In order to inspect the condition of micro milling cutter automatically and accurately in the online process, a dedicated micro milling cutter condition inspection system was established in this paper, which can effectively inspect micro cutter condition from both radial and axial direction. The key methods—the automatic dimension measurement and the fusion method for compositing all-in-focus cutting edge image of micro milling cutters—are studied. The experiments verify that the proposed methods and the developed inspection system can fulfill the needs of industrial applications.
