To provide a conveying apparatus, a conveying robot and a press line by which the attitude of an object to be conveyed is freely changeable and the conveying speed of the object to be conveyed is elevated.
In the case an obstacle such as a cam die 3f is installed on a press 3, the object W to be conveyed can not be conveyed because the object W to be conveyed is interfered with the cam die 3f when the object W to be conveyed is conveyed in the same attitude. Thus, first, by making an arm part 9 separately slid with a sliding/driving motor and advancing the arm part 9 in the B1 direction, the object W to be conveyed is held with a clamping part 8 in the press 3. After that, a guiding part 11 is rotated in the A direction in one with the arm parts 9 by rotating a driving shaft 5m with a T-shaft driving motor of the conveying robot 5 and also the object W to be conveyed is rotated by separately rotating a clamping part 8 with a rotational driving motor. As the result, because the attitude of the object W to be conveyed is changed, the interference of the object W to be conveyed with the cam die 3f is avoided.
