Cutting Tools

This category comprises tools that are used to remove material from a workpiece through shear deformation. Cutting tools are manufactured as single-point tools or multiple-point tools. Single-point tools cutting tools are commonly used for shaping, planing, turning, and similar tasks that require only a single cutting edge. Multiple-point cutting tools incorporate a number of teeth or other cutting edges, that can simultaneously remove material in a single pass. Examples of cutting tools include drills, reamers, planers, saws, grinders, shapers, taps and dies, and fly cutters.
