Abstract: The usage of chemical treated toughened glass has steadily increased especially for electronic panel display devices. Due to the ion-exchange process throughout the surface treatment phase has create six to eight times tougher and crack resistance as compare to normal float glass. Owing to these, the subsequent manufacturing process such as conventional drilling is almost impossible for this toughened glass. Considering these fact, in this paper feasibility study on the effectiveness of applying ultrasonic frequency during the drilling process toward holes’ quality were investigated. Sets of experimental investigation of ultrasonic assisted drilling with varying speed and feed rate were performed to evaluate the burr formation and the generated thrust force magnitude. From the experimental results, it was found that the areas of burr formation and the thrust force magnitude were dependent with the drilling parameter. It also can be noted that the present of the ultrasonic vibration show significant improvement on the holes’ performance. By incorporating the drilling process with an ultrasonic vibration able to decreases the magnitude of thrust force and increases the effectiveness of chip evacuation process due to the intermittent cutting process. The outcome from this work serve as a basis for advancing the technology related to micro machining of chemical treated toughened glass.
