Abstract

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.
