A New Formula for Metal Removal Rates in Turning

Mark Albert - October 25, 2013

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.
