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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
