  • Publication number: 20200406570
    Abstract: In a box assembly device, a holding mechanism causes one of bottom boards to contact a first jig and folds the bottom board inside, while the holding mechanism holding the box material in a state where the box material is developed in a cylindrical shape from a folded state. The folding mechanism folds the bottom flap inside so as to overlap with one of the bottom boards. The holding mechanism causes the other bottom board to contact the second jig while holding the box material and folds the other bottom board inside and upwardly so as to overlap with the bottom flap to engage the bottom boards with each other.

  • Publication number: 20190159372
    Abstract: An electronic-component inserting device includes a component gripper configured to hold a main body of an electronic component, an operating member provided to the component gripper, a lead gripper configured to grip the leads of the electronic component held by the component gripper, and a moving device configured to move the component gripper in a first direction relatively to the lead gripper. The lead gripper has a pair of fingers configured to pinch the leads from both sides in second directions perpendicular to the first direction, and a biasing member configured to bias the pair of fingers so that fingertips of the fingers are opened. The fingers are provided with acted parts on which an acting force from the operating member acts so that the fingertips of the fingers are closed.
