The article is devoted to the rational use of energy resources in the processing of blanks machines cutting tools. A new scientific and methodological approach to the establishment of energy-efficient processing conditions, based on the optimization of technological processes on energy criteria. The analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of the known methods of process optimization by lower specific energy consumption. Established a new integrated energy efficiency ratio (“Energy Efficiency”) of the cutting process, which is the ratio of the specific energy consumption of construction material to the specific energy consumption in the cutting zone. Proposed design methodology for determining the Energy Efficiency by the nature of the material, the laws of its deformation and fracture, such as chips and the resulting technological purpose processing. Using the technique of optimization of machining processes using the newly introduced criterion can reduce energy costs in the cutting area by 18–22 %.
