Speeds & Feeds Guide
Harvey Tool’s Speeds & Feeds charts take into account lots of specific data to ensure that you’re running each tool with the optimum parameters. Learn more about how to read our charts below.
Benefits of Using Our Speeds & Feeds
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.
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.
In addition to our Speeds & Feeds Library, you can also find specific running parameters directly on our product page and tool details page for every tool. Simply search for your tool number and then click on Speeds & Feeds in the resources section.
