Real-time cutting tool state recognition approach based on machining features in NC machining process of complex structural parts
Cutting tool state recognition plays an important role in ensuring the quality and efficiency of NC machining of complex structural parts, and it is quite especial and challengeable for complex structural parts with single-piece or small-batch production. In order to address this issue, this paper presents a real-time recognition approach of cutting tool state based on machining features. The sensitive parameters of monitored cutting force signals for different machining features are automatically extracted, and are associated with machining features in real time. A K-Means clustering algorithm is used to automatically classify the cutting tool states based on machining features, where the sensitive parameters of the monitoring signals together with the geometric and process information of machining features are used to construct the input vector of the K-Means clustering model. The experiment results show that the accuracy of the approach is above 95% and the approach can solve the real-time recognition of cutting tool states for complex structural parts with single-piece and small-batch production.
