Cutting represents an action where a directly applied force is used to separate a physical object, into two or more parts.

The tools that are usually used for cutting include a saw or a knife, or in the case of science as well as medicine, a microtome or a scalpel.On the other hand, any object that is sharp enough can be used for cutting, that is if the sharp object is much harder than the object that is supposed to be cut,and of course, if enough force is being applied. There are cases where fluids can be used for cutting, for example, water jet cutters,where highly pressurized water is used for cutting objects, in a form of a thin jet.

Cutting represents a shearing as well as compressive occurrence, and it can only be done if the full amount of stress, that is generated by the cutting part,is greater than the highest strength of the object that is under pressure, more precisely the material of which the object is made of. The equation of cutting can be explained like this: stress = force/area.This means that the stress that is generated by the cutting tool is in the direct proportion with the amount of force that is applied, and it is inversely proportional to the area where the contact is made.This furthermore means, the smaller the area which applies the force is, the less force you will need to cut an object. General practice has shown that for cutting soft materials, it is better to use thinner,cutting edges, while for harder materials, it is better to use thicker cutting edges. The balance between the thin blade’s easy cutting action, and the thicker blade’s edge durability and strength, can be seenwhen you compare, for example, a kitchen knife with an axe.

Throughout the manufacturing history, cutting has proven to be the core action. In the case of metal cutting, you will find numerous methods of cutting, and they can be classified by the physical phenomenon used for cutting:

- Chip forming: drilling, turning, sawing, milling, and so on.

- Shearing: scissoring, stamping, and punching.

- Abrading: water-jet, grinding, polishing, and lapping.

- Heat cutting: laser, flame, and plasma cutting.

- Electrochemical: Electrical discharge machining and Etching,.

All methods have their limits when it comes to effect on the material, accuracy, and cost. If you take the heat for example, it can cause damage to the quality of heat treated alloys, and on the other hand, for materials such as aluminum, because of its highly reflective feature, laser cutting is less suitable.
