The paper presents the subject of 3D image utilization in the task of automated measurement and assessment of wear level of Qubitron II grinding wheels. An example of measuring geometrical parameters and parameters describing the working surface of the grinding wheel included three types of wheels. The tests were repeated for a dozen or so copies within each type in order to evaluate the possibility of using the 3D image of the surface for a quick assessment of its wear. The work presents a brief method of acquiring a 3D image of a grinding wheel surface using a laser triangulation method. The method of 3D image analysis and measurement of selected wheel parameters were discussed in detail. The aim of the imaging was to develop a fast and automated method of grinding wheel surface... evaluation and to develop indicators describing its wear.
