Study on Parameters Measurement System of Ball-End Cutter Based on Optical Vision Detection
In manufacturing field, the geometric parameters measurement of tool is an essential process in manufacturing ball-end cutter. An optical visual inspection system of ball-end cutter parameters was studied through designing CCD camera, optical microscope, image grabbing card, visual light and 3D detection tables. Through the grabbing and processing image information of ball-end cutter, visual inspection method was applied to measure parameters of ball-end cutter. Some algorithms including the gray scale processing, median filtering, edge detection and least square fitting method of measured data were analyzed to develop image processing and tool detection software of ball-end cutter. The reliability and accuracy of this detection system were verified through the practical test.
