Contact stress on the tool has been measured with a split-tool apparatus that has a poor resolution of the stress distribution, and with photoelastic tools that cannot be used with real cutting parameters since the materials are too weak. This paper presents an improved split-tool design allowing continuous stress distribution dataset instead of discreet steps by using a tilted separation plane between the tool tip and the tool body. This paper optimizes the separation plane angle with 3D-FEM to minimize deflection.
