Steel is often machined with cutting operations such as turning, drilling or milling. Machinability is a very important material property. Important criteria for machinability are wear, surface condition, chip shape and cutting torque or cutting forces. These criteria are important to derive the cutting data of the tool in terms of cutting speed, feed rate and cutting depth.
