초록

Because the condition of machining tools has a significant influence on the machine downtime and the quality of machining products, maintaining it is the most important aspect in machining. This paper presents the detection process of the tool wear area and its maximal length based on image processing techniques. After collecting tool images from microscopes on the machine, we extracted region of interest (RoI) from them. Subsequently, we applied median filter, Sobel and Otsu method to RoI images to detect the flank wear area of them. To verify our proposed method, we compared it with the human measurement and image processing techniques proposed by prior literatures. Our experimental results were at least 6.7% more accurate because we used overlaid unworn tool images taken previously . With these techniques, we were able to detect tool wear area and its maximal length even for the worn tool wear area of curved surfaces.
