Tool Wear Monitoring System in CNC End Milling using Hybrid Approach to Cutting Force Regulation

Lee, Kang-Jae,Yang, Min-Yang,


A Tool wear monitoring system is indispensable for better machining productivity with guarantee of machining safety by informing the tool changing time in automated and unmanned CNC machining. Different from monitoring using other signals, the monitoring of spindle current has been used without requiring additional sensors on machine tools. For the reliable tool wear monitoring, current signal only of tool wear should be extracted from other parameters to avoid exhaustive analyses on signals in which all parameters are fused. In this paper, influences of force components of parameters on measured spindle current are investigated and a hybrid approach to cutting force regulation is employed for tool wear signal extraction in the spindle current. Finally, wear levels are verified with experimental results by means of real-time feedrate aspects changed to regulate the force component of tool wear.
