Energy consumption in machining processes has become a problem for today's manufacturing industry. The use of neural networks and optimization algorithms for modeling and prediction of consumption as a function of the cut-off parameters in processes of this type has aroused the interest of research groups. The present work used artificial neural networks (ANN) to predict the energy consumption of a Leadwell V-40iT® five-axis CNC machining center, based on experimental data obtained through a factorial experimental design 53. ANN was programed in Matlab®. From the study was concluded that the depth per pass (Ap) is the variable that has the most influence on the prediction model of energy consumption with a 77% of relative importance, while the feed rate is the least relevant with 9% of importance.
