Abstract

This paper describes a 3-dimensional measuring method for cylindrical huge ingot pressed with forging machine. Target ingot we consider here is rotated around a fixed axis during measurement. Using an image processing technique every profile of cross-section is obtained, and 3D image is reconstructed. One method to calibrate the system setting is also presented. Experimental results reveal that the method are applicable and the algorithm is feasible.
