An in-process surface roughness adaptive control (ISRAC) system in end milling operations was researched and developed. A multiple regression algorithm was employed to establish two subsystems: the in-process surface roughness evaluation (ISRE) subsystem and the in-process adaptive parameter control (IAPC) subsystem. These systems included not only machine cutting parameters such as feed rate, spindle speed, and depth of cut, but also cutting force signals detected by a dynamometer sensor. The multiple-regression-based ISRE subsystem predicted surface roughness during the finish cutting process with an accuracy of 91.5%. The integration of the two subsystems led to the ISRAC system. The testing resulted in a 100% success rate for adaptive control, proving that this proposed system could be implemented to adaptively control surface roughness during milling operations. This research suggests that multiple linear regression used in this study was straightforward and effective for in-process adaptive control. © Springer-Verlag London Limited 2007.
