The work investigates applicability of recurrence quantification analysis (RQA) in metal cutting with an objective to detect tool wear. The effectiveness of applying a system input signal; the drive motor current, in relation to a system output signal; the tool vibration, for the analysis is also explored. The work establishes conclusively that three of the RQA variables, percent determinism, percent recurrence and entropy are sensitive to tool wear.
