Metal cutting operation is illustrated in figure. The work piece is securely clamped in a machine tool vice or clamps or chuck or collet. A wedge shape tool is set to a certain depth of cut and is forced to move in direction as shown in figure (mechanics of metal cutting operations).

All traditional machining processes require a cutting tool having a basic wedge shape at the cutting edge.
