End milling

Cutting speed

In general, as cutting speed is increased, cutting temperatures rise and tool wear develops and shortens tool life. Conversely, when the cutting speed is reduced, cutting temperatures also reduce and tool wear development is delayed, thereby lengthening tool life.


This also applies to end mills so cutting speed should be set at a point where tool life and machining efficiency are well balanced.
