Abstract

Welding processes are very important in different industries and requires precision and attention in the steps that will be performed. This article proposes the use of an autonomous weld bead geometric analysis system in order to verify the presence of geometric failures that may compromise the weld integrity. Using an vision system attached to a linear welding robot, images of pre-welded and post-welded metal plates are captured and compared and metrics are applied for evaluation. The proposed method uses Hidden Markov Model (HMM) to identify the weld bead edges and calculate several evaluation metrics to detect geometric failures such as misalignment, lack or excess of fusion, among others.
