Monitoring of machine tools and optimization of manufacturing processes require accurate values of in process measured quantities such as dimensional error, force, and surface roughness. The measurement as workpiece is in particular important because the final output in machining is evaluated as the quality machined workpiece itself. A new hybrid sensor using pneumatic and optical method has been developed which can monitor the dimensional error and surface roughness in turning. Satisfactory results were obtained through several experiments.
