The need for improving the productivity of machining operations has encouraged the development of new concepts and techniques, such as thermal machining, as well as high speed and ultra-high speed machining. High metal removal rate machining shares the goal of improving productivity with the others, but its approach is more evolutionary in nature; it attempts to take advantage of step advances in machine and cutting tool technologies, as they occur, and to incorporate them into machining operations with a minimum of delay.
