A cutting tool is considered general purpose when it can perform a wide range of cutting operations on different types of materials including ferrous and non-ferrous metals, plastics and composites.  General purpose cutting tools typically have a moderate amount of cutting edge strength, which allows them to cut most materials at an acceptable speed without dulling quickly.  They also have a moderate rake angle, which contributes to their versatility by reducing the chances of vibration during the cutting process.  In summary, a general purpose carbide cutting tool is versatile enough to handle a range of cutting applications and materials while still maintaining a decent level of cutting edge strength and rake angle.

AlTiN coating improves the performance and lifespan of a cutting tool. It is a thin layer of aluminum titanium nitride that is applied to the surface of the tool, providing improved hardness, wear resistance, and lubricity. The coating can also reduce friction between the cutting tool and the material being cut, resulting in better cutting speeds and reduced heat buildup. Overall, AlTiN coating can enhance the efficiency and precision of cutting tools, making them more effective for a wide range of applications.
