Choice of Wear-Criteria in Fully Automated Turning

  • A. Kinnander


In automated metal-cutting a high degree of machining-reliability is required. The performance of the cutting tool is of essential importance. The traditional wear-criteria, flank wear and crater wear, is not well correlated to the frequency of process interruptions due to tool performance. A system for machining-monitoring should therefore be based on other process parameters. In the paper cutting force is discussed as controlling process parameter in fully automated turning.
