Model Based Approach for Energy and Resource Efficient Machining Systems


About this book

This book provides a concept to analyze and increase the energy and resource efficiency of machining systems. Machining systems are widely used to produce workpieces in large quantities and with complex geometrical shapes. These systems, however, are also relevant in terms of energy and resource consumption, which is strongly connected to the choice of cutting fluid strategy. Within the focus of the concept, cutting fluid connects the elements of the machining system and results in interactions between them. Based on this description and an extensive literature review, a modeling approach is developed that comprises the relations between process parameters, cutting fluid strategies, and relevant machining system elements. The performance of the machining system is assessed with regard to environmental, economic as well as technological indicators and improved by various organizational and technical measures. The exemplary application of the developed concept is carried out in the context of two case studies and also indicates the corresponding effects of improvement measures.

Table of Contents

Chapter 1. Introduction
This chapter aims at the motivation behind the work by presenting the current context and challenges for energy and resource efficiency of machining systems (Sect. 1.1). Following this, the research objectives are derived and the outline of the book is presented (Sect. 1.2).

Chapter 2. Machining Systems and Impact of Cutting Fluids
This chapter presents the theoretical basis of this work. First, the levels of abstractions in a machining system are presented as well as relevant interactions between them (Sect. 2.1). As a decisive influencing factor on design and operation of the system, cutting fluids are then presented with regards to functions and strategies (Sect. 2.2). Following this, the subsystems are described in more detail regarding task and energy and resource consumption (Sect. 2.3) as well as their interactions within machining process chains (Sect. 2.4). Approaches for modeling the described systems and impacts are described in the following (Sect. 2.5). The chapter concludes with a preliminary statement on the potential need for further research (Sect. 2.6).

Chapter 3. State of Research
This chapter focuses on the state of research regarding the configuration of machining systems in view of technological, environmental and economic requirements. As a first step, central perspectives are presented for the limitation of relevant approaches, which are classified in a citation network and provide a general overview (Sect. 3.1). Further, additional criteria are developed to analyze and compare selected approaches within the context of energy and resource efficient machining systems (Sect. 3.2). On the basis of these criteria, a detailed review of the selected literature is conducted to provide a comparative overview. The research gap revealed by the comparative overview demonstrates the need for further research (Sect. 3.3).

Chapter 4. Concept Development
This chapter focuses on the concept development, starting with the definition of requirements and presentation of the general concept structure (Sect. 4.1). The main part of this chapter is the modeling of input and output flows as well as the interactions within machining systems (Sect. 4.2). Based on these models technological, environmental and economic indicators are derived (Sect. 4.3) and integrated improvement measures are presented (Sect. 4.4). Finally, the presented concept is implemented within a prototypical software tool and the application cycle is presented (Sect. 4.5).

Chapter 5. Exemplary Application of the Concept
In this chapter the developed concept is applied to different application cases in order to underline its applicability and potential. By using the implemented concept according to the previous chapter, individual machining systems are analyzed and improved (Sect. 5.1). Moreover, the planning of multiple machining systems within a process chain is also considered and the impact of specific improvement measures is demonstrated (Sect. 5.2). In addition, an overview of all considered measures in relation to their area of application is presented (Sect. 5.3).

Chapter 6. Summary, Discussion and Outlook
The final chapter recapitulates the work and summarizes the findings (Sect. 6.1). Following this, the proposed concept is critically discussed (Sect. 6.2) and closes with an outlook by suggesting a future research path (Sect. 6.3).
