Abstract: This paper presents a development of dross height measurement system to achieve even distribution of dross in a box in a robotic dross removal system. The current system uses a point light source to measure and needs an installment of sensor system on the end of the robots resulting an increase in the measurement time. To overcome this limitation, this work uses a 3D sensor with a surface light source to replace the current laser measurement module. Using the 3D sensor, the system measures dross height in the box and using 3D information and color images, it measures outer edges of the box. With this, a measurement algorithm for outer edges, divisions and average height of a dross box was developed.
