Continuous need to increase productivity and reliability in machining has led to high-performance machines that are often characterized by high energy demands. As a result, energy minimization is identified as one of the key goals in machining. With the availability of improved predictive models for energy estimation in machining, energy-conscious process planning for machining is now possible. The present work focuses on the assessment of process plans of machined parts from energy consumption point of view. An experimentally validated model for energy estimation is first presented. Using this model two important process planning variables on energy consumption in machining has been studied. Firstly selection of tool paths including curvilinear tool paths has been considered from energy consumption point of view. Secondly, strategies for the selection of cutting parameters for roughing, semi-finishing and finishing from energy consumption perspective are discussed.
