This article is concerned with the experimental and numerical investigation of energy consumption involved in the turning of Ti6Al4V titanium alloys. Energy consumption of a machining process is considered as an important machining performance indicator. This article aims to propose an approach for the prediction of energy consumption and related environmental implications using finite element modeling simulations. Machining experiments were conducted using uncoated carbide tools under dry cutting environment. DEFORM-3D software package was utilized to simulate finite element–based machining simulations. Experimental validation was mainly conducted by focusing on the cutting forces and power consumption measurements. Simulated results of the cutting force and power consumption were found in a good agreement with the experimental findings. The amount of CO2 emission resulting from energy consumption during the machining phase is highly dependent on the geographical location. This study also incorporated the energy mix of United Arab Emirates for the environmental calculations. Finally, in the light of proposed methodology, possible future directions and recommendations have also been presented.
