BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to an article conveying assembly apparatus and an article conveying assembling method, and for example, a workpiece that is directly conveyed by a roller conveyor that is a conveying means in a production line that handles a workpiece having an inclined component mounting surface such as a V-type automobile engine. Alternatively, the present invention relates to a particularly suitable technique when a work carried on a pallet is stopped on the lower side of the working device and then a predetermined work is performed on a component mounting surface of the work.
[0002]
[Prior art]
Conventionally, the following two methods have been adopted when attaching parts from various directions to a workpiece.
[0003]
The first is that the workpiece is positioned on the transfer device, as represented by a component assembly device in which the working means moves forward and backward from the diagonal direction of the workpiece, without changing the position or posture of the workpiece, This is a method of performing predetermined operations such as component mounting, caulking, press-fitting, and painting, using individual assembling devices in which the working means are moved back and forth from up and down, front and rear, left and right, and oblique directions.
[0004]
According to this method, a general-purpose production line can be constructed by adding assembling work devices according to the type of work. Further, for example, when it is not possible to add an individual assembling apparatus due to space limitations, this can be dealt with by providing individual mechanisms that move the working means back and forth, back and forth, left and right, and diagonally.
