Innovative rust removal method
Endurance plans to develop a rust removal system.
The basic idea is to make a fully automated system that can remove rust from metal surfaces.
1. Following 3D surface.
As soon as a lot of surfaces are not smooth and have a different height range the need to keep the laser in focus all the time
Therefore you need to get a 3D model of an object.
If you do not have a 3D model of an object then you need to make it using a 3D scanner.
2. Positioning the real object and a 3D model.
Once you are ready to remove rust you need to put the piece on a worktop and make 2-5 dots on the perimeter. That dots will allow you to locate the item properly on a worktop.
3. Generate a rust removal g-code so that the laser will remain on the same height. Remaining on the same hight will allow you to do a rust removal efficiently.
4. Real video.
You may add a real-time video from a camera that will combine a real image with a 3D model.
5. Additional height adjustment system.
A special range finder tool can be added to check the real height of the laser to remain in focus.
