	%X Monitoring the tool flank wear without affecting the
throughput is considered as the prudent method in production
technology. The examination has to be done without affecting the
machining process. In this paper we proposed a novel work that is
used to determine tool flank wear by observing the sound signals
emitted during the turning process. The work-piece material we used
here is steel and aluminum and the cutting insert was carbide
material. Two different cutting speeds were used in this work. The
feed rate and the cutting depth were constant whereas the flank wear
was a variable. The emitted sound signal of a fresh tool (0 mm flank
wear) a slightly worn tool (0.2 -0.25 mm flank wear) and a severely
worn tool (0.4mm and above flank wear) during turning process were
recorded separately using a high sensitive microphone. Analysis
using Singular Value Decomposition was done on these sound
signals to extract the feature sound components. Observation of the
results showed that an increase in tool flank wear correlates with an
increase in the values of SVD features produced out of the sound
signals for both the materials. Hence it can be concluded that wear
monitoring of tool flank during turning process using SVD features
with the Fuzzy C means classification on the emitted sound signal is
a potential and relatively simple method.
