Single-lip deep-hole drilling (SLD) is characterized by high surface quality and compressive residual stress in the subsurface of the drill hole. These properties depend significantly on the thermo-mechanical conditions in the machining process. The required subsurface properties can be adjusted in-process via process monitoring and control when the thermo-mechanical conditions are maintained in the optimum range. Herein, a sensor-integrated SLD tool is introduced, which allows the temperatures near the cutting zone to be measured and the vibrations occurring directly at the drill head to be recorded. A microcontroller-based wireless measurement data transmission method is presented.
