Paper Abstract

With the progressive automation of the machining process it is becoming increasingly necessary to have a reliable tool wear and failure monitor. This paper provides the results of a comprehensive investigation into the efficacy of using the dynamic tangential component of the cutting force to predict the imniinence of tool failure. Experiments were carried out using different workpiece and tool materials tool geometries and machining conditions. It was found that it is possible to set threshold values to give indications of when the tool is deemed to have failed.
