Inside of the cylinder cover for a large size engine, several specific areas are required to have endurable property for high temperature, high pressure and corrosion attack. For this purpose, the surface should be machined to the shape of a pocket and covered with inconel overlay welding. This paper represents the machining process using an industrial robot system, which can replace an expensive NC machine for the surface machining process. It also describes that how the robot generates its path from the CAD data and compensates its position with a laser distance sensor. The pocket machining system incorporating an industrial robot was successfully developed and can cover various engine types efficiently in this field.
