The development of pollution-prevention initiatives in the government sector and heightened consumer focus on 'green' (i.e. environmentally conscious) products has placed increased pressure on industry to evaluate the ultimate disposability their products and their manufacturing waste streams. Ever more attention is turning to such issues as machine energy efficiency and process waste. The main objectives is to develop new machine concepts, components, systems equipment and tools aimed at improving environmental consciousness of flexible machining transfer lines for medium/large-batch production of mechanical components considering also difficult to cut materials. The final demonstrator will be a high speed transfer line consisting of two critical machining units and a high speed workpiece transport system.
