16 February 1984 Sensors For Cleaning Castings With Robot And Plasma-Arc
Author Affiliations +
A retractable fiber optic sensor has been installed to control a robot for the task of cleaning metal castings with a plasma-arc torch. A number of other sensor types were considered, and rejected, for this application. A single-pass search-and-cut method was successfully demonstrated, using a specially designed control interface.
