This paper presents an adaptive modeling technique for the identification and monitoring of drilling processes. The major dynamics of drill failure are captured by a threshold mixed model using the in-process drilling vibration data. The threshold learning model and the initial guess parameters are evaluated from the first drilling hole signal. The parameters are updated by an adaptive scheme in the subsequent operations. Two control indices, the transient slope and the steady-state model residuals, are estimated. The process is monitored using a forecasting control chart generated from the control parameters. The monitoring result shows that the threshold approach is capable of predicting the wear state of a tool for various machining operations with a high variability of dynamic data.
