Chipload Calculator

Target Area

Below are the suggested chip load ranges based on material being machined and tool diameter. This calculator should be used as a starting reference range only and is based on cutting depth being equal to cutting diameter of the tool. For deeper cuts, it is necessary to reduce the chipload as follows:

Cut depth 2x Tool Diameter reduce chipload by 20-25%
Cut depth 3x Tool Diameter reduce chipload by 40-50%

PLEASE INPUT YOUR OWN APPLICABLE VALUES INTO THE RESPECTIVE FEED RATE / UNITS / RPM AND NUMBER OF FLUTES FIELDS AND THE CHIP LOAD RESULT WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE REFLECTED IN THE RED CHIP LOAD RESULT FIELD.

To determine the optimum chip load for tool life/finish quality for particular material and tool, please refer to Pg 47 of our CNC Tooling Guide
