Form Tool

« Back to Glossary Index

In the manufacturing industry, a form tool refers to a type of cutting tool that is used to create a specific shape or form on a workpiece. This tool is typically made from high-speed steel, carbide, or ceramic and is designed to be used in a lathe or similar machining equipment. The form tool is used to create complex shapes that would be difficult or impossible to achieve using traditional machining methods. The process of using a form tool begins with the design of the desired shape or form. The form tool is then carefully machined to match this design, and it is mounted in the lathe or other machining equipment. The workpiece is then rotated against the form tool, which cuts away the excess material to create the desired shape or form. This process can be repeated multiple times to create multiple parts with the same shape or form.
