Abstract:An optical monitoring system has been developed by the authors aiming at real-time monitoring of laser cutting of thick plates of mild steel. This optical system uses photodiodes and a NIR camera as sensors. The concepts and results of the photodiode-based monitoring system have already been reported [1,2]. This paper is dedicated to the development of the optical set-up for camera-based monitoring of the laser cutting process. Firstly, some general aspects concerning the sensing principles and the conceptual …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
