  • Patent number: 10430684
    Abstract: A signal processing method includes addition of noise obtained by multiplying generated random number by K to the input pixel signal I(x), a binarization process of comparing the result of the addition with two thresholds, and a process of calculating a probability. The binarization process includes a first nonlinear process and a second nonlinear process. The first nonlinear process outputs “P” in a case where I(x) after the addition of the noise is greater than the threshold T1 and less than the second threshold T2. The second nonlinear determines “1” or “0” for a processing target pixel, in which the result of the first nonlinear process is “P,” based on input pixel signals of pixels around the processing target pixel. The process of calculating a probability calculates a probability J(x) that the result of the first nonlinear process is “1,” or the result of the first nonlinear process is “P” and the result of the second nonlinear process is “1”.

  • Patent number: 10071444
    Abstract: A laser cladding apparatus includes a powder supplier to supply metal powder to a portion to be processed, a laser to irradiate the portion to be processed with laser so as to melt the metal powder for cladding, and a controller. The powder supplier includes a gas pressure gauge, and the controller stores, as an initial value, a gas pressure value measured by the gas pressure gauge when the metal powder supplied by the gas pressure reaches the portion to be cladding-processed. In operation after storing the initial value, the controller sets, as a reference time, timing when the gas pressure gauge measures a same pressure as the initial value, and outputs a start signal for laser irradiation to the laser based on the reference time.
