Cutting Theory and Chip Morphology
Machining is a mechanical process where excess material from a workpiece can be removed by cutting action to produce a part of specified geometrical shape and surface finish. Machining can be performed on virtually all solid materials even though the term commonly applies to the cutting of metals and alloys, less frequently to plastics and wood, and rarely to other solid substances (rocks, composites, etc.).
