This work considers the application of radial basis function neural network (RBFNN) for tool wear determination in the milling process. Tool wear, i.e., flank wear zone widths, have been estimated in two phases using two types of RBFNN algorithms. In the first phase, RBFNN pattern recognition algorithm is used in order to classify tool wear features in three wear level classes (initial, normal and rapid tool wear). On behalf of these results, in the second phase, RBFNN regression algorithm is utilized to estimate the average amount of flank wear zone widths. Tool wear features were extracted in time and frequency domain from three different types of signals: force, acoustic emission and nominal currents of feed drives.
