(EN) According to a work mounting method by the work transfer apparatus of the prior art, a glass plate or a work may fail to abut against a window frame homogeneously at its peripheral edge portion, and the adhesion strength or the sealing property between the glass plate and the window frame may not be retained all over the periphery of the adhered portion. Provided is a work transfer apparatus (1), which grips a rear glass (5) by its gripping member (20) and mounts the rear glass (5) while pushing the gripped rear glass (5) onto the window frame (7a) of a car body (7) by the action of a supporting arm (10). The work transfer apparatus (1) comprises a control device (80), and each of absorption pads (30) of the gripping member (20) includes a force detecting sensor (31) for detecting the force to be applied to the absorption pads (30). The control device (80) controls, when it uses the work transfer apparatus (1) to mount the rear glass (5) on the window frame (7a), the actions of the supporting arm (10) on the basis of the magnitude of the detected value of the force detecting sensor (31) of each absorption pad (30).(JA) 従来のワーク搬送装置によるワーク設置方法では、ワークとなるガラスの周縁部が均一に窓枠に当接しない場合があり、ガラスと窓枠との間の接着強度やシール性を接着部の全周にわたって確保することができなくなる恐れがあった。本発明に係るワーク搬送装置(1)は、把持具(20)によりリアガラス(5)を把持し、把持したリアガラス(5)を支持アーム(10)の動作により車体(7)の窓枠(7a)に対して押圧しつつリアガラス(5)を設置する。ワーク搬送装置(1)は制御装置(80)を備え、把持具(20)の各吸着パッド(30)は、吸着パッド(30)にかかる力を検出可能な力検出センサ(31)を備える。制御装置(80)は、ワーク搬送装置(1)を用いてリアガラス(5)を窓枠(7a)に設置する際に、各吸着パッド(30)の力検出センサ(31)の検出値の大きさに基づいて、支持アーム(10)の動作を制御する。
