Automated and camera-supported monitoring of tool wear

Camera-based monitoring of tool wear enables the condition-based use of tools in production. The service life can thus be increased and rejects due to tool breakage or increasing machining errors can be reduced.


The service life of tools can fluctuate by more than 50 % depending on the batch. To avoid breakages and unplanned downtimes, it is therefore often recommended to change tools after only 50 to 80 % of the average tool life. This results in increased set-up and tool costs. Wear monitoring offers the potential to fully utilise the technically possible tool life and at the same time minimise the risk of tool breakage.
