Drilling Speed
Cutting speed may be referred to as the rate that a point on a circumference of a drill will travel in 1 minute. It is expressed in surface feet per minute (SFPM). Cutting speed is one of the most important factors that determine the life of a drill. If the cutting speed is too slow, the drill might chip or break. A cutting speed that is too fast rapidly dulls the cutting lips.
