Also known as Step Down or Cut Depth (often expressed as a percentage of ADOC to endmill cutting diameter).

Heavy ADOC

-More tool deflection, requiring lighter chip load
-Difficulty with chip evacuation may require lighter ROOC and/or fewer flutes

Light ADOC

-Less tool deflection, allowing heavier chip load
-Better chip evacuation, allowing increased ROOC and/or more flute
