Real-time identification of tool wear in shop floor environment is essential for optimization of machining processes and implementation of automated manufacturing systems. In order to realize the real-time tool wear condition monitoring for different cutting conditions, a sensor integration strategy which combines the information from multiple sensors and machining parameters is proposed. Experiment results show that under different conditions, a higher rate of tool wear identification can be achieved by using sensor integration model with neural network. Also, the neural network is a very effective method of sensor integration for on-line monitoring of tool abnormalities.
