Automatic Edge Machining System for Collar Plate

DAE-EUN KO

Abstract


As the performance standards for protective coatings of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) became mandatory, shipyards must perform 2R or 3P grinding on the edges of collar plates. However, 2R or 3P grinding by manual work can cause many problems in terms of work environment and productivity. In this study, an automatic edge machining system was designed for collar plates used in hull structure for shear reinforcement of slot holes. Shape recognition and processing path generation algorithm were introduced to establish edge machining process. It is expected that an automation system capable of meeting IMO regulation will be constructed and productivity will be improved at the same time.
