Claim of US Patent No. 10,462,946

1. A component mounting machine comprising:a feeder device that has a tape feeding mechanism which feeds out a carrier tape including a bottom tape that stores components in respective multiple component storage sections and a cover tape that is adhered to the bottom tape and covers the components in the storage sections, and a tape peeling mechanism which has a tape peeling blade configured to advance between the bottom tape and the cover tape as the carrier tape is fed out in order to carry out peeling of the cover tape from the bottom tape to release a component from a component storage section, and supplies the component from the component storage section at a component supply position;
a component transfer device that has a mounting head which holds a suction nozzle which sucks the component at the component supply position, and mounts the component on a board, and a head driving mechanism which drives the mounting head;
a peeling start determination section that determines if peeling of the cover tape from the bottom tape starts based on whether or not the tape peeling blade advances between the bottom tape and the cover tape after a leading end of the carrier tape is fed out up to the tape peeling blade and before the leading end of the carrier tape is fed out up to the component supply position and the suction nozzle starts a suction operation at the component supply position; and
a recovery function section that carries out a recovery operation in which the recovery function section returns the leading end of the carrier tape temporarily to a front side of the tape peeling blade and feeds out the carrier tape again in a case where it is determined that peeling of the cover tape from the bottom tape is not started by the peeling start determination section.
