Machine tools have an impact on the environment due to their energy consumption. New strategies with focus on the reduction of the energy consumed by manufacturing processes have received significant attention owing to the rise of the electricity costs. This paper presents an experimental study related to the optimization of cutting parameters in turning of AISI 1018 steel. The aim of the study was to minimize the quantity of electrical energy required by the machine tool in order to perform the cutting operation. The material removal rate was set to a constant value in all the experimental trials so as to analyze the effect that the cutting parameters have on the energy consumed. Robust Design was used to determine the effects of the depth of cut, feed rate, and cutting speed on the energy required by the machine tool, considering two sources of noise in the experimental trials. The results of this work show that the techniques covered by the concept of Robust Design can be used to minimize the energy consumed and variation of the machining process.
