Title: PRODUCTION APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR CONTROLLING PRODUCTION APPARATUS
Abstract:
A production apparatus comprises: a movable work device; a guiding component for guiding the movement of the work device; a driving device for moving the work device along the guiding component within a previously established movement area; and a detector for detecting the site of a malfunction occurring in the guiding component and/or the site of a malfunction occurring in a power transmission mechanism that transmits power from the driving device to the work device. The driving device positions the site of the malfunction detected by the detector outside of the movement area and then moves the work device.
