Insert manufacturers give sfm numbers based on a 15 minute tool life. That doesn t necessarily mean you ll get that on your machine at that sfm. Rigidity of the machine and set up and use of coolant have a lot to do with it too. Also if you want your tools to last longer than 15 minutes you can use a more conservative number.
