RPM: (Revolution per minute)
The number of times the tool or stock rotates 360° during a 1 minute time interval.
SFM: (Surface feet per minute)
The distance traveled in feet per minute by a cutting edge during a 1 minute period. The value is a combination of the material the cutting tool is made of and the material to be machined. These values are best described by the cutting tool manufacturer.
Website Note: I am working on a chart of basic SFMs.
IPM: (Feed inch per minute)
The distance in inches traveled during a one minute time interval.
Chip load: (Chip thickness)
The thickness of the chip that a single cutting edge will produce in one rotation or a single linear pass.
