The paper describes one teaching unit – tool wear, which is studied at laboratory classes in the Metal cutting technology course. Through laboratory classes, students gain practical knowledge. The main goal of this teaching unit is to help students to understand the wear process and to define the parameters that describe the wear process. The most important wear parameter is the width of the flank wear of the tool. By monitoring the changes in the values of this parameter, students can see how the wear process is progressing over time. An end mill was taken as an example. The width of the flank wear was measured at intervals of 5 minutes, at distances of 0.1 mm. Based on the measured values, a diagram of tool flank wear was created. Also, the change in the width of the flank wear depending on the cutting time is shown.
