In this embodiment, the 5th position X5 is set so that the pressing member 31 arrange | positioned at 5th position X5 may not interfere with the operation | movement of the bonding apparatus 9 in the bonding process S6. Here, the 5th position X5 is set so that the press member 31 arrange | positioned at 5th position X5 may not contact any of a pair of bonding roller 26 and liquid crystal panel P. As shown in FIG.

In the defect recovery process S9, the pressing member 31 is positioned at the sixth position X6 to sandwich the defective bonding sheet F12 and the separator F3 between the second surface 24 of the knife edge 20. Is placed. In this example, the second moving part 30 of the guide part 22 is controlled by the control device 10, and the pressing member 31 is moved between the fifth position X5 and the sixth position X6. Can be.

The pressing member 31 arrange | positioned in 6th position X6 presses the defective article bonding sheet | seat F12 and the separator F3, and contact | adheres by pressing the defective article piece F13 toward the 2nd surface 24. As shown in FIG. Thereby, even if a part of defective article bonding sheet | seat F12 peels from separator F3 when it passes through the front-end | tip part 19, for example, the defective article bonding sheet | seat F12 and separator F3 will mutually adhere. Therefore, it is suppressed that the defective article bonding sheet F12 is separated from the separator F3 before it is wound by the winding machine 5. Moreover, the defective article bonding sheet | seat F12 can be collect | recovered effectively.

Next, a second modification of the recovery device will be described. It is a figure which shows the 2nd modified example of the collection | recovery apparatus of this embodiment.

2 C of collection | recovery apparatuses shown in FIG. 11 are equipped with the jig 29, the pressing member 31, and the 2nd moving part 30 (2nd moving mechanism). The jig 29 of this example is rotatably holding the pressing member 31 at the edge part of the recessed part 28 of the downstream side of a conveyance direction. That is, the relative position with respect to the jig 29 of the pressing member 31 is being fixed. Hereinafter, the jig 29 and the pressing member 31 in which the positions are fixed to each other are called the peeling suppression unit 32.

In the bonding process S6, the peeling suppression unit 32 is arrange | positioned at the 7th position X7 which does not contact the quality goods bonding sheet | seat F9 via the front-end | tip part 19 of the knife edge 20. As shown in FIG. Moreover, in the fault collection process S9, the jig 29 is arrange | positioned at the 1st position X1 which contacts the defective sheet piece via the knife edge 20, and the press member 31 is the knife edge 20 The peeling suppression unit 32 is arrange | positioned at 8th position X8 so that the defective article bonding sheet | seat F12 and separator F3 may be interposed between the 2nd surface 24 of the (). The 2nd moving part 30 is controlled by the control apparatus 10, and each of the 7th position X7 and the 8th position X8 is made so that each of the jig 29 and the pressing member 31 may not interfere with the bonding roller. The peeling suppression unit 32 can be moved between.

2 C of collection | recovery apparatuses of a 2nd modification are suppressed from being separated from separator F3 before the defective bonding sheet | seat F12 is wound up by the winding machine 5, and can collect | recover defective article bonding sheet F12 effectively. Moreover, since the jig 29 and the pressing member 31 are integrated and comprise the peeling suppression unit 32, and the 2nd moving part 30 moves the peeling suppression unit 32, it presses with the jig 29. The structure and control method of the 2nd moving part 30 can be made simpler than the structure which moves the member 31 individually.

In addition, the jig 29 and the pressing member 31 may form a peeling suppression unit by fixing the relative position of each other by the other fixing member of the jig 29 and the pressing member 31 either. In addition, the position of the pressing member 31 with respect to the jig 29 may be variable. Moreover, the mechanism which moves the pressing member 31 and arrange | positions in a predetermined position may be provided separately from the mechanism which moves the jig 29 and arrange | positions in a predetermined position.

The technical scope of this invention is not limited to the said embodiment. Various modifications are possible without departing from the spirit of the invention.

Although the said bonding system 1 detects the fault F11 of the optical member F1 by the detection apparatus 7, in addition to using the optical sheet F examined before conveyance, the control apparatus 10 ) May be used to determine whether or not the quality sheet is a piece. The said inspection result may be formed in the optical sheet F in the form of matching etc., for example, may be input into the control apparatus as data which shows the fault position from the edge of the roll R in the longitudinal direction. . Thus, when using the optical sheet F examined previously, the detection apparatus 7 may be abbreviate | omitted.

Moreover, although the said bonding system 1 partitions the optical sheet F into several sheet pieces by forming a piercing line with the cutting device 8, the optical sheet F previously partitioned by the several sheet piece. May be used. In this case, the cutting device 8 may be omitted.

Moreover, although the said bonding system 1 continues to send out the optical sheet F from the roll R by which the optical sheet F was wound, the optical sheet supply part 4 of the conveying apparatus 3 is an optical sheet F May be a manufacturing apparatus. The manufacturing apparatus of this optical sheet F may be a part of bonding system 1, or may be the external apparatus of bonding system 1.

In the above embodiment, the example in which the defective article bonding sheet F12 via the tip portion 19 hardly separates from the separator F3 has been described. If it adheres to the extent that it does not separate from separator F3, it can collect with separator F3. Moreover, you may improve adhesiveness of the defective article bonding sheet | seat F12 and the separator F3 after passing through the front-end | tip part 19 like the said modification.

The second moving part 30 and the first moving part 27 may be included in one moving mechanism including a link mechanism that is movable by interlocking the bonding roller 26 and the jig 29. It may be controlled by the control device 10.
