High-efficient machining, which means to machine a part in the least amount of time, is the most effective tool to improve productivity. In this study, a new feed optimization method based on virtual manufacturing was proposed to realize the high-efficient machining in turning process through the cutting power regulation. The cutting area was evaluated by using the Boolean intersection operation between the cutting tool and workpiece. And the cutting force and power were predicted from the cutting parameters such as feed, depth of cut, spindle speed, specific cutting force, and so on. Especially, the reliability of the proposed optimization method was validated by comparing the predicted and measured cutting forces. The simulation results showed that the proposed optimization method could effectively enhance the productivity in turning process.
