Accurate monitoring and adaptive control to maintain optimum machining conditions are required for intelligent machine tools. Methods using additional sensors have been studied to add these functions to machine tools; however, incorporating additional sensors leads to higher production costs and reductions in mechanical stiffness. In the present study, a sensorless method of monitoring cutting force that utilizes the current signal and the second-order derivative of position is developed. Moreover, applying sensorless cutting force monitoring, a hybrid control method is proposed in which the sensorless monitoring is used to simultaneously control both the position trajectory and cutting force in the feed direction.
