Inprocess Detection of Cutting Tool Breakage with Acoustic Emission Signals

  • I. Inasaki


An inprocess sensor for detecting cutting tool breakage is developed. The principle of the sensor system is based on monitoring the acoustic emission (AE) signal emitted when a tool breakes. The signal of tool breakage is successfully distinguished from other noise by the signal processing proposed in this study. The capability of the sensor system for practical application is confirmed through the field tests.
