The appropriate methodology adopted for the
design of single point cutting tool is an important aspect
of tool engineering. It deals with the design of tool shank,
design of single point cutting tool, and various forces
involved during machining of the workpiece. Selection of
the appropriate material for the design of the single
point cutting tool is paramount important and
consideration must be put emplace.Various aspects of
tooling, material cost, fabrication, manufacturing
methods and the proper functioning of product should
be considered. Strength and rigidity of tool is also taken
into account while designing single point cutting tool.
The main design criterion for shank size is rigidity. The
deflection at the cutting edge is limited to a certain value
depending on the size of machine, cutting conditions and
