shiftable on a flat surface perpendicular to a pressing direction.
