1060 – 11 – What is Speed & Feed?
Two more important factors in sawing are speed and feed. Speed is the rate at which the blade cuts across the material. Feed is both the rate of travel and depth of the blade’s penetration into the material Horizontal band saws feed most times takes place in a downward motion pushing into the material. Vertical machines are typically fed sideways into the blade.
Usually, faster speeds attain superior cutting angles. They also help make cuts more efficient. Faster feeds get better material removal. In order to be cost effective, you must use the highest feed and speed rates the machine will allow while optimizing tool life.
