The paper describes the application of an expert system to develop the carbide cutting tools selection system for computer numerical control (CNC) lathe machine. The aim of the development is to select the optimum tool holder, carbide cutting tools, insert, feed rate, and turning speed for CNC lathe machine. The system is able to select the suitable tips tool based on the dimension, machining parameters, feed rate, turning speed and materials of the work piece. The expert system shell was used to develop the system. Constrain values for the selection procedure is based on design database and international standard. A case study was conducted to verify the capability of the developed system. The developed system helps the manufacturing engineers and technicians to choose the right carbide tool and suitable turning speed for CNC lathe machine.
