Abstract

The selection of cutting tools and associated conditions for machining remains in most instances a manual operation. It is made more difficult by the continuing proliferation of cutting tools, inserts and materials from which choice must be induced. This paper describes current research leading to a prototype Intelligent Tool Selection (ITS) system. The purpose of the system is to support process planning personnel and to promote consistency in the choice of cutting tools and conditions. The prototype embodies software modules and procedures. A pilot implementation period in collaborating companies enabled testing of various components with promising results. © 1995.
