Process: Cutting Tools

Overview

Cutting tools are used to remove material from a component and therefore, they must be made from material that is harder than the component it will be used to cut. It is also imperative that the material used can resist the high temperatures resulting from the cutting process. The number of cutting edges and the angle of the cutting face all vary depending on factors such as the required operation. There are various types of cutting tools available. For instance, single point tools - that is, tools with only one cutting edge - are commonly used for processes such as turning and shaping, whilst multi-point tools are generally reserved for operations such as milling, drilling and grinding.
