The different conditions of use of a component result in a variety of damage levels. Therefore, excluding differences in shape and size, used parts show a high degree of uncertainty regarding failure characteristics, quality conditions, and remaining life, which seriously affects the efficiency of a remanufacturing scheme design. Aiming to address this problem, a remanufacturing scheme design method based on the reconstruction of incomplete information of used parts is proposed. First, the remaining life of the reconstructed model is predicted by finite element analysis, and the demand for the next life cycle is determined. Second, the scanned 3D damage point cloud data are registered with the original point cloud data using the integral iterative method to construct a missing point cloud model to achieve the restoration of geometric information. Then, according to reverse engineering and laser cladding remanufacturing, the tool remanufacturing process path can be generated by the tool contact point path section line method. Finally, the proposed method is adopted for turbine blades to evaluate the effectiveness and feasibility of the proposed scheme. This study proposes a remanufacturing scheme design method based on the incomplete reconstruction of used part information to solve the uncertain and highly personalized problems in remanufacturing.
