Abstract: The application of the sustainable development principles in the machinery building industry, in Romania, during the transition period is necessary and opportune. This is the reason why the assignation of some priority domains, as part of the different industrial branches is benefice to the national programs meant for research orientation and for the allocation of resources. In the present paper is presented, in an extent background, the sustainable development concept and the particularly elements that characterized the machine tools building industry which is a remarkable share component in economy field. There are pointed out some solutions of approaching the specific activities of the machine tools building and usage. The paper approaches the problem of the treble dimensioning of the working machines functions – technical, economical, and ecological – and to establish an optimal relation between these. There is prefigured a new orientation for the machine tools research – design activity, in the relation to the life cycle of these, in the prospect of the sustainable used of the resources.

Brief Biography of the Speaker: Badea Lepadatescu is currently an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Technological Engineering and Industrial Management of Transylvania University of Brasov, Romania. He obtained his doctoral degree in 1998 in the area of machining through superfinishing process. After he graduated he worked five years as design engineer at Roman truck factory in the field of manufacturing processes where he designed many devices and special machine tools especially for superfinishing process. Started on 1982 he worked as research engineer at Transylvania University of Brasov, and after 1997 he is teaching at Department of Manufacturing Engineering. His main academic interests include Tolerance and Dimensional Control, Manufacturing Engineering Processes, Automation Processes, and Renewable Energy Sources. The research accomplishments are reflected through publications in a five books and authored or co-authored over 120 papers published at international conferences. He has extensive experience in both experimental and theoretical research work having more than 50 contracts with factories to design and produce machine tools for machining processes. Also in the field of Renewable Energy Sources together with a team he made two wind turbines, one with horizontal axis for taking water, and one with vertical axis to produce electric energy. He has been speaker to international conferences, has moderated forums, organized symposia, workshops and sessions at major international conferences.
