Abstract
Surface treatments with remelting have often irregular quality. This article presents on-line control of laser melting which induces an improved quality of the treatment and more regular results. In order to build up a regulator, different sensor have been experimented. Responses are analyzed versus static and dynamic process commands. The molten depth is estimated on-line from molten pool dimensions measured by the CCD camera and image on-line processing. A state model is developed. The system is controlled by three variables: sample velocity, laser power and intensity distribution. The outputs of the system are the depth and width of the melted zone, and the temperature field. The commands and the outputs are chosen in accordance with the application under consideration. Therefore the process has been regulated.
