Cutting temperature is an important factor which directly affects machining precision, tool wear, and workpiece integrity in machining process. Based on the relevant data of property of tool and workpiece materials, chip deformation model, oxidation and friction tests, and a more suitable cutting finite element model (FEM) according to the actual situation were established. The maximum value of cutting temperature was simulated by using FE software, and the optimum parameters (cutting speed was about 200–280 m min−1 and cutting depth was about 0.1–0.3 mm) were obtained when cutting AISI1045 steel with the Al2O3/ZrB2/ZrO2 ceramic tool. Relevant cutting test was carried out to verify the precision of simulation. Results indicated that the calculated temperature was in well agreement with the experimental value, and this agreement was better at high cutting speed. The FEM developed in this study provides a methodology for the design and choice of cutting tools in manufacturing industries.
