  • The highest possible cutting speed should be chosen.
  • Optimum chip removal must be ensured so that the chips are not drawnin by the tool.
  • The tools that are used must be very sharp. Blunt tools can cause extreme heat,which results in deformation and thermal expansion.
  • The clamping pressures must not be too high as this would result in deformationof the workpiece and the clamping tool would leave marks in the workpiece.
  • The workpeice must be adequately supported on the machine table and shouldlie as flat as possible.
  • High quality surfaces can only be obtained when the machine operateswith low vibration.
