Machining Formulas

# General Speeds and Feeds Formulas

Code

## Imperial Speed and Feed Calculator

 RPM= 12 x SFM = Please enter Speed and Diameter 3.14 x in

Feed Rate = RPM x x in = Please enter RPM, number of teeth and chip load (in/min)

Code

## Metric Speed and Feed Calculator

 RPM= 1000 x M/min = Please enter Speed and Diameter 3.14 x mm

Feed Rate = RPM x x mm = Please enter RPM, number of teeth and chip load (mm/min)

## More about formulas needed to calculate turning, drilling, and of course milling speeds and feeds

Here are a few basic formulas with term explanations to get you going:

### Calculating Spindle Speed (RPM) Using Imperial Cutting Speed:

Code

 RPM= 12 x SFM 3.14 x Diameter

Simplified imperial formula:

 RPM= 3.8 x SFM Diameter

#### Calculating Spindle Speed (RPM) using Metric Cutting Speed:

Code

 RPM= 1000 x SMM 3.14 x Diameter

Simplified metric formula:

 RPM= 318 x SMM Diameter

#### Calculating Feed Rate :

Feed_Rate=RPM x N(teeth) x CL(chip load)

#### Definitions

• RPM = Revolutions Per Minute, Spindle Speed, Number of revolutions of spindle per minute
• SFM = Imperial. Surface Feet Per minute, Cutting speed, Speed at which tip of tool travels through material
• SMM= Metric. Surface Meters Per minute, Cutting speed, Speed at which tip of tool travels through material
• Feed_Rate = Inches Per Minute or Millimeters Per Minute, Feed Rate, Distance in inches or millimeters the tool the will travel through workpiece per minute.
• N = Number of teeth on the cutter
• CL= Chip Load per tooth, This is the advancement of the cutter per revolution per each cutting edge. Otherwise generally explained as the thickness of material each tooth takes per each revolution

### Examples:

Calculate Speeds and Feeds for 1/2" (0.5 in) 2 flute end mill in Mild Steel at cutting speed = 100(ft/min), Chip Load=0.001(inch per tooth)

#### Calculating Spindle Speed (RPM):

Code

 RPM= 12 x SFM 3.14 x Diameter

=

 RPM= 12 x 100(ft/min) =764(revs/min-1) 3.14 x 0.5(in)

For turning applications, we do not need this formula since Spindle Speed is usually given in Constant Surface Speed (CSS), which uses SFM value directly. But if you still want to use the RPM formula, then the diameter value is the actual diameter of the workpiece.

#### Calculating Feed Rate in Inches Per Minute (IPM)

The formula is used for milling and drilling applications. Please note that some tool manufacturers provide their recommended feed rate as feed per revolution. In such cases do not multiply by the number of teeth.

Code

Feed Rate = RPM x N x CL

Feed Rate = 800(RPM) x 2(teeth) x  0.001("chip load) =1.600 (in/min)
