Drilling Force in High Speed Drilling Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastics (CFRP) Using Half Core Drill
The Composites are difficult machining materials which widely used in aerospace industry due to their excellent mechanical properties. Tool wear and delamination are considered the major concern in manufacture the parts and assembly. The thrust force and torque affect the tool life and delamination mostly. This paper investigated the drilling force and torque of carbon fibred composite with carbide drilling tools and half core drilling tool. The experiments were carried out under air cooling cutting conditions and the drilling force using carbide tool and half core tool were compared and the experimental results indicated that the drilling forces using half core drill were smaller than that of using carbide tool.
