  • Patent number: 9688064
    Abstract: A screen printing apparatus comprises print executing parts 20A, 20B, first and second substrate loading parts En1, En2 and a substrate unloading part Ex, and first and second substrate support tables 10A, 10B for supporting a substrate W to enable printing thereon by the print executing parts 20A, 20B. The first substrate support table 10A moves between a first receiving position where the substrate W loaded from the first substrate loading part En1 is received, and a sending position where the substrate W is unloaded from the substrate unloading part Ex. The second substrate support table 10B moves between a second receiving position where the substrate W loaded from the second substrate loading part En2 is received, and the sending position. The print executing parts 20A, 20B are respectively placed at positions on the substrate support tables 10A, 10B where printing on the substrate W is enabled.

  • Patent number: 9326434
    Abstract: A parts feeding device which is equipped in a surface mounting machine body includes a drive unit for feeding a parts feeding tape which houses parts, and a control unit for controlling the drive unit. The control unit includes a detection unit for detecting execution of work for removing the parts feeding device from the surface mounting machine body, and a pullback execution unit for causing the drive unit to execute a process of pulling back the parts feeding tape, which has become empty as a result of feeding the parts, when the execution of work for removing the parts feeding device is detected by the detection unit.

  • Patent number: 9296198
    Abstract: A screen printing apparatus provided with a print executing part, a substrate loading part, a substrate unloading part and a transferring and holding device. The transferring and holding device includes a clamp unit. The transferring and holding device is configured to transfer the substrate to a print executing position upon holding the substrate with the clamp unit so that the print executing part enables performing printing at a substrate standby position. A substrate recognition camera enables imaging in the course of the transfer of the substrate.
