Production engineering is under constant pressure to satisfy demands for improved productivity while simultaneously achieving high workpiece quality. In addition, environmental awareness is a growing concern to address. New technologies represent new opportunities for increased productivity. This paper shows how the combination of speed stroke grinding and high speed machining can boost both process performance and workpiece quality. Theoretical consideration is validated by experiments and analyzed regarding energetic and environmental aspects. Only a thorough choice of process parameters leads to high process sustainability. Furthermore, lower tensile stresses can positively leverage increased manufacturing effort to optimize the overall product life cycle.
