  40. 40. Cutting speed • Cutting speed for turning is the speed at which the work rotates. This is also known as surface speed
  41. 41. 47-42 Cutting Speed • Rate at which point on work circumference travels past cutting tool • expressed in meters per minute (m/min) • Important to use correct speed for material –Too high: cutting-tool breaks down rapidly –Too low: time lost, low production rates
  42. 42. Cutting speed selection • The softer the work material, the faster the recommended cutting speed
  43. 43. • The hardness of the cutting tool material has a great deal to do with the recommended cutting speed. The harder the cutting tool material, the faster the cutting speed. The softer the cutting tool material, the slower the recommended cutting speed
  44. 44. • The depth of the cut and the feed rate will also affect the cutting speed, but not to as great an extent as the work hardness
  45. 45. Factors that Determine cutting speed • The material being cut • The rigidity and condition of the machine • The material of which the tool is made from • The depth of cut and the feed rate • Availability of coolant (cutting fluid)
