Description

1269772 IX. Description of the Invention: [Technical Field of the Invention] The present invention provides a transfer machine, and more particularly to a transfer machine that carries a glass substrate. [Prior Art] Since the liquid crystal display panel has characteristics such as thinness, low power consumption, and no radiation-contamination, it is widely used in portable information products such as notebook computers and personal digital assistants, and has even been gradually replaced. The trend of traditional desktop private cRT monitors. In the liquid crystal display panel, a glass substrate is a key component of the liquid crystal display panel, and in addition to the cost of the liquid crystal display panel, the yield of the liquid crystal display panel is more important. In recent years, glass substrates have also increased with the increase in the size and capacity requirements of liquid crystal display panels. In the current fifth-generation liquid crystal display panel, the glass substrate has reached a size of 13 cm by 15 cm to 10 m, while the sixth generation has reached a size of 1500 cm by 1850 cm. After the large size of the glass substrate, many more critical processes have been added. In the complicated process, the shelf for placing the glass substrate, or the carrier, plays a basic role in the transportation of the glass substrate between each process. . In the current manufacturing process of liquid crystal display panels, two different types of carriers, such as a standard cassette or a wire cassette, are used to store the glass substrate. Please refer to Fig. 1, which is a schematic diagram of a conventional standard cassette. As shown in Fig. 1, the standard cassette has a box 12 and a plurality of carriers 14. Each of the carrier plates 14 is further provided with a plurality of vertical thimbles 16 for supporting a glass substrate 18. Therefore, when accessing the glass substrate 18, the mechanical arm yoke 20 can be directly inserted into the gap between the thimbles 16 and the glass substrate 18 can be quickly taken out. In general, the standard cassette has the advantage that any glass substrate 18 can be accessed. However, when accessing the glass substrate ι8, the distance between the glass substrate 18 and the corresponding carrier 14 needs to be greater than that of the mechanical arm. The width is such that the robotic arm fork 20 can be inserted to access a particular glass substrate 18' thereby limiting the amount and amount of card 1 accessible glass substrate μ'. *
I : Please refer to Figure 2, and Figure 2 is a schematic diagram of a conventional cable-type cassette. As shown in Fig. 2, the cable-type cassette includes a box 22 and a plurality of cables 24. Among them, the steel cable type card is mainly used to sequentially access the glass substrates 26 by means of a plurality of belt conveyor belts 28 deep into the cable type cassette. Compared with the Yi and quasi-type cassettes, the advantage of the cable-type cassette is that the gap between the corresponding cables 24 carrying the glass substrates 26 can tolerate a small distance, thereby effectively reducing the volume of the box 22 and raising the sound. The cassette 22 can access the number of glass substrates 26. However, since the design of the cable-type cassette is to sequentially access the glass substrates 26 by means of a plurality of belt conveyor belts and deeper cable-type cassettes, only the glass substrate 26 can be sequentially accessed from the bottom to the top. It is not possible to access the specific glass substrate 18 by using the mechanical arm yoke 20 to quickly penetrate into the gap 6 1269772 of the thimble 16 as in the standard 匣 of the first figure. Therefore, how to effectively improve the conventional access to the glass substrate requires a large access space or can only be accessed sequentially. This is an important issue today.
