Vibration analysis is one method of machining process monitoring. The vibration obtained in machining is often nonlinear and of a nonstationary nature. Therefore, an appropriate signal analysis is needed for signal processing and feature extraction. In this research, vibrations obtained in the milling of thin-walled workpieces were analyzed using the Hilbert-Huang transform (HHT). The features obtained by the HHT served as machining-state indicators for machining process monitoring. Experimental results showed the effectiveness of the HHT method for detecting chatter and tool damage.
