- Conference Paper
Cutting technologies are the engines behind manufacturing. Without cutting, none of our modern products would ever been put into service. Developing new materials directly needs research for process windows in cutting. Huge engineering efforts brought cutting in the position where it is today and despite all rumors trying to declare, that cutting is outdated or cutting research is finished it is still a vital field of research and prone to rapid innovations. Recent material developments challenge cutting technology. Recent material developments of cutting material as well as understanding of the cutting process enable to cope with the challenges imposed from difficult to cut materials. Research results and recent developments in machine tools show how to combine the multiple requirements from ecology, economy and quality. Machine tool, tool and process are the ingredients of success in cutting. Show more
