An article transport vehicle includes a travel member capable of traveling along a travel path, a support member located below the travel member for supporting an article, and a connecting member which connects the travel member and the support member to each other. The connecting member includes a travel member side connecting portion connected to the travel member, a support member side connecting portion connected to the support member, and an elastic member which is elastically deformable. The travel member side connecting portion and the support member side connecting portion are connected to each other for relative movement along the vertical direction. An elastic member is interposed between the travel member side connecting portion and the support member side connecting portion.

An article transport facility comprises storage sections, a transport device, a controller, and a learning module. The transport device has a transfer device having a support portion, and a light-emitter-receiver. The controller is caused to store information that indicates a second target position at which the transfer device is located when transferring an article, and information that indicates a first target position to which the support portion is moved. Each of a plurality of storage sections is provided with a reflector. A learning control performed by the controller is a control in which a first target position and a second target position are learned based on information of an image of the reflector captured by the imaging device of the learning module and pre-learning position information. Each reflector has a first area which forms the periphery of the reflector, and a second area in the first area. The relationship between the reflectance and the wave length of the reflected light is different between the first area and the second area.

When an external force applied condition that an external force that causes a decrease in a rotational speed of an electric motor is applied to the contact member moved by the electric motor is satisfied while the actuation controller is performing a first control for continuously performing a process of providing the electric motor with a command value that depends on an error between an actual rotational speed of the electric motor and a first target rotational speed so as to cause the actual rotational speed to approach the first target rotational speed, then the actuation controller, subsequent to the first control, performs a second control for providing the electric motor with a command value that allows the actual rotational speed of the motor to be equal to, and to fall below, the first target rotational speed at a time of the external force applied condition becoming satisfied.

A conveying device has interlockingly coupled, rectilinear screw shafts which are driven by a motor. The screw shafts are juxtaposed to an inclined rectilinear portion of a gradient portion in a traveling route of a conveying traveling body and to at least fixed regions adjacent to the gradient portion of respective upper and lower horizontal route portions connected to respective ends of the gradient portion. The conveying traveling body has a pair of front and rear driven rollers engaging with the screw shafts, and an interval between the pair of front and rear driven rollers is set to a length not shorter than a rectilinear distance between end portions of the screw shafts positioned at respective sides of each of arcuate portions at respective upper and lower ends of the gradient portion to make the conveying traveling body travel continuously between the respective upper and lower horizontal route portions.

An article transport facility includes a support member capable of supporting a second support component from below while allowing a vertical movement of a first support component with respect to the second support component, in a projected state in which the second support component is located in a projected position. The support member is supported directly or indirectly by a ceiling.

A transport apparatus transports a container that includes a flow hole forming portion in which a flow hole through which gas can flow between the outside and the inside of the container is formed. A connecting portion that has a flow path through which gas can flow and a filling gas supply source that allows a filling gas to flow through the flow path are provided in the transport apparatus. The connecting portion is configured to be switchable between a non-connected state in which the connecting portion is retracted to the outside of a moving region of the container that moves along a transport path and a connected state in which the connecting portion enters the inside of the moving region and is connected to the flow hole forming portion of the container.

A storage structure is provided in which an outside surface panel can be attached and removed regardless of where the storage structure is installed. The storage structure has a plurality of columns, an outside surface panel configured to be located between two mutually adjacent columns to form a part of an outer wall, and an outward-side pressing member and an inward-side pressing member each of which can be removably attached to a column. The outside surface panel has a width which is less than a distance between the two mutually adjacent columns. The outward-side pressing member and the inward-side pressing member cooperate with each other to assist in holding the outside surface panel from both sides.

An article transport facility includes an article transport device capable of moving along a moving direction in movement sections. The movement sections include a transporting movement section and an out-of-the-way movement section. A work platform includes one or more out-of-trajectory portions located to at least one side along a lateral direction with respect to a mast trajectory, and one or more in-trajectory portions which are located in an area of the mast trajectory that excludes an area in which the mast is located when the article transport device is in the out-of-the-way stop position. Each of the one or more in-trajectory portions is configured to be capable of being moved to a support position located in the mast trajectory, and to an out-of-the-way position in which the in-trajectory portion is out of the mast trajectory along the lateral direction.

A storage facility for semiconductor containers is provided. The storage structure has partitioning walls including a side wall portion extending along a vertical direction, and holding space partitioned off from exterior space by the partitioning walls. Inactive gas enriched air, which contains higher concentration of inactive gas than concentration of inactive gas contained in air in the exterior space, is supplied to the holding space. And a first opening for allowing containers being carried into and out of the storage structure to be moved through the side wall portion is formed in the side wall portion. A first inlet opening is located at a position which is in the exterior space and is adjacent an edge of the first opening. And a first drawing-in device is provided in the storage structure to discharge air drawn in through the first inlet opening into discharge space which is outside the holding space and is divided off from the exterior space.
