Machining is most widely used to transform the material into the product of desired shape and size by the mechanism of removing excess material. Machining involves group of processes, wherein the excess material is removed from the work specimen in sequential steps with the help of cutting tools (either single point or multi-point). It is to be noted that machining with a single-point cutting tool uses well-defined tool geometry (i.e. cutting edges (honed, sharp, chamfered) possessing different faces (rake, flank, etc.)), whereas grinding process uses abrasive wheel with multi-point micro-cutting edges having undefined geometry [1–3].
