This paper is the first in a two-part work, where the investigation into the characteristics of multiple machine pro-cesses is made in order to accurately control them via the frequently used machine centre platform. The two machining processes under investigation are grinding and hole making: for grinding anomalies, grinding burn and chatter and for hole making, drilling, increased tool wear and onset of drill tool malfunction, which is also significant to severe scoring and material dragging. Most researchers usually report on one ma-chining process as opposed to multiple which is less consistent with automated flexible systems where more than one ma-chining process must be catered for. For efficient monitoring of automated multiple manufacturing processes, any unwant-ed anomalies should be identified and dealt with in a prompt and seamless manner. This first part provides two experimen-tal set-ups (same set-up with tool interchange) to obtain signal signatures for both grinding and drilling phenomena (using the same material). Here, an approach based on neural net-works and CARTs is used to reliably detect anomalies for both processes using a single acquisition path, opening the door for control implementation.
