This chapter presents the basics of drilling of polymeric matrix composites (PMCs). PMCs are becoming widely used in the manufacturing of products where a high mechanical strength must be accompanied by a low weight. However, the machining of PMCs implies coping with problems that are not encountered when machining other materials. Drilling is a particularly critical operation for PMCs laminates because the large concentrated forces generated can lead to widespread damage. This damage causes aesthetic problems but, more importantly, may compromise the mechanical properties of the finished part.

Abstract

This chapter presents the basics of drilling of polymeric matrix composites (PMCs). PMCs are becoming widely used in the manufacturing of products where a high mechanical strength must be accompanied by a low weight. However, the machining of PMCs implies coping with problems that are not encountered when machining other materials. Drilling is a particularly critical operation for PMCs laminates because the large concentrated forces generated can lead to widespread damage. This damage causes aesthetic problems but, more importantly, may compromise the mechanical properties of the finished part.
