Project: Vibration-assisted drilling of FRP and FRP-Metall-Stacks using special cooling/lubrication strategies

The purpose of the »VibroCool« project is a system and process development for an advanced drilling technology of fibre-reinforced plastics (FRPs) and FRP-Metal-Stacks. Vibration assisted machining, the use of special cooling respectively lubrication strategies (two channel feed through of aerosol and liquid CO2) and optimized polycrystal-line diamond drills will be combined to reach the highest possible increase in cutting performance. For the realiza-tion of the planned technology chosen system components as well as their interfaces will be developed and inte-grated within a sophisticated machine tool. Parallel process technological investigation will guarantee an utilisa-tion of the technological potential of the »VibroCool«-technology. In that way »VibroCool« will contribute to a strengthening of the European composite industry.
