Paper Abstract

Metallurgy industry which mainly transforms the steel or its derivative products into products with either better surface properties (thanks to the surface transformations...), or into different shape products (lamination...), involves some processing tools which can often generate flaws (cracks, grooves...) within the process. Prior to this study which concerns the control of laminated tubes, recipient for the uranium inside the nuclear reactor, the tubes were visually inspected after the lamination process. According to the quality estimation of the tube, subjectively done by an operator (between 1 and 4), the process was possibly stopped (grade 4). In order to obtain an objective control of the tube, a machine vision set-up was designed. The primary goal of this prototype is to provide a view of the whole surface of the tube to the operator.
