Investigation of chip formation and burr control in PCB fixture hole

Investigation of chip formation and burr control in PCB fixture hole Purpose – This paper aims to analyze their generation mechanism and factors influencing burr generation. The final goal is to use appropriate drill design and drilling process to control the generation of burrs. Design/methodology/approach – The mechanism of burr generation was studied through finite element method (FEM) simulation and drilling experiments. High-speed photography technology and scanning electron microscope (SEM) were used in this study. Findings – High-speed drilling burr is a printed circuit board (PCB) copper foil burr. Within a certain range, the feed speed and burr height is in positive correlation, and decrease in the feeding speed will favor the exit burr. Drill angle influences burr and chisel edge affect significantly, followed by the point angle, and helical angle has little effect. From the perspective of reducing the burr, a smaller chisel edge and smaller point angle should be chosen. Grinding chisel edge is another choice to decrease the burr but also ensures the blade strength. Originality/value – This paper investigates the mechanism of burr generation of PCB fixture hole drilling. The process of burr generation was captured by high-speed camera. The controlling methods of burr generation were illustrated at the end. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Circuit World Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – This paper aims to analyze their generation mechanism and factors influencing burr generation. The final goal is to use appropriate drill design and drilling process to control the generation of burrs. Design/methodology/approach – The mechanism of burr generation was studied through finite element method (FEM) simulation and drilling experiments. High-speed photography technology and scanning electron microscope (SEM) were used in this study. Findings – High-speed drilling burr is a printed circuit board (PCB) copper foil burr. Within a certain range, the feed speed and burr height is in positive correlation, and decrease in the feeding speed will favor the exit burr. Drill angle influences burr and chisel edge affect significantly, followed by the point angle, and helical angle has little effect. From the perspective of reducing the burr, a smaller chisel edge and smaller point angle should be chosen. Grinding chisel edge is another choice to decrease the burr but also ensures the blade strength. Originality/value – This paper investigates the mechanism of burr generation of PCB fixture hole drilling. The process of burr generation was captured by high-speed camera. The controlling methods of burr generation were illustrated at the end.
