Date of Presentation
This paper presents a method of measuring the volumetric tool wear by use of the image processing technique. A single CCD camera based stereo vision system is built to acquire the image pair. The crater wear’s boundary of the cutting tool is then detected, and then the 3D volumetric shape of the worn region on the rake face is reconstructed through the developed image matching algorithms, and the crater’s volume and depth is estimated. A Matlab software system is developed to perform image acquisition, calibration, image rectification, image adjustment, stereo matching, crater’s depth estimation, and the representation of the volumetric tool wear. The feasibility of the proposed method is verified through experiments
