A Machine Vision Approach to Tool Wear Monitoring Based on the Image of Workpiece Surface Texture
Machine vision technique is an advanced method for tool wear monitoring. In this article, a holding system has been designed and fabricated to realize the combination of machine tools and machine vision system. On-machine experiments were carried out to test the effect of this method. Experimental results indicate that tool condition monitoring can be successfully accomplished by analyzing texture feature information extracted from the machined surface.
