Abstract
The paper presents a new method for on-line acquisition of weld-piece surface topography during pulsed laser welding. The method is based on illumination of the weld-piece surface with multi-line laser projector and imaging of the illuminated surface with a digital camera. The acquired image is processed by a personal computer to get the three-dimensional (3D) weld-piece surface topography. The set-up was applied to minimize weld-piece distortion during laser butt-welding of low-carbon thin steel sheets. Methodology based on Taguchi methods was developed enabling optimization of processing parameters. Root-mean-square (RMS) of surface distortion was used as the scalar parameter quantifying the amount of distortion. The results show that laser pulse duration and welding speed have a major influence on RMS distortion.
