Comprehensive Review on Drilling of Multimaterials Stacks

Abstract : This paper reviews the challenges during drilling of composite, titanium, and aluminium stacks. The machinability aspects of these three material stacks commonly used in aerospace applications are reviewed individually based on influence of drill material, drill geometries, and drilling parameters. Composite material requires high speed and low feed rate, drilling titanium requires low speed and high feed rate whereas drilling aluminium requires a balance between speed to feed rate. The review reports critical results and gap in the literature for composite, titanium and aluminium. Drilling of multimaterial stacks require a compromise between many parameters. The problems and solutions related to drilling of multimaterial stacks are discussed and the directions in which the research on drilling of multimaterials may be carried out are suggested in this paper.
