A model to determine the optimal parameters in a machining process for the most profitable utilization of machining energy

This article presents a model within the sustainable machining paradigm. In general, the optimization of machining process for the minimum energy consumption alone does not have sufficient impetus for application in the manufacturing companies wherein profit maximization remains the preferred mode of operation. In this study, a novel objective function for the optimization of machining process is modelled which determines the optimal machining parameters for the maximum profit per unit energy consumption. The model is applied to an example problem of a single-pass turning operation and is found unique from the past models focused on the minimization of either energy consumed or cost incurred.
