Manual inspection of cutting tools requires machine down-time, adding to production cost. As we transition to Industry 4.0, there is an expectation that such manual condition monitoring will be replaced with embedded sensors. Companies such as Sandvik are developing Cyber Physical systems for machine tools to enhance the quality and efficiency of these operations. Embedded sensors will provide co…
