  • Patent number: 11032957
    Abstract: A loose component supply device including: component support member 150 configured to support multiple components in a scattered state; component collection container 180 configured to collect the components supported on the component support member via an opening in the component collection container; and a container oscillating device configured to scatter the components collected inside the component collection container onto the component support surface by swinging the component collection container such that the opening of the collection container faces the component support member. By this, because components are scattered on the component support member directly form the component collection container, the cycle time is shortened, thereby improving practicality of a component supply device.

  • Patent number: 10285318
    Abstract: A component inserting machine includes a gripping device which grips leads of an insert component which is supplied to a component supplying section using a pair of clamp members, X and Y robots which move the gripping device, a lead imaging device which images the leads which are gripped by the clamp members, and a control section which detects lead positions from an image containing the leads which are imaged by the lead imaging device and inserts the leads which are gripped by one of the clamp members into the insertion holes by moving the gripping device using the X and Y robots based on the lead positions.

  • Patent number: 10285316
    Abstract: The movement time of a board is shortened in an electronic component mounting device that performs heating and component mounting. Heating and component mounting are performed as a board is moved in the direction of arrow A; the board is moved by an in-conveyor device in the heating region, and by a shuttle device on rails in the component mounting region. When comparing chains with rails, the friction generated between the board is smaller with chains, thus the movement speed of the in-conveyor is faster. This means, compared to a case in which the board is moved by the rails and shuttle device in both the heating region and the component mounting region, the movement time of the board is shorter. Also, because there are no chains below the rails, the movable range of a flow tank is larger, and the component mountable region is larger.

  • Patent number: 10251282
    Abstract: Maintenance of a flow tank is facilitated. A sub-module is provided adjacent to a main module. A board is introduced in the sub-module, and is heated by a heater that is at a heating position, is moved to the main module, solder is applied by a flow tank in parallel with insertion of a component by a component insertion device, and thereby the component is mounted. If a maintenance condition is established, introduction of boards is stopped, the heater is moved to a standby position, and the flow tank is moved to a maintenance position of the sub-module. Maintenance is performed on the flow tank and since the component insertion device is not present above the flow tank, it is possible to facilitate inspection, removal, and the like of the flow tank.

  • Patent number: 9174315
    Abstract: In a component mounting method and apparatus capable of mounting components on a board having a non-planar component mounting surface, a board holding table in a board holding device is turned based on board holding device information and board information to direct a normal line to a mounting portion on the non-planar component mounting surface in the vertical direction. Thus, after being picked up and moved by a component loading device onto the normal line to the mounting portion, a component can be mounted through a movement of the component loading device in the vertical direction only. Further, compensation amounts for the position of the mounting portion are calculated based on a turn amount, the board holding device information and the board information, and a compensated mounting position is calculated from the compensation amounts and the board information accurately in the horizontal and vertical directions.
