Development of Monitoring and Control System for Laser Remanufacturing
In order to monitor the process of laser remanufacturing and control the quality of remanufacturing, a monitoring and control system for laser remanufacturing was constructed with its hardware and software. The schedule of the system including signal condition, software interface, sampling and control method, was introduced. Infra-red thermometer with dynamic aiming device was designed to track the molten pool location. Photoelectric sensor was developed to measure the flow of powder. The contrast test results show that the fuzzy PID control system for powder feeding could achieve stable flow.
