The results of an experimental investigation in the use of conical-jet proximity sensors for chip detection and wear measurement on a moving shear blade are presented. The proposed scheme is to position, transverse to the movement of the shear blade, a vertical array of proximity sensors whose output as the shear blade moves past, along with the position of(More)
