AV&R - Part Finishing and Surface Inspection with NI LabView
To automate the deburring and inspection process of
airfoils, AV&R designed a
that uses a six-axis industrial robot to manipulate an airfoil to
accomplish two critical operations. First, the airfoil is finished
using specifically chosen tooling to deburr the dovetail of the part
and create a radius on each edge. Second, a machine vision system
inspects the surface of the airfoil for minute defects and then records
the data based upon the serial number of the part, which is also read
Run time - 0:56 minutes.
