The article presents the results of the research on the plastic flow in the finish turning of 316L (X2CrNiMo17-12-2) stainless steel under dry cutting conditions. The steel was turned at variable cutting speeds and a constant depth of cut. The investigations were based on the Parameter Space Investigation method (PSI) which allowed minimizing the number of test points. It was observed that the phenomenon of slide flow occurred in the range of cutting speeds and feed rates under examination and its intensity depended on the values of these parameters. The phenomenon was more intense in the range of medium and higher cutting speeds and lower feed rates. The side flow results in significant changes between the real and theoretical values of roughness parameter Rz, which range from 40% up to even 330%.
