Mathematical Model and Simulation of Regrind Chisel Edge for Helical Micro-Drill
Micro-drills are becoming more and more important in precision and micro fabrications. They have been widely used in applications, e.g., precision and micro drilling. In this paper, a novel method is advanced and used for regrinding of chisel edges of helical micro-drills. In this method, a geometric model is established for the chisel edge regrinding. Based on the kinematic relationship of regrinding, the model simplifies machine movement so as to facilitate an easy operation. Computer simulation is applied to the regrinding process of the micro-drills. The results demonstrate that the proposed method is effective in regrinding chisel edges, which allows for a more reasonable distribution of the angles along the chisel edge of a drill, and enhances the drilling performance.
