Cutting produces offcuts and chips in many different ways. One such process is where the chip is formed along a plane of shear inclined from the tool tip to the workpiece surface. This shear plane cutting process, found when cutting many different materials, comprises friction, plasticity and material separation. The importance of including material separation in the analysis is the main focus of this research, which involves the study of chip formation by cutting PMMA and Nylon 66 and wood.
