One of the preconditions for achieving process reliability in the increasingly automated manufacturing processes in the automotive industry is controlled chip breakage. The joint research project “Strategies for the Guarantee of Controlled Chip Breakage”, which was carried out at RWTH Aachen and was funded by the Research Association for Machine Tools and Manufacturing Technology, was aimed at developing an expert system that can predict controlled chip breakage during machining processes without time-consuming preliminary testing. The key component of this newly developed software is a database that is based on known machining cases.
