Polycrystalline diamond (PCD) drills are commonly employed in carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) drilling to satisfy hole quality conditions with an acceptable tool life and productivity. Despite their common use in industry, only a small number of studies have been reported on drilling CFRPs with PCD drills. In this study, drilling performances of three different PCD drill designs are investigated experimentally using thrust force, torque, and hole exit quality measurements. Results show that work material properties, drilling conditions, and drill design should all be considered together during the selection of process parameters, and the relationships among these factors are quite complex.

Karpat, Y.; Bahtiyar O. (Elsevier, 2015)As a result of increased use of CFRPs in the aerospace industry, the machining of CFRPs has been studied extensively. The majority of these studies consider drilling of CFRPs, since it is the most common process in the ...
Karpat, Y.; Bahtiyar, O. (Elsevier B.V., 2016)Carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRPs) are widely used in the aerospace industry due to their light weight, high strength, and low thermal conductivity. Drilling is a critical process that affects the quality of CFRP ...
Tool geometry based prediction of critical thrust force while drilling carbon fiber reinforced polymers Karpat, Y.; Bahtiyar O. (Shanghai University Press, 2015)Carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRPs) are known to be difficult to cut due to the abrasive nature of carbon fibers and the low thermal conductivity of the polymer matrix. Polycrystalline diamond (PCD) drills are commonly ...
