Surveys indicate that 15 % of all mechanical components value, manufactured in the world, comes from machining operations and that annual expenditure on machine tools and cutting tools are several billion € for industrially developed countries. Although the available data are from some years ago, increasing trends are indicated and are likely to be sustained until today. If labor, machinery, tools and materials costs, social impact from employment in machining related jobs and technological developments becoming available from machining advances are considered, then the importance of machining and its impact on today’s industry and society is obvious.
