Paper Abstract

New manufacturing technologies such as laser cutting, laser caving and laser marking have highly evolved in recent years. If it comes to the point where digitized data are needed for rapid prototyping, small batches, etc., either time consuming scanning methods or programming `by hand' are needed. New developments relate image processing methods to these tasks. Applied to laser cutting and laser caving applications the features and the usefulness of vision technologies are described. Especially the complex manufacturing process `laser caving' highlights the applicability of image processing technologies.
