A close set chipbreaker limits the thickness of the shavings possible. A heavy or moderately cambered iron would be used for material removal, the final stages of stock preparation with a smoother would not be done with heavy shavings. The closed set chipbreaker mitigates or avoids tearout, it also lets you remove it from the previous stock preparation stages.
