  • Patent number: 10938283
    Abstract: An assembling device (10) includes a first arranging section (11), a second arranging section (12), eighteen support arms (13) for supporting coil segments (4), a feeding part (14), and a controller (16). When the controller (16) drives a motor (35) to rotate the feeding part (14) in a counterclockwise direction D1, a pressing roller (14c) rolls in the direction D1 along a first guide portion (11a), and presses a base part (21) of the eighteenth support arm (13) in the direction D1. Thus, the first to eighteenth support arms (13) are rotated in the direction D1 to insert the base parts (21) of the first to eighteenth support arms (13) sequentially in a second guide portion (12a) of the second arranging section (12), so that the first to eighteenth support arms (13) are rotated in a clockwise direction D2 to assemble the coil segments (4) while overlapping with one another.

  • Patent number: 10923993
    Abstract: An alignment apparatus is configured to include an alignment mechanism. At least one of first legs or second legs of electric conductors are retained so as to be aligned in an arcuate shape or a circular shape by a plurality of holders that make up the alignment mechanism. Thereafter, the plurality of holders are rotated. Accordingly, the electric conductors, which are aligned in an arcuate or circular shape, are rotated and arranged on the same circumference. In other words, the electric conductors are aligned in an annular shape.

  • Patent number: 10778072
    Abstract: A control device moves a split claw (11) holding a projecting portion (4d) of an eighth-layer coil segment (4) in a counterclockwise direction D1. At this time, the control device moves first to third extended blades (13a) to (13c) in an outward direction D3 so that the projecting portion (4d) of the eighth-layer coil segment (4) is bent in the outward direction D3. Then, the control device moves the first to third extended blades (13a) to (13c) in an inward direction D4. Through the above steps, the projecting portion (4d) of the eighth-layer coil segment (4) is bent in the counterclockwise direction D1 while being bent in the outward direction D3. As a result, a return force tending to return in the inward direction D4 is generated by an elastic deformation force.
