Cutting technologies are utilized in many industrial sectors, such as automobile, aircraft, and medical-device manufacturing as well as dies and molds. Thus, the requirements for higher geometric accuracy, better surface integrity, and longer component service lifetimes have substantially increased. In addition, maintaining high machining efficiency while simultaneously reducing power consumption and CO2 emissions during machining is important for sustainable development.

This special issue features 11 papers on the most recent advances in cutting technologies for metals and composite materials.

- Reverse finishing characteristics of drilling surfaces

- Machining error simulation for end milling

- Visualization of cutting phenomena using a single-crystal diamond tool

- Milling of TiB2 particle-reinforced high-modulus steel

- Electrodischarge-assisted turning of carbon fiber-reinforced polymers

- Suppression of chatter vibration during double-insert turning

- Prediction of surface roughness components during turning

- Microtome blades for high-precision tissue sectioning

- Boiling of coolant near the cutting edge in high-speed machining

- Residual stress during drilling of aluminum alloy

- Effect of strain hardening on burr control during drilling

This issue provides an understanding of recent developments in cutting technologies, aiming to inspire further research in this field.

We deeply appreciate the careful work of all the authors and thank the reviewers for their diligent efforts.
