Quantitative Evaluation of the Uniformity of Abrasive Distribution Based on Image Processing
In precision machining, the uniformity degree of abrasive distribution affects significantly the surface quality. To quantitatively evaluate the uniformity of abrasive distribution, in this paper digital image processing technology was employed to segment the working face images of impregnated diamond tools; mean crowding index was used to classify the pattern of abrasive distribution; fractal dimension determined by gyration radius method was applied to characterize the bulk uniformity of abrasive distribution on face plane; the coefficient of variation of Voronoi cell areas was adopted to describe the local distribution feature of abrasive grits. The results show that mean crowding index, fractal dimension and CV of Voronoi cell areas can characterize the uniformity of abrasive distribution from different points of view, and can be used to quantitatively evaluate the uniformity of abrasive distribution.
