Brush deburring requires consistent contact pressure between brush and workpiece. Automating adjustments to control contact pressure has proven difficult, as the sensors available in machine tools are usually not suitable to observe the small amplitude signals caused by this low force process. Additionally, both the power consumption and the vibration signal caused by the process strongly depend on the workpiece surface features. This paper describes a test setup using an instrumented tool holder and presents the corresponding measurement results, aiming to quantify the axial feed of the brush. It also discusses the interpretation of different signal components and provides an outlook on the utilization of the data for tool wear estimation.
