cutting tool is any tool that is used to remove material from the work
piece by means of shear deformation. Cutting may be accomplished by
single-point or multipoint tools. Single-point tools are used in
turning, shaping, plaining and similar operations, and remove material
by means of one cutting edge. Milling and drilling tools are often
multipoint tools. Each grain of abrasive functions as a microscopic
single-point cutting edge (although of high negative rake angle), and
shears a tiny chip.
Cutting tools must be made of a material harder than the material which is to be cut, and the tool must be able to withstand the heat generated in the metal-cutting process. The angle of the cutting face is also important, as is the flute width, number of flutes or teeth, and margin size. In order to have a long working life, all of the above must be optimized, plus the speeds and feeds at which the tool is run.
