A PCB 130D20 microphone is kept in a stand and facing towards the tool tip to capture the emitted sound. The microphone is connected to the computer through a specially designed signal conditioner. GoldWave software is used to record the captured sound with sampling frequency set to 44100Hz. A series of machining experiments were conducted on a Turning machine(XLTURN from MTAB) with Carbide Insert and aluminium work piece of 38mm diameter. Throughout the experiment a constant feed rate set at 0.5 mm/rotation was uniformly maintained.
