The measurement techniques for die wear can be classified into the following two categories: direct measurements, which are done using lab techniques; and indirect nondestructive measurements, which are done by plant monitoring. This article describes the details of the plant monitoring techniques, along with comprehensive discussions on the measured wear data based on roughness and hardness of die surfaces. It presents a comparison between the predicted and measured die wear rates.
