Title: Component conveying device

Abstract: A component conveying device can reliably separate a head component and a second component and can easily take out the head component. A guide groove for aligning and guiding a component P, a conveying member M which is arranged on a bottom surface of the guide groove and is movable forward and backward in the direction of the groove, and a driving means to provide backward and forward movement of the conveying member M are provided. The component P is conveyed forward by moving the conveying member forward in a low speed and moving the conveying member backward in a high speed. A first stopper S1 holds a second component P2 from the head component P1 conveyed on the conveying member M. After the first stopper S1 holds the second component P2, the conveying member M moves forward further, causing a head component P1 to move forward integrally with the conveying member M due to the frictional force, generated by the combined force of the attraction force of a magnetic force generating portion Mg and gravity, so that the head component P1 is separated from the second component P2.
