In this paper, the performance of a new measurement system CITE (CNC Integrity Tracing Equipment) is investigated. CITE measurement system is the name given to the data acquisition hardware and software developed by University West for recording the movements of CNC machine tools. It can be used for monitoring of the milling process and recording the milling errors. The aim of this study is investigate the capability of the CITE system in prediction of the surface roughness. In an example cutting test, the CITE measurement system was used for recording selected sections in straight milling process and curved milling process. After that, surface roughness, predicted by the CITE measurement system, was compared with the CMM (Coordinate measurement machine). The investigation shows that the CITE measurement system is comparable to the CMM for evaluation of roughness in curved sections. In straight sections, the evaluation of roughness by CMM machine is close to the simulation values that predicts surface roughness considering tool run-out.
