Tool wear is the most commonly observed and unavoidable issue in metal milling.
The worn or damaged cutting tools will cause materials loss and machines shut-down.
To tackle this problem, we propose a new method for predicting the wear condition of end-milling tool.
First, we adopt statistic-analysis techniques to analyze the collected data.
Second, we select interesting features based on Pearson-correlation coefficient (PCC).
Finally, those features are applied as inputs to the so called echo-state network to predict subsequent tool wear condition.
The experimental results and theoretical analysis both demonstrate that the proposed method performs better than naive feed-forward neural networks (FFNN) and time-series neural networks (TSNN).
