Cutting and abrasive processes affect the surface layer state of the components treated. This determines their performance in service. An adjustment of the surface layer properties would allow for enhanced performance. This paper introduces the influences of named processes on the surface layer state and their systematics. Models and sensor concepts for surface conditioning are described and combined to soft sensors which are the basis for active control within the processes. A validation study and actual applications of the conditioning concept are shown, allowing for further technological and scientific understanding of surface conditioning and its contribution to material and energy efficiency.
