WUHAN / Wuhan, China Project Center
Huazhong Numerical Control Co, Ltd
This project involved design and partial implementation of an active tool wear monitoring and prevention platform. In order to assess the sponsor companyÂ’s needs, a requirements analysis was performed. After researching and analyzing the current state of the art a program was written in C and C++ to actively monitor axial cutting forces and control spindle speed and feedrate of a CNC to maximize tool life through various control methods. In order to complete the system, a comprehensive, user-friendly GUI was created.
