Abstract

This chapter speaks about the application of digital image processing in conventional machining. Advantages and disadvantages of digital image processing techniques over the other sensors used in machining for product quality improvement is also discussed here. A short introduction to image processing techniques used in machining is presented here. A detailed review of image processing applications in machining for over the past decade is discussed in this chapter. Also, an example of an image texture analysis method utilized for cutting tool condition detection through machined surface images is presented. An overall conclusion leading to future work required in this field has been mentioned.
