### Milling - Coromant

A useful value in determining the specific cutting force, used for net power calculations. Metal removal rate, Q (cm 3 /min) The volume of metal removed in cubic mm per minute (inch 3 /minute). It is established using the values for cutting depth, width, and feed. Specific cutting force, k ct. A material constant which is a factor used for power calculations, expressed in N/mm 2. Machining
