Cutting tools are of great importance to sustainability improvement. While the cost of cutting tools is less than 4% of the machining cost, they account for up to 40% of the total downtime of machine tools and indirectly affect 30% of the total machining costs. As a result, the more durable and capable a cutting tool is, the more cost resources and energy could be saved.
