Paper Abstract

Recently, unmanned operation in machining is requested. But the tool chipping is an important problem which prevents this factory automation. Many methods such as acoustic emission, motor current monitoring, motor torque fluctuation monitoring have been developed for tool monitoring. But, these methods have their own problems applying to actual machine. Authors have developed the inprocess monitoring system which detects the wear or chipping of a tool of lathe machining. This system consists of laser diode, CCD camera and image processing systems. This system shows the shape of tool tip and the roughness of cutting surface.
