Project Description and Objectives:
On-machine workpiece measurement is becoming a key part of the next industrial revolution in precision manufacturing. On-machine metrology cannot only assist in automated precision workpiece positioning, but also enable the in-situ detection and compensation of machining errors. This project will implement on-machine metrology by integrating a surface measurement sensor on the machine tool. The software will be developed to simultaneously control sensor readings and the motion of the machine tool. The accuracy of on-machine measurement will be evaluated according to ISO 10360 specification standards. The outcome of the project will demonstrate the capabilities of on-machine metrology utilizing the machine tool as part of the metrology system.
Students with research experience are highly desired.
Knowledge on metrology and/or CMNC machine tool is highly desired.
Participant will carry out experimental investigation on on-machine metrology, including analysis of common measurement sensors, the design, installation and operation of an on-machine sensor on the machine tool, establish communication between the sensor and machine tool, and evaluation of the performance of the developed on-machine measurement sensor according to methods specified in ISO 10360 specification standards.
