A Method for Measuring Weld Bead in Grinding and Polishing Process



Getting the real-time information of spatial data, height and length of weld bead is the key point during the process of grinding and polishing large-scale part. To tackle this problem, a robot visual system is completed by building the double CCD and the laser on the mobile robot. Combining the image search algorithm with the image preprocessing algorithm in time domain, the laser single pixel feature line is obtained. The positions of each point in feature line are optimized by curve fitting so that the right spatial data and dimension are obtained. The result shows the proposed method can provides the precise information of weld bead, and the accuracy of measurement is within 0.15mm, as steady as repeatability.
