ABSTRACT While deep rolling as a method for fatigue enhancement is a well established process in the automotive and aerospace industry, process safety becomes a more and more important issue for companies using this technology. As deep rolling parameters have a great influence on the components fatigue life and strength, an inaccurate process may cause premature failure and lead to damage or accident. Therefore ECOROLL and the Laboratory of Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL Aachen) developed tools with integrated sensors and software for monitoring the deep rolling process. The software can be adapted to almost any process setup and tool. Triggers and tolerances can be modified through a large number of parameters. Any possible process failures can be detected and parts being treated inaccurately are indicated. KEYWORDS Fatigue, Deep Rolling, Process Monitoring, Software, Tools
