Energy efficiency in manufacturing has become a key concern due to the increased awareness of the adverse effects of global warming. First step for increasing energy efficiency is to quantify the energy consumed for manufacturing processes. This study presents a prediction model for the theoretical energy that is consumed during the manufacturing processes of a rotational part and resulting CO2 release. Theoretical energy is the tool tip energy required to remove the given volume of chip. Prediction model is based on the volume removed for each STEP AP224 feature and the specific cutting energy for the given material.
