The Y moving body 116a is provided so as to be movable in the Y direction along a guide portion (not shown) by a drive source (not shown).

  The loader head 111 is provided below the Y moving body 116a. The workpiece W gripped by the loader chuck 112 of the loader head 111 is driven by the X driving unit 114, the Z driving unit 115, and the Y driving unit 116, respectively, so that the X direction, the Y direction, the Z direction, or a combination thereof is combined. Conveyed in the direction. The driving of the loader device 110 configured as described above is controlled by the control device 130 described later.

  The processing apparatus 120 includes spindles 121 and 122, turrets 123 and 124, and a work carry-in unit 125. The main shafts 121 and 122 are arranged side by side in the X direction, and are respectively rotated around the central axes AX1 and AX2 by a driving device (not shown). A plurality of grasping claws 121a and 122a capable of gripping the workpiece W are provided at the + Z side ends of the main shafts 121 and 122, respectively. The turret 123 is disposed on the −X side of the main shaft 121. The turret 124 is disposed on the + X side of the main shaft 122.

  The turrets 123 and 124 are each rotated about an axis parallel to the Z direction by a driving device (not shown). A plurality of cutting tools (not shown) are held on the peripheral surfaces of the turrets 123 and 124, and a desired cutting tool is selected by rotating the turrets 123 and 124. As the cutting tool, a rotating tool such as a drill or an end mill may be used in addition to a cutting tool for cutting the workpiece W. Further, the turrets 123 and 124 are movable with respect to the workpiece W in, for example, the X direction and the Z direction by a driving device (not shown). However, the number of the main shafts 121 and 122 and the turrets 123 and 124 is not limited to two. For example, one or both of the main shaft and the turret may be provided.

  A workpiece W to be processed is placed on the workpiece carry-in unit 125. For example, a fixed table is used as the workpiece loading unit 125, but the workpiece loading unit 125 is not limited thereto, and a conveyor, a rotary mounting table, or the like may be used. The work carry-in part 125 may also serve as a work W carry-out part, and this carry-out part may be arranged in a part different from the work carry-in part 125. The driving of the processing device 120 configured as described above is controlled by the control device 130 described later.

  The control device 130 comprehensively controls operations of the loader device 110 and the processing device 120 based on a predetermined processing program. Note that the control device 130 may be connected to a host control device (not shown) or the like via a wired or wireless connection. In this case, the control device 130 may control the operations of the loader device 110 and the processing device 120 based on a program stored in the storage unit of the host control device.

  The operation panel 140 is an operation device for the industrial machine 200 operated by an operator. The operation panel 140 is connected to the control device 130 via a wire or wirelessly. The operation panel 140 includes a display unit 141 such as a liquid crystal display and various switches 142. The operation panel 140 is used for operations such as program switching and various settings of the control device 130 by an operator, for example.

  In the present embodiment, the operation terminal 100 shown in FIGS. 2 and 3 is used as a terminal for operating the operation of the industrial machine 200. The storage unit 80 of the operation terminal 100 (mobile communication device MB) stores information on each part of the industrial machine 200 that is the operation target of the operation terminal 100. For example, the loader chuck 112, the X drive unit 114, and Z of the loader device 110 are stored. Information such as the driving unit 115 and the Y driving unit 116 is stored.

  Next, the operation of the industrial machine system SYS configured as described above will be described. First, the control device 130 arranges the loader head 111 of the loader device 110 shown in FIG. The moving body 116a is moved in the −Y direction. And the control apparatus 130 hold | maintains the workpiece | work W previously arrange | positioned at the workpiece carrying-in part 125 with a grasping nail | claw.

  Next, the control device 130 directs the loader chuck 112 and the workpiece W in the −Z direction. Thereafter, the control unit moves the loader head 111 in the + Y direction by the Y driving unit 116 and arranges it at a predetermined height position. Next, the control device 130 moves the loader head 111 in the + X direction to place the loader head 111 and the workpiece W, for example, above the main shaft 121 (+ Y side). Hereinafter, a case where the workpiece W is arranged on the spindle 121 will be described as an example. When the work W is disposed on the main shaft 122, the loader head 111 and the work W are disposed above the main shaft 122.

  Next, the control device 130 moves the Y moving body 116 a in the −Y direction and makes the workpiece W face the main shaft 121. Then, the control device 130 moves the Z moving body 115 a in the −Z direction and holds the workpiece W on the grasping claw 121 a of the main shaft 121. Thereafter, the Z moving body 115a is moved in the + Z direction and the + Y direction, and the loader head 111 is returned. And the control apparatus 130 processes the workpiece | work W based on a predetermined processing recipe using the tool not shown provided in the turret 123. FIG.

  After machining, the control device 130 causes the loader chuck 112 to transfer the workpiece W from the spindle 121. Specifically, the control device 130 first moves the Y moving body 116 a again in the −Y direction so that the loader chuck 112 faces the workpiece W. Next, the loader head 111 is moved in the −Z direction, and the workpiece W is held by the grasping claw of the loader chuck 112. Next, the control device 130 opens the grasping claw 121 a of the spindle 121 and passes the workpiece W to the loader chuck 112.

  After delivering the workpiece W, the control device 130 causes the X driving unit 114, the Z driving unit 115, and the Y driving unit 116 to move the X moving body 114a, the Z moving body 115a, and the Y moving body 116a in the X direction and the Z direction. And the workpiece W is transported to a predetermined transport destination such as a workpiece unloading section (not shown).

  In such an industrial machine system SYS, for example, when teaching the loader device 110, the operation of the industrial machine 200 is stopped and the operation of the loader device 110 is performed manually. When performing such a manual operation, the operator holds the operation terminal 100 and confirms the operation part of the loader device 110 nearby.

  In this case, the operator first activates the operation terminal 100 and then activates an application for operating the industrial machine 200 by operating the touch panel 60, for example. After the application is started, when the operator operates the button 21 of the operation unit 20, the control unit 70 sets the operation mode to the first mode. Next, when the operator rotates the dial 22, the control unit 70 performs control so that an operation target is selected according to the operation of the dial 22. For example, when teaching the position (first position) P1 at which the loader chuck 112 receives the workpiece W, the operator first selects the X driving unit 114, the Z driving unit 115, or the Y driving unit 116 of the loader device 110 as appropriate.

  For example, when the operator selects the X drive unit 114 as an operation target, the control unit 70 issues an operation command to the industrial machine 200 so that the X drive unit 114 operates according to the operation of the operation unit 20. This command is transmitted to the industrial machine 200 by wireless communication via the communication unit 30. The industrial machine 200 receives this operation command by wireless communication and sets the X drive unit 114 in a state where it can be manually operated.

  Thereafter, when the operator operates the button 21, the control unit 70 switches the operation mode to the second mode according to the operation of the button 21. Further, when the operator rotates the dial 22 in the state where the operation mode is the second mode, the control unit 70 determines the movement amount and movement direction of the X drive unit 114 according to the rotation amount and rotation direction of the dial 22. Issue an operation command to adjust. When the X moving body 114a is moved in the + X direction, the operator rotates the dial 22 clockwise. When the X moving body 114a is moved in the -X direction, the operator turns the dial 22 counterclockwise. The setting is made in advance such that the rotation is performed. When the industrial machine 200 receives a command from the control unit 70, the industrial machine 200 controls the X drive unit 114 so that the operation of the command content is performed. The same operation is performed when the Z driving unit 115 and the Y driving unit 116 are controlled, and the loader chuck 112 is moved to the first position P1. Thus, the operation member JC and the mobile communication device MB operate the industrial machine 200 in cooperation.

  Next, with the loader chuck 112 disposed at the first position P1, the operator of the operation terminal 100 or the operator of the industrial machine 200 operates the operation panel 140 to store the loader chuck 112 in a storage unit provided in the control device 130 or the like. X coordinate, Z coordinate, and Y coordinate are registered. As a result, the coordinates of the first position P1 are registered in the industrial machine 200. Thereafter, by performing manual operation with the operation terminal 100 in the same manner as described above, for example, the loader chuck 112 transfers the workpiece W to the spindle 121, the third position P3 that transfers the workpiece W to the spindle 122, and the workpiece W is unloaded. The position of the loader chuck 112 for each operation is registered in the industrial machine 200, such as the position when the workpiece W is reversed and moved by a reversing device (not shown). The registered information is stored as a data table TB in a storage unit (not shown) provided in the industrial machine 200, for example, as shown in FIG.

  As described above, according to the industrial machine system SYS according to the present embodiment, the operation of the industrial machine 200 can be performed using the mobile communication device MB, and sufficiently compatible operability is realized without giving a sense of incongruity. Since the possible operation member JC is used, it is possible to provide an industrial machine system SYS that can utilize the high functions of the mobile communication device MB for operation.

The technical scope of the present invention is not limited to the above-described embodiment, and appropriate modifications can be made without departing from the spirit of the present invention.
