ICTM Collaborative R&D 2022

Assessment of the Automated Tool Wear Measurement System in Application

© Fraunhofer IPT

What are the technical and economical potentials of an automated tool wear measurement system?

Challenge and Motivation

  • Application and evaluation of the system that was set up in the ICTM Collaborative R&D 2021 project 2.5 in an industrial manufacturing process as the benefit of the system in a production environment is mostly unknown.


  • Validation of cutting tool wear measurements.
  • Economical and technical evaluation of the system’s benefits.
  • Exploration of potential value in the application and possible improvements of the system.
