Based on a theoretical model and the Principle of Minimum Energy [1, 2, 3] the bifurcation and catastrophes in a non-free cutting process are theoretically predicted and experimentally verified. The phenomena lead to the complexity of a cutting process with very strong non-linearity and may be the source of the difficulties in its control.
