The ability to monitor the behaviour of machine tools and cutting processes is important both from a research perspective as well as in industrial applications such as adaptive control, condition monitoring, process optimization and quality control. The division of Manufacturing Engineering at Lulei University of Technology has been carrying out research in the area of hgh speed and multi axis (5-axis) machming since the mid 1990s. Ths European and nationally funded research, much of it carried out with Nottingham University and Sandvlk Coromant, as well as in manufacturing companies in Sweden and the UK, has focused on understanding the possibilities offered by 5-axishgh-speed machining, as well as understanding the machining process.
