Abstract

Work piece alignment is a key issue for hybrid laser aided part repair, a process utilizing both machining and laser deposition. Proper alignment can greatly improve the accuracy of the repair process. This paper introduces a method for aligning a physical work piece and a CAD model using a Renishaw touch probe and software tools. Also discussed is a model for computing 5-axis CNC positions based on a desired work piece orientation.
