Özet

Sustainable manufacturing consists of environmental protection, profitability and societal benefit for all industrial areas. Manufacturing practices are investigated for optimize production efficiency while minimizing environmental impact and maintaining social equity. It can be achieved through changes in products, processes and systems related to the sustainability issues. In sustainable manufacturing process, the natural resources which are key elements of sustainability must be used prudently by academic, scientific, cultural and human organizations. In this context, sustainable machining can be defined as a process which has been performed of sustainable manufacturing by using alternative machining technologies such as cryogenic machining, high pressure jet assisted machining. Sustainable machining investigates the conflict and synergy between economical and environmental considerations as well as the effect of system boundaries in determining optimum machining conditions. This paper presents a general evaluation on the importance of sustainable machining technologies in obtaining sustainable manufacturing objectives.
