The Y-direction moving slider 41 includes an X-direction moving slider 43 that is moved in a horizontal X direction orthogonal to the Y direction by an X-axis servo motor (not shown).
[0042]
As shown in FIG. 6, a mounting head 45 provided with a suction nozzle 44 for sucking the electronic component P and mounting it on the substrate S is attached to the X-direction moving slider 43. The mounting head 45 has a head frame 46 attached to the X-direction moving slider 43. In the lower part of the head frame 46, a cylindrical nozzle holder 47 that holds a plurality of (for example, eight) suction nozzles 44 in a vertical direction (Z-axis direction) upward and reciprocally holds the suction nozzles 44 around an axis. Mounted as possible. The nozzle holder 47 is intermittently rotated by an R-axis motor 48 attached to the head frame 46 so that the suction nozzle 44 stops at a predetermined position. The suction nozzle 44 stopped at a mounting point (mounting station) for mounting the electronic component P among predetermined positions is moved up and down by a Z-axis feed screw 49 a driven by a Z-axis motor 49. Each of the suction nozzles 44 is connected to a negative pressure supply via a pipe provided with an on-off valve (all are not shown). The suction nozzle 44 is switched and selected according to the type of the electronic component P. Note that only one suction nozzle 44 may be provided instead of a plurality.
[0043]
Next, in the above-described embodiment, when changing the setting of the guide rail widths of the first and second transfer devices 21 and 22 according to the width of the substrate S to be transferred, the reference support positioned and fixed at the reference position is used. The other end movable support member 80 and the first and second intermediate movable support members 60 and 70 are adjusted to respective predetermined positions with respect to the member 50 and fixed. Specifically, first, the position of the first intermediate movable support member 60 is adjusted and fixed according to the substrate width to be transferred by the first transfer device 21, and then, the fixed first In the range between the intermediate movable support member 60 and the support frame 91, the positions of the second intermediate movable support member 70 and the other end movable support member 80 are set to be transported by the second transport device 22 at the interval therebetween. It is desirable that the substrate be adjusted so as to have the same width as the substrate and fixed.
[0044]
Thus, the reference support member 50, the first intermediate movable support member 60 adjacent to the reference support member 50, the other end movable support member 80, and the second intermediate movable support member 70 adjacent to the other end movable support member 80 are respectively formed. The width of each of the guide rail pairs 51, 61, 71, 81 mounted opposite to each other is set according to the width of the substrate S to be conveyed. Therefore, the board transfer device 20 can transfer not only boards of the same width but also boards of different widths in parallel in two rows, so that the board can be efficiently transferred without increasing the size of the board transfer device and thus the electronic component mounting device. Can be transported.
[0045]
When the above-mentioned other-end movable support member 80 and the first and second intermediate movable support members 60 and 70 are adjusted in position and fixed to predetermined positions, respectively, the movable support members 60, 70, 80 are respectively moved, so that the guide rails 61, 71, 81 and the conveyor belts 62, 72, provided on the other end movable support member 80 and the first and second intermediate movable support members 60, 70, respectively. 82 can be automatically moved to a predetermined position.
[0046]
The positions of the other end movable support member 80 and the first and second intermediate movable support members 60 and 70 may be adjusted to arrange the guide rails 61, 71 and 81 at the positions shown in FIG. According to this, the maximum width of the substrate S that can be transferred by the substrate transfer device 20 is substantially the same as the width in the direction orthogonal to the longitudinal direction of the guide rail of the substrate transfer device 20. Therefore, a wide substrate can be transferred without expanding the substrate transfer device in the orthogonal direction.
[0047]
Further, the positions of the other end movable support member 80 and the first and second intermediate movable support members 60 and 70 may be adjusted so that the guide rails 61, 71 and 81 are arranged at the positions shown in FIG. According to this, in the case of a so-called double device type in which the component supply devices are arranged on both sides of the substrate transport device and electronic components can be supplied from both component supply devices, the width is sufficiently smaller than the maximum width that can be transported (for example, the maximum width). (Half of the substrate), the first and fourth guide rails 51 and 81 arranged on both sides are arranged at the shortest position from the component supply device, so that the throughput of the component mounting device deteriorates. Can be prevented.
[0048]
In addition, since the component supply device 30 for supplying the electronic component P mounted on the substrate S is provided at one end of the substrate transfer device 20, the component supply device 30 is mounted on the reference support member 50 and fixed at a predetermined reference position. The distance from the component supply device 30 to the reference guide rail 51 does not change even if the width of the guide rail pair 51, 61 on one end side is changed because the guide rail 51 is provided adjacent to the reference guide rail 51. On the other hand, conventionally, the guide rail adjacent to the component supply device 30 was moved to change the width of the guide rail pair. Therefore, if the width of the guide rail pair at one end was changed, the distance from the component supply device 30 to the adjacent guide rail was changed. Distances were different. Therefore, as the width of the substrate S to be conveyed is smaller than the maximum width that can be conveyed, the shortest distance from the component supply device 30 to the substrate S can be suppressed shorter than before, and the throughput of the electronic component mounting device is improved. Can be done.
[0049]
In the above-described embodiment, not only one transport rotary shaft 28 but also the same number of transport rotary shafts 28 as the transport paths (transport devices) provided in a plurality of rows are provided. 28 may be separately rotated to drive the conveyor belt pairs of each transport path independently. According to this, when each rotating shaft is rotated by the driving motor, the respective driving pulley pairs respectively engaged with the rotating shaft are rotated in synchronization, and the conveyor belt pairs of the respective transport devices are synchronously driven independently of each other. You. Therefore, the transfer of the substrate can be individually controlled in each transfer device. In addition, since the rotating shafts are respectively supported on the reference support member and the other end fixed supporting member which are positioned and fixed, the rotating shafts can be reliably supported.
[0050]
Further, in the above embodiment, two transport paths are provided, but three or more transport paths may be provided. In this case, one or more pairs of intermediate movable support members are further provided between the first and second intermediate movable support members 60 and 70, and a pair of guide rails and a conveyor belt are provided on the intermediate movable support members so as to face each other. What should I do? According to this, when the transfer width of the transfer device is set according to the width of the substrate to be transferred, the other end movable support member 80 and each intermediate movable support member 80 are set based on the reference support member 50 positioned and fixed at the reference position. The members are adjusted in position to predetermined positions and fixed. Thereby, the reference support member 50, the first intermediate movable support member 60 adjacent to the reference support member 50, the other end movable support member 80, the second intermediate movable support member 70 adjacent to the other end movable support member 80, and The width of each guide rail pair mounted opposite to each of the intermediate movable support members adjacent to each other is set according to the width of the substrate to be conveyed. Therefore, the substrate transfer device can transfer substrates of different widths in parallel in two rows or three or more rows, so that the substrates can be transferred efficiently without increasing the size of the substrate transfer device.
[0051]
Further, in the above-described embodiment, the intermediate movable supporting members adjacent to each other and each of which is provided with a guide rail constituting a different pair of guide rails (for example, the first and second intermediate movable supporting members 60 and 70). ) Are separately formed and moved separately, but these intermediate movable support members adjacent to each other may be integrally formed and moved simultaneously.
[0052]
In this embodiment, when the guide rail widths of the first and second transfer devices 21 and 22 are respectively changed according to the width of the substrate S to be transferred, the transfer is first performed by the first transfer device 21. The position of the first and second intermediate movable support members 60 and 70 is adjusted and fixed in accordance with the substrate width of the second substrate, and then the second transfer is performed based on the position of the fixed second intermediate movable support member 70 as a reference. It is desirable to position and fix the position of the other end movable support member 80 according to the substrate width to be transferred by the device 22.
[0053]
According to this, when the transfer width of the transfer device 21 (or 22) is changed according to the substrate width, the number of intermediate movable members to be positioned is reduced, so that the number of positioning steps can be reduced. Further, when the intermediate movable member is automatically moved, the number of intermediate movable members to be positioned is reduced, so that the drive structure for moving the intermediate movable member can be simplified.
