Article
Full-text available
Recent advances in technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) have provided promising opportunities to solve problems in urban traffic. With the help of IoT technologies, online data from road segments are captured by monitoring devices, while real-time data from vehicles are collected through preinstalled se...
Article
Full-text available
Composite recycling technologies have been developed to tackle the increasing use of composites in industry and as a result of restrictions placed on landfill disposal. Mechanical, thermal and chemical approaches are the existing main recycling techniques to recover the fibres. Some optimisation work for reducing energy consumed by above processes...
Article
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has received increasing attention from both academia and industry. However, several challenges including excessively long waiting time and a serious waste of energy still exist in the IIoT-based integration between production and logistics in job shops. To address these challenges, a framework depicting the mech...
Article
The wide use of machining processes has imposed a large pressure on environment due to energy consumption and related carbon emissions. The total power required in machining include power consumed by the machine before it starts cutting and power consumed to remove material from workpiece. Accurate prediction of energy consumption in machining is t...
Article
A considerable amount of global energy consumption is attributable to the machining energy consumption of the machine tool. Thus, reducing the machining energy consumption can alleviate the energy crisis and energy-related environmental pollution. It has been approved that feature sequencing is an effective and economical approach to reduce the mac...
Data
Supplementary data related to the article "Sequencing the features to minimise the non-cutting energy consumption in machining considering the change of spindle rotation speed".
Article
Full-text available
A considerable amount of energy consumed by machine tools is attributable to non-cutting operations, including tool path, tool change, and change of spindle rotation speed. The non-cutting energy consumption of the machine tool (NCE) is affected by the processing sequence of the features of a specific part (PFS) because the plans of non-cutting ope...
Article
Full-text available
To improve energy efficiency, extensive studies have focused on the cutting parameters optimization in the machining process. Actually, non-cutting activities (NCA) occur frequently during machining and this is a promising way to save energy through optimizing NCA without changing the cutting parameters. However, it is difficult for the existing me...
Article
Full-text available
Increasing energy price and emission reduction requirements are new challenges faced by modern manufacturers. A considerable amount of their energy consumption is attributed to the machining energy consumption of machine tools (MTE), including cutting and non-cutting energy consumption (CE and NCE). The value of MTE is affected by the processing se...
Article
The increasing demand of customized production results in huge challenges to the traditional manufacturing systems. In order to allocate resources timely according to the production requirements and to reduce disturbances, a framework for the future intelligent shopfloor is proposed in this paper. The framework consists of three primary models, nam...
Article
Full-text available
Machine tools are widely used in the manufacturing industry, and consume large amount of energy. Spindle acceleration appears frequently while machine tools are working. It produces power peak which is highly energy intensive. As a result, a considerable amount of energy is consumed by this acceleration during the use phase of machine tools. Howeve...
Raw Data
It provides the raw experimental data for the paper “An investigation into reducing spindle acceleration energy consumption of machine tools”. This can help researchers to understand and further promote this research.
Article
Full-text available
Increasing energy price and requirements to reduce emission are new challenges faced by manufacturing enterprises. A considerable amount of energy is wasted by machines due to their underutilisation. Consequently, energy saving can be achieved by turning off the machines when they lay idle for a comparatively long period. Otherwise, turning the mac...
Article
Full-text available
The increased use of carbon fibre and glass fibre reinforced polymer in industry coupled with restrictions on landfill disposal has resulted in a need to develop effective recycling technologies for composites. Currently, mechanical, thermal and chemical approaches have been use to recycle composites. This paper seeks to examine the applications of...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
The increased use of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) in industry coupled with European Union restrictions on landfill disposal has resulted in a need to develop relevant recycling technologies. Several methods, such as mechanical grinding, thermolysis and solvolysis, have been tried to recover the carbon fibers. Optimisation techniques for r...
Thesis
Full-text available
Manufacturing enterprises nowadays face the challenge of increasing energy prices and requirements to reduce their emissions. Most reported work on reducing manufacturing energy consumption focuses on the need to improve the efficiency of resources (machines). The potential for energy reducing at the system-level has been largely ignored. At this l...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Manufacturing enterprises nowadays face the challenge of increasing energy price and emission reduction requirements. An approach to reduce energy cost and become environmental friendly is to incorporate energy consumption into consideration while making the scheduling plans. The research presented by this paper is set in a classical job shop circu...

Project
The EU HORIZON2020 project PERFoRM (Production harmonizEd Reconfiguration of Flexible Robots and Machinery) is targeting the current need for increasing flexibility and reconfigurability in the manufacturing domain. This trend is caused by the increasing demand for more customised, but cheaper and higher quality products by the customer, as well as the necessity for the manufacturer to produce without delays or breakdowns to reduce production costs.
