Modern machines allow to position cutting tools relative to the workpiece with an accuracy of 1 micron, but increasing of producing detail accuracy can be achieved only by an increase of sharpness of the cutting tool, which will guarantee allow to cut required metal pads of the size of 2 … 5 microns, and will reduce the time spent on finishing operations. Existing manufacturing techniques and sharpening of cutting tools let to receive the sharpness of the blade up to 10 microns. A further increase of sharpness is only possible with the use of high-speed sharpening.
