Tool Life Tool life can be defined on the time interval for each tool works satisfactorily between into successive grindings.  These are three common ways of expressing Tool life. 1. As time period in minutes between two successive grindings. 2. In terms of no. of components machined between two successive grindings. 3. In terms of … Read more

Cutting Speed, Feed And Depth Of Cut in Machining

Cutting Speed, Feed And Depth Of Cut in Machining Cutting Speed Cutting speed of a tool can be defined as the rate at which its cutting edge passes over the surface of the work-piece in unit time. It is normally expressed in terms of surface speed in meters per minute. In machining it is important … Read more
