Micro milling is currently being used to make micro-sized products, such as in MEMS, medical devices, etc. But in the process of machining, especially in roughing process, micro milling spends a lot of energy that can still be reduced to contribute to green manufacturing. This study focuses on developing the model of energy consumption during the micro milling processes. The model is then used to map the energy consumption from different cutting toolpaths and strategies. Furthermore this study also comparing and characterizing the energy consumed between macro milling and micro milling of the same part shape but with significant different in size. In conclusion, this study shows different characteristics and comparison in energy consumption between micro milling and macro milling.
