  • Patent number: 10865313
    Abstract: Provided is a resin emulsion for a damping paint, the resin emulsion being capable of contributing to formation of a coating film to which swelling and peeling are unlikely to occur and having favorable mechanical stability. The resin emulsion for a damping paint contains a (meth)acrylic resin particle including a particle obtained by polymerizing a monomer component containing 50% by mass or more of a (meth)acrylic acid ester and an adsorbed protective layer obtained by allowing a polycarboxylic acid-based polymer compound having a structural unit derived from a carboxylic acid, or a salt or anhydride thereof to be adsorbed onto the surface of the particle. The (meth)acrylic resin particle has a ratio of an average particle diameter DA by means of a laser diffraction/scattering method to an average particle diameter DB by means of a dynamic light scattering method, DA/DB, of less than 1.

  • Patent number: 8844124
    Abstract: An electronic component mounting system and method is disclosed that can provide accurate operation instruction to a machine operator. The electronic component mounting system comprises a plurality of machines interlinked in series. A main screen, making up an operation instruction screen, is displayed on a display panel belonging to an operation target machine to be operated by the machine operator while a first sub-screen and a second sub-screen of the operation instruction screen are respectively displayed on display panels belonging to two adjacent machines placed adjacently on both sides of the operation target machine among the plurality of machines. Thus, even when a unit device has a small width such that a size restriction is imposed a display panel, accurate operation instruction, with a sufficient amount of information, can be provided by displaying the operation instruction screen on multiple display panels.

  • Patent number: 8544168
    Abstract: It is an objective to provide a part-mounting method that, even when parts are extremely small, makes it possible to mount the parts at a repair-requiring location without fail, to thus enhance a percentage of a non-defective substrate. In a part-mounting method, inspection is made as to whether or not a parts-missing location exists on a substrate Pb reloaded between a solder printer 2 and a first part-mounting machine 4A after having undergone manual repair by an operator OP, or the like, in connection with a repair-requiring location found through inspection performed after mounting of parts Pt, by use of an inspection camera 15A of a first part-mounting machine 4A. When a parts-missing location on the substrate Pb is found, the parts-missing location is identified. Subsequently, a mounting head 14A of the first part-mounting machine 4A and a mounting head 14B of a second part-mounting machine 4B mount a part Pt at the parts-missing location on the thus-identified substrate Pb.

  • Patent number: 8528198
    Abstract: When a component mounting process by mounting heads is executed on substrates which are positioned alternately by two substrate carrying lines, a determination is made on whether or not a mounting turn can be completed every time the mounting heads perform the mounting turn, and when it is determined that one of the mounting turns performed by the mounting head cannot be completed, a component mounting process is executed on the substrate which is positioned by the substrate carrying line which is opposite to the substrate carrying line.

  • Publication number: 20120062727
    Abstract: It is an objective to provide a part-mounting system that makes it possible to quickly ascertain a defective judgment location and input a result of judgment of the defective judgment location even if an operator is away from an inspection portion when the inspection portion has found a defective judgment location. An image of a location on a substrate Pb where a print status of solder Sd or a mounted status of parts Pt is judged as being defective by an inspection portion is displayed on all image display portions 31 of a plurality of operation panels 30 or some of the image display portions 31 selected by an operator OP. Through an operation input portion 32 of the operation panel 30 including the image display portion 31 on which the image of the defective judgment location is displayed, the operator OP can input a result of judgment made as to whether or not the print status of the solder Sd or the mounted status of the parts Pt at the defective judgment location is defective.
