Tool life and condition monitoring systems can be used effectively in cutting processes. Since no exact and reliable mathematical models exist for the cutting process which are able to predict tool wear, tool break-age, cutting temperature and forces. the development of tool condition monitoring systems are highly requested by industry, especially in recent years. The purpose of this research is to develop a tool condition monitoring and a real-time tool life detection system in turning processes. The software and hardware generated for this research is based on the characteristic variations of the cutting forces.
