The scope of this project aims to develop in-process monitoring of grinding technology with the principal focus on data capture, analysis and process health monitoring. The project would look to identify the possible data streams that are available during a range of grinding processes and determine how this data can be used to better understand, monitor, improve and manage the process. These data streams could include process parameters, part measurements taken during machining, environmental conditions, in process outputs, etc.
This project aims to address the following technological challenges
