This paper describes a methodology for capturing the tacit knowledge of the manual grinding and polishing process. Key Process Variables (KPVs) i.e. contact force, tool path, feed rate, etc. of the manual operator performing the task are captured with a `sensorised' hand-held belt grinder, while the changes to the work-piece geometry is captured using a 3-D(More)
This paper describes a novel methodology for programming grinding tool-paths, tool-path orientations and grinding strategies based on the captured trajectories of a surface finishing tool operated by the Skilled-Operator. In order to extract the grinding parameters and strategy from the trajectory of the skilled operator, the manual tool-path is first(More)
