Abstract

The machining of brittle glassy, ceramic and crystalline materials is assuming increasing importance in the manufacture of optics, opto-electronics and components for other areas of industry. A restricted range of ductile mode machining can be obtained with controlled cutting parameters (cut-depth and feedrate). The need to improve the control of such cutting parameters makes the use of acoustic emission (AE) sensors a potentially viable technique. An investigation into ultraprecision diamond turning monitoring by measuring AE during the cutting process and studying its correlation with
