A New Formula for Metal Removal Rates in Turning

An expert on cutting tool theory and practice is proposing a new formula for calculating the metal removal rates in turning operations. This formula factors in the diameter of the workpiece to yield more accurate results and lead to better decisions about productivity.

Edmund Isakov, PhD, a well-respected expert on cutting tool theory and practice, is proposing a new formula for calculating the metal removal rates in turning operations. Dr. Isakov is a proponent of this formula because it factors in the diameter of the workpiece to yield more accurate results. The new formula will help manufacturing engineers make better decisions about productivity.
