Single point machining processes such as turning and boring are used extensively in manufacturing applications, including gas turbine rotor and stator production. Though analytical methods exist to describe process parameters such as cutting forces and dynamic instability in such processes, machining is a highly complex nonlinear process and therefore such methods cannot account for process uncertainties. Therefore, the machining process requires on-line system monitoring in addition to physics-based modelling to maximize production and minimize costs.
