  • Patent number: 8125651
    Abstract: An object is to provide a substrate conveyance apparatus and a substrate detection device capable of improving flexibility in arrangement layout. The substrate detection device includes a projector 41 for projecting inspection light 40 so as to pass through a predetermined position on a path of a substrate 4 conveyed by conveyance belts 26, a light receiver 42 for receiving the inspection light 40 projected by the projector 41, and a detector (a control device 15) for detecting that the substrate 4 reaches the predetermined position based on a decrease in the amount of received light of the inspection light 40 received by the light receiver 42 when the substrate 4 conveyed by the conveyance belts 26 reaches the predetermined position and a portion of the inspection light 40 is blocked by the substrate 4.

  • Patent number: 7549566
    Abstract: A heating characteristic value at any measuring point of an object at any measuring location of a heating furnace is determined as a single invariable by using temperature (Tint and Ts) measured at the measuring point of the object and heating temperature (Ta) and heating time (t) at the measuring location of the heating furnace. The heating characteristic value (m-value) may be calculated without using physical characteristics of the object. By using the m-value, a temperature profile of the object heated under a modified heating condition may be simulated in a short period of time without actually heating and measuring the temperature of the object at a high accuracy level. By using such a simulation, an appropriate heating condition for heating an object in accordance with a desired heating condition may easily be determined.

  • Publication number: 20060136786
    Abstract: A method for monitoring a mounting tact of a component mounting apparatus including a component supplier for supplying a component and a component holder for holding the component from the component supplying device and mounting the component onto a circuit board. The method includes collecting and monitoring a mounting tact result value of the component mounting apparatus during a mounting operation via a communication system. The method further includes calculating a tact loss corresponding to an amount by which the mounting tact result value is greater than a standard mounting tact and monitoring the calculated tact loss.
