Abstract: Composite material parts are typically laid out in near-net-shape, i.e., very close to the finished product configuration. However, further machining processes are often required to meet dimensional and tolerance requirements. Drilling, edge trimming and slotting are the main cutting processes employed for carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) composite materials. In particular, drilling stands out as the most widespread machining process of CFRP composite parts, chiefly in the aerospace industrial sector, du…
