Surface Quality and Dust Analysis in High Speed Trimming of CFRP
In this work, high speed trimming of a multi directional carbon fiber reinforced plastic using a tungsten carbide burr tool is studied. The influence of the machining parameters on both the dust size and surface quality is investigated. A high percentage of dust is found under the theoretical chip size and the surface quality is found to be affected by the cutting parameters. The percentage of inhaled dust reaching the pulmonary alveoli is quantified and found to be very high, it is also found that this percentage is affected by the cutting conditions.
