  • Publication number: 20190357396
    Abstract: A loose component supply device in which components scattered on stage are imaged by camera. Because the viewing angle of the camera is ?>0, a side surface of the component is imaged. Based on the image data of the component, an index value specifying a size of the side surface of the component is calculated. Then, in a case in which the calculated index value matches a set value, it is determined that it is possible to hold the component. In other words, in a case in which there is a certain distance between multiple components, from imaging a side surface of the component, if an index value that specifies the size of the side surface of the component matches the set value, it is determined that it is possible to hold the component.

  • Publication number: 20190250584
    Abstract: If the moving direction of a suction nozzle during raising and lowering deviates from a vertical direction, appropriate work cannot be guaranteed because the holding position of a component by the suction nozzle will vary depending on the holding height of the component by the suction nozzle. Thus, a component loaded at a specified height (H) position from the upper surface of a stage is held by a suction nozzle, and that component is loaded at a specified position. Then, the component is imaged and the loading position (first height component loading position) of the component is calculated. Further, the component loaded on the stage is held by the suction nozzle and the component is loaded at the above specified position. Then, the component is imaged and the component loading position (second height component loading position) is calculated. Next, the deviation amount between the first height component loading position and the second height component loading position is calculated.

  • Publication number: 20190239399
    Abstract: A component supply device that images stage on which multiple leaded components are supported in a scattered state, and holds a component supported on the stage using a component holding tool based on the image data, wherein multiple stages of different colors are prepared, and a stage from among the multiple stages a stage with a color different to a component that is planned to be supplied is removably attached to component support member. By this, for example, in a case in which a component planned to be supplied is white, by attaching a black stage to the component support section, due to the contrast between the background and the target object, it is possible to clearly recognize the white component supported on the black stage.

  • Patent number: 10233030
    Abstract: For a component receiving member provided with a component reception recess shaped according to a component that is a storage target, and side wall section that a component held by suction nozzle contacts when moved in the left-right direction, when the component is released in a state contacting the side wall section, the component is stored in the component reception recess by leads of the component falling along a tapered surface and the component rotating 90 degrees due to its own weight. Therefore, even in a case in which the component is held by suction nozzle with an upper surface facing up, the component is stored in the component reception recess with the upper surface facing up by the component rotating 90 degrees at the component receiving member.
