The recommended values for v15 in the Tables 7.8 and 7.9 are applicable for depths
of cut from ap = 1 to 4 mm. If depth of cut is greater than 4 mm (up to about 10 mm),
it is necessary to reduce these values by about 8 %. Allowable cutting speeds are
valid for a tool life T = 15 min.
These cutting speeds can be transformed to allow for a tool life of T = 8 min, T = 30
min, T = 60 min with the following factors.

v8 = v15 1,25
v30 = v15 0,8
v60 = v15 0,6
Currently, because of the short tool change times for clamp-type tool holders, we
predominantly work with tool life values from:
T= 15 to 30 min.
In many cases, though not exclusively, cam-controlled automatic lathes work with
tool life values from T = 240 to 480 min. Numerically-controlled lathes with short
reset times operate with v15 to v60 values.
Depending on the work required for reset or setup time and the number of work-
pieces to be machined, cutting speeds and thus the tool life values are adapted to the
production conditions.
9.8 Failures in drilling 139

Helical flutes right-handed helix

direct the chips in the direction opposite to that of the feed, backward in the shank
direction. For this reason, right-handed helix taps are used for blind holes. The nor-
mal helix angle is around 15.
Taps with right-handed helical flutes, in which the flutes are particularly wide-
spaced and the helix angle is large (35), are used for deep blind holes. The taps
rake angles range from 3 to 20.

High speed tools are frequently coated with hard materials (TiC, TiN) to improve
tool life travel. Cemented carbide

For roughing operations, milling cutters with inserted cemented carbide cutting
edges (indexable inserts) are predominantly used.
End mill cutters are generally totally made of cemented carbide, with/ without hard
material coating (TiC, TiN) , characterised by increased tool life travel.

13.8.1 Parameters influencing the grinding procedure
An optimal grinding result may only be expected if the grinding tool and the condi-
tions (peripheral speed, feed values, infeed) are correctly aligned for the workpiece.
The following Table 13.15 shows the extent to which an alteration of the individual
factors affects the grinding result.
