The use of acoustic emission (AE) and cutting force has been applied to the detection of changes in milling tool insert geometries. These geometries, produced by precision grinding, were intended to simulate different forms of naturally occurring wear such as crater, notch and flank wear, local changes in rake angle and edge breakdown. The results indicate that both cutting force and AE can be used as indicators of changes in cutting tool geometry with consequent implications for diagnostic, geometry-specific, wear detection. © 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd.
