A practical sensor-based monitoring strategy is developed and discussed in terms of tool wear monitoring as the feature application. The strategy is characterized by the synthesized signal-interpretation with sensor information generated at neighbouring time points. Based on careful consideration on signal processing scheme, wear progress, and the effect of cutting conditions, several synthesis methods are provided and evaluated with machining data. In experiments, the monitoring performance is significantly improved by the synthesis, and is close to one required for the implementation in industries. Also, detailed suggestions to enhance practicality and reliability of the synthesis methods are made.
