Indirect tool wear measurement with machine learning

How to monitor cutting tools using sensor data and time-series processing methods?

Challenge and Motivation

  • Indirect, online cutting tool wear monitoring is beneficial for productivity and cost savings.
  • Current tool wear monitoring systems are unable to give online tool wear status information.


  • Create a dataset for indirect tool wear measurement.
  • Research methods to model tool wear indirectly.
  • Execute different methods on the dataset.
  • Analyze benefits and drawbacks of the methods.
