  • Publication number: 20200189108
    Abstract: An articulated robot includes an arm, an actuator, a storage device, and a control device. The storage device stores the correction parameter for correction accuracy required for each of the multiple work regions, which are segmented as the regions in which work on the work target object is performed in the movable region of the robot arm. When the work is instructed with designation of the target position, the control device acquires, from the storage device, a correction parameter corresponding to a work region to which the designated target position belongs, among the multiple work regions. Then, the control device controls the actuator by correcting the target position using the acquired correction parameter.

  • Patent number: 10667403
    Abstract: A manufacturing apparatus that includes a conveyance device that moves a stage, where an electronic device shaped by multiple layers is placed, in X-axis and Y-axis directions. A first shaping unit, a second shaping unit, and a component mounting unit are arranged within a range in which the stage can move. The manufacturing apparatus performs additive manufacturing of the electronic device on the stage by performing a sequential movement of the stage to respective working positions of different units. As a result, in this manufacturing apparatus, a workpiece on the stage does not have to be removed and repositioned during each work process such as shaping by a first shaping unit, shaping by a second shaping unit, and electronic component mounting by a component mounting unit.

  • Publication number: 20200163217
    Abstract: In a circuit forming device, resin laminated body is formed by curing an ultraviolet curable resin ejected by an ejecting device. Then, ultraviolet curable resin is ejected into cavity of the resin laminated body, and electronic component is placed on ultraviolet curable resin. Then, electronic component is cured and electronic component is fixed. In addition, since the ultraviolet curable resin is cured by only irradiating the ultraviolet curable resin with ultraviolet rays, it is possible to reduce the time required for fixing the component. In addition, by causing the ejection amount of the ultraviolet curable resin for fixing the component to correspond with at least one of the size and the weight of the electronic component, it is possible to properly mount the component at a planned mounting position by a self-alignment effect.
