In this study, the cutting force and surface roughness were considered as the test indexes, and cutting speed, feed rate and cutting depth were the primary factors.
In general, the thrust and torque conditions will mainly depend on the manufacturing conditions employed, such as: feed, cutting speed, tool geometry, machine and cutting tool rigidity, etc.
Gong, Li, and Ehmann (2005) studied the dynamics of initial penetration in drilling with twist drills and verified that cutting speed at the chisel edge is small when compared to the main cutting edges.
This is due to the fact that increase in cutting speed increases frictional force applied on rake face of drill bit which gets converted into heat and ultimately leads to increase in temperature.
The surface finish in milling is found to be influenced in varying amounts by a number of factors, such as cutting speed, feed rate, depth of cut, material characteristics, tool geometry, workpiece deflection, stability and stiffness of the machine tool--cutting tool--workpiece system, built-up edge, cutting fluid, etc.
