Abstract The power shortage triggered by the Great East Japan Earthquake, regarded as one of six major problems for the manufacturing industry, has led to greater demand for energy saving from machine tools. To accomplish such high level energy saving, further study on new elemental, control, and machining technologies has become necessary. To this end, JTEKT has made efforts to achieve significant improvements through development of various technologies and complete evaluation by a JTEKT original "eco-scale". This paper presents an overall picture of our approach to energy saving for machine tools and how this approach will evolve into further technical development.
