Title

System Integration and Real-Time Control Architecture of a Laser Aided Manufacturing Process

Abstract

This paper discusses a hybrid deposition–removal manufacturing system being developed at the University of Missouri-–Rolla. The system consists of a laser system, five–axis CNC machining center, and powder feeder system. A description of the control software, real–time control architecture, and integration of various subsystems to build the hybrid system is given. The interaction of the real–time controller with various sensors and subsystems to monitor and regulate the process is presented. The communication between integrated process planning for the system and real–time control is also discussed in this paper.
