Abstract

This paper describes the method and calculation tool for carbon footprint assessment of machine tool. This method can get greenhouse gas (GHG) emission of the manufacturing stage of standard parts from bill of material directly. Furthermore, this paper provides the calculation method of the finishing allowance of the machined parts. The proposed method may not only accelerate engineers' estimation of carbon footprints for machined parts, but also obtain GHG emission of machined parts from the engineering drawing. A carbon footprint assessment tool of machine tool is developed by using Access software. A machine tool case is presented to demonstrate the capability of the proposed method and calculation tool.
