Title: BOUND MEMBER DETECTION DEVICE
Abstract:
A bound member detection device (1) comprises a contact structure (27-i), a vibration sensor (41-i), and a control unit (52). The contact structure (27-i) moves with respect to a document while in contact with the document. The vibration sensor (41-i) detects a vibration generated in the contact structure (27-i). The control unit (52) determines the presence of a staple that is binding the document on the basis of the vibration detected by the vibration sensor (41-i). The bound member detection device (1) determines the presence of a staple on the basis of vibrations generated in the contact structure (27-i) by the contact structure (27-i) colliding with the staple, thereby preventing false detection and appropriately detecting the presence of a staple that is binding a document.
