The Application of Force and Acoustic Emission Sensors for Detecting Tool Damage in Turning Processes
Condition monitoring systems of manufacturing processes have been recognised in recent years as one of the key technologies that provide the competitive advantage in many manufacturing environments. It is capable of providing an essential means to reduce cost, increase productivity, improve quality and prevent damage to the machine or work-piece. Turning operations are considered one of the most common manufacturing processes in industry. Despite recent development and intensive engineering research, the development of tool wear monitoring systems in turning is still on-going challenge. In this paper, force and acoustic emission signals are used for monitoring tool wear in a feature fusion model. The results prove that the developed system can be used to enhance the design of condition monitoring systems for turning operations to predict tool wear or damage.
