A Wikipedia article entitled “Speeds and Feeds” describes this:
“...the operator fine-tunes the (speed and feed) values while running the machine, based on sights, sounds, smells...".
At least for milling, there are technologies now available to quantifiably measure a tool in a machine and calculate its optimum speeds, feeds and depths of cut. As we face a skills gap in manufacturing, we need solutions that can succeed those "magical eyes, ears and noses".
That's it for now, off to Chicago!
Sharing information about high performance milling technologies, the result of 30 years of research.
