Intelligent machine tool is required to implement highprecision process monitoring for judging the abnormal tool conditions. Various techniques have been widely researched and studied to maintain machine tool in good condition and to detect tool wear. The occurrence of tool wear can be detected by monitoring the cutting torque, which is basic information for machining. The purpose of this study was to propose a sensor-less cutting force and torque monitoring method and to develop an intelligent stage using this method.
