Modern production systems stand out due to an increasing degree of capacity utilization of the efficiency available through the production process. As working on a technological threshold as well as on a complex task comes along with an increase of susceptibility to failure, process monitoring is an important means to avoid damage to machines, tools, and component parts and a consequent machine downtime. In order to bring about detection of tool breakage, overload and tool wear, we use different sensor and monitoring systems which are adjusted to the process in the best possible way. This paper gives an overview of existing process monitoring solutions, especially in the field of aero engine manufacturing.
