Tool wear prediction plays an important role in the tip geometry compensation during precision machining. The purpose of this study is to develop a reliable method to predict flank wear during a turning process. The force ratio and increment values are applied to predict one-step-ahead flank wear. The results of this paper show that using force ratios, flank wear can be predicted to within 8 and 11.9%, and also using force increment, flank wear can be predicted to within 10.3% of the actual wear for various turning conditions.
