How To Read Speeds & Feeds

Benefits of Using Our Speeds & Feeds



Save Time

You can find all the running parameters you need to machine with your purchased tool, whether it’s a miniature size or a larger diameter. With every calculation at your disposal, you don’t have to waste time interpolating your own rates from generalized machining guidelines.



Lower Production Costs

Whether you’re slotting, roughing, or finishing, our calculations account for the exact material and application that you’re using. By increasing tool life and minimizing damage, our Speeds & Feeds can help you lower overall production costs.


Increase Tool Life

Forget about trial and error - you can get the most out of every tool you order from us with our recommended Speeds & Feeds parameters, designed to decrease breakage and maximize tool life.



Minimize Damage

Take the guesswork out of finding that “sweet spot” and run your tool with confidence by taking into account all of your machining variables, from chip loads and depths of cut to tool paths and SFM.
