AbstractAn electronic parts engaging apparatus is equipped with a parts feed portion having a plurality of parts feed devices disposed to feed, for each type of part, parts having marks indicating their separate type. A suction nozzle is composed of a light transmitting material. A recognition device recognizes the parts through the suction nozzle. A memory stores the types of the parts of the respective parts feed devices in the parts feed portion. A control stores in the memory the types of the parts found through the recognition of the marks of the parts of the respective parts feed devices with the recognition device. A periodical washing operation has an effect in that the control operation is simplified.
