Orthogonal and Oblique Cutting

Orthogonal Cutting: The cutting condition when chip is expected to flow along the orthogonal plane is known as orthogonal cutting.pure orthogonal cutting is orthogonal cutting when principle cutting angle is 90 degree.

Oblique Cutting: When the chip does not flow on orthogonal plane i.e chip deviates from orthogonal plane then it is called oblique cutting.

Basic Difference Between Orthogonal and Oblique Cutting: in oblique cutting inclination angle(lamda) have some value but in orthogonal cutting there is no lamda i.e lamda=zero.

Causes of orthogonal cutting:

  • Restricted cutting effect.
  • tool nose radius-ing.
  • inclination angle (Lamda not equal to zero).


  1. very nice . my search ends. but pls add some more data about diff.

  2. Thanks soooo much dude. You totally saved my life. Thumbs up!
