Detecting a failure of a press mold
It cannot be checked whether holes are rightly pressed in a plate. It is needed to immediately recognize a failure of a mold, if any.
- Neither a photoelectric sensor nor a laser sensor cannot detect such a failure. Meanwhile, having an excessive performance, an image processing unit costs too much.

By using the image sensor Asensor2, an area of a pressed hole is measured to enable detection of a failure of the mold.
Being able to measure an area of a pressed hole and the number of pressed holes, Asensor2 can detect a failure of the mold.
Since the setup work and operation are simple, even a factory operator can make a setup. Furthermore, inspection images are always displayed on a monitor screen, the factory operator can visually check them at any time without a PC.

Since Asensor2 can adjust its operation timing by using a trigger, operation can be carried out without uncertainty even though a workpiece stops just for a short time.
Moreover, by using a shutter function, inspection can be carried out even while a workpiece is moving.
