In the rough machining stage, band saw machines are widely used to cut various raw materials into the required dimensions. The replacement of blade due to the blade degradation accounts for a large part of the total cost of band saw machine users. Therefore, mitigating the blade degradation by dynamically optimizing the cutting parameters can produce great economic benefits and is also a good exploration for smart manufacturing. To achieve this goal, the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) model is proposed to map the complicated relationship between the cutting parameters and blade degradation. Then a simulation technique is used to search the optimal cutting parameters based on the blade degradation estimation from the model output, which would help alleviate the blade degradation. The proposed optimization method is validated on the data collected during the real manufacturing process of band saw machines. The comparative results demonstrate that the obtained optimal cutting parameters can effectively extend the service life of the blade for a band saw machine.
