Abstract

A cutting tool equipped with a sensor to detect flank wear and tool failure was developed. The sensor is a resistance film circuit formed from titanium on the flanks of a throw away alumina tip. The sensor is located in a position parallel with the cutting edge. The means of detecting wear of the tool is by measuring electical resistance. The electrical resistance of the sensor gradually increases as the resistance film circuit is worn off by flank wear and the circuit becomes narrower.
