The present invention provides in various aspects a cutting tool which comprises a cutting tool insert (210) with a tip portion of cBN material having a cutting edge (216) formed therein and a base portion forming a sintered composition with the tip portion, and a body portion (220) coupling the cutting tool insert with a shank of the cutting tool, wherein the cutting tool insert (210) has a rake face (212) and a first flank face (214) defining the cutting edge (216). In one aspect, the rake face (212) has a negative rake angle relative to an axis parallel to a centre axis of the body portion. In another aspect, a second flank face (218) defining a further edge with the first flank face is formed such that the cutting edge (216) and the further edge do not have a common vertex. Herein the second flank face (218) is tilted with respect to an axis parallel to a centre axis of the body portion (220) by an angle greater than 0o.

The invention relates to a device for connecting electrical conductors (31, 32, 3n) having shielding layers (21, 22, 2) in a electromagnetically compatible manner against interference fields, particularly in motor vehicles. The conductors (31, 32, 3n) to be connected are guided in a housing (5) of the device, which is also referred to as high-voltage distributor. In order to ensure the electromagnetic shielding, the shielding layers (21, 22, 2n), of the stripped cables are turned inside out and are pulled over contact segments (11, 12, 1n) of the housing (5) provided therefor, as a result of which an electrical contacting takes place. The fixing of the shielding layers (21, 22, 2n) is realized by one terminal (41, 42, 4n) each.
