Energy-saving technology has lately attracted considerable attention as a means to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. In order to reduce these emissions, in the machine tool field it is most important to reduce power consumption. This paper investigates the reduction of energy consumption by suitable cutting condition. Power consumption can be reduced by higher cutting feed rate. Power consumption can be reduced by increasing the values of cutting condition, which shortens cycle time.
