Effect of Technological Parameters of Machining on Energy Efficiency in Face Milling of Heat-Treated Oak Wood

Peter Koleda, Štefan Barcík, Adriana Nociarová


This paper examines the influence of technological parameters on electrical power in the plane milling of native and modified oak wood. Milling was performed under various cutting conditions, including cutting speeds of 20, 40, and 60 m s-1, feed rates of 6, 10, and 15 m min-1, and cutting edge angles of 15, 20, and 30° on five different samples of oak wood. The wood was native and heat-treated at temperatures of 160, 180, 210, and 240 °C. An analysis of variance and post-hoc Duncan test revealed the influence of the examined parameters on the energy consumption of milling, whereby the cutting speed was the most statistically significant parameter and was directly dependent on the speed of the asynchronous motor and the moment transmission to the miller spindle.
