Burr in drilling plays an important role on product quality, so analysis the burr size is essential at the final production. This paper presents the application of Taguchi method for survey the burr height and burr thickness by adding ultrasonic vibration to the process. In this paper L18 orthogonal array based on Taguchi techniques was used in the design of experiments. Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used to determination the effect of drilling parameter on burr formation. Influence of cutting speed, feed rate and percentage of SiC particle was investigated in with and without Ultrasonic assisted drilling. Al/SiCp MMC with 5, 15 and 20 wt% of particulate SiC in dry drilling operation with TiN coated drill tools were investigated.
