Optimization of drilling operation of CFRP composite and hybrid stacks (e.g. Ti/CFRP stacks), by optimizing process inputs (e.g. cutting tools, drilling cycle, process parameters, innovative cooling methods, etc. ) and by integrating new monitoring sol

Advances made in LOCOMACHS

This will allow for one-shot drilling of hybrid stacks, eliminating currently existing time-consuming intermediate steps. The main benefit of this task is the optimization of one-shot drilling of stacks that will eliminate intermediate operations of dr
