Abstract

This paper deals with an analysis of the energy efficiency of the milling of thermally modified and unmodified beech wood, taking into consideration the angular geometry of the cutting tool (milling cutter). The analysis was made using the METREL Power Q plus MI2392 device to measure the cutting power of the machine during milling with predetermined technical and technological cutter settings. The results were compared with respect to electricity savings in industrial production. The electrical power of the milling cutter, when machining thermally modified wood, was 5% less on average compared with the machining of unmodified wood under identical technological conditions.
