A simple first-order five-variable cutting-tool temperature predicting equation is developed by a 25−1 fractional factorial design. Only 16 testing conditions are used in the experiment. Confirmatory tests indicate the adequacy of the first-order predicting equation. These tests also tend to confirm the physical property of chip equivalent whereby the same temperature is obtained for a constant chip equivalent at a given cutting speed.
