Structural parts made of composites have frequently to be drilled in the industry. However, little is now about the interacting conditions between the drill tool and material, which may be multi-type and multi-size. Delamination free in drilling different fiber reinforced composites is the main objective of present paper. Therefore the influence of drilling and materials variables thrust force and delamination of GFRP composite was investigated experimentally. Drilling variables are cutting speed and feed; material variable is fiber orientation. Acoustic Emission sensing was employed for online detection of composite damage induced by drilling. This paper addresses an application of wavelet-based signal processing technique on a composite during drilling. The wavelet methodology is introduced and procedure of wavelet-based acoustic emission (AE) analysis methods is demonstrated. Result shows Acoustic Emission analysis by wavelet method can monitor damage mechanism in drilling of composites.
