Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: In this paper, the influence of feed per tooth and cutting speed on cutting forces is investigated. More specifically, various values of the ratio of depth of cut to feed per tooth, namely chip ratio, are investigated, at 200, 300 and 400 m/min and the cutting forces at a coordination system attached to the workpiece are measured. These are translated into a coordination system attached to the tool edge and then, specific cutting forces are calculated for each case. It is of special interest the area where chip ratio receives values lower than 1, in the so-called inverse cutting area. The results indicate that under these circumstances machining efficiency is increased and at the same time load on cutting tools is decreased
