Abstract

CNC machining is one of the major activities in the manufacturing industry which is responsible for a significant portion of the total consumed energy. However, the energy efficiency of CNC machining is surprisingly low. It is important to provide valuable insights for practitioners to enhance energy efficiency of CNC machining. This paper analyzes the energy consumption characteristics of CNC machining process and exploits the influence factors for energy efficiency improvement through a theoretical analysis. A series of operational strategies for energy efficiency improvement of CNC machining are presented through a review and research framework. The future research directions are identified and summarized for more energy savings.
