Circular cutters with uniform radial cracks are extensively used in the cutting processes. Unwanted noise, vibration & accidental failure associated with the cutting process have become an important economic and technological problem in the industry. The knowledge of natural frequencies of components is of great interest in the study of response of structures to various excitations. Hence, it is important to study a circular tile cutter with central hole, which fixed at inner edge and free at outer edge with its dynamic response. In this study some efforts are taken for analyzing vibration characteristics of tile cutter used in tile cutting industries with free boundary condition but having different (enlargement of stress concentration holes, slot end hole diameter ,numbers of cutting teeth’s, aspect ratio, effect of number and length of cracks, variable radial slit, circular concentric slit, thickness).Results From the FEA and FFT it is found that, this study is needful for design data preparation to avoid resonance and vibration in tile cutting industries from which finding out natural frequency and vibration w.r.t. different changes in tile cutter. Thus Theoretical, ANSYS & FFT results obtained are to be compared.
