Metal cutting is a process of removing material from a workpiece in the form of chips using single- or multi-point cutting tools with a clearly defined geometry. To some extent, the performance of a cutting tool determines the cutting behaviour and the process capability. In order to design high-performance cutting tools, it is important to clearly understand the tool-workpiece interfaces and the mechanism of surface generation in machining.
