Abstract: Advanced manufacturing technology has been adopted to reduce the production cost, improve the product quality and shorten the product development time. High Speed Cutting (HSC) offers the most appropriate opportunity for reduction of run times (Schulz and Moriwaki, 1993). It is difficult to predict the tool wear of HSC, section parameters of chip geometry contains key parameters that affect the calculation of tool wear. It is possible to analyse chip geometry before cutting. The paper presents an algorithm to analyse chip forms and calculate chip geometry for HSC, the analysis of the result of chip geometry can be used to calculate tool wear and analyse tool safety.

Keywords: chip formation; high speed cutting; HSC; tool calculation; high speed machining; tool wear; wear prediction; chip forms; chip geometry; agile systems; tool safety.
