The understanding of the complex interaction between cutting tool, workpiece and machining system can be improved by advanced simulation of the cutting process. The progress in this field is very important to develop solutions for demanding applications efficiently. By combining different simulation approaches with detailed knowledge of the cutting process it is possible to optimize the design of drilling tools with respect to the microscopic shape in combination with a hard coating. In addition it will be shown how to improve the design of drilling tools for the machining of Ni-based alloys and of tapping tools by optimizing the internal coolant supply with the use of computational fluid dynamics simulation.
