Cutting Force

Cutting force is the amount of force or pressure applied by a cutting tool, such as a band saw blade or mill drill bit, during the cutting process. The cutting force depends on factors like material properties, blade or tool geometry, cutting speed, and feed rate. Proper management of cutting force is crucial for maintaining cutting accuracy, preventing tool or workpiece damage, and extending tool life. Excessive cutting force can lead to tool deflection, chatter, or breakage.
