Machining of Glass Materials: An Overview

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Being hard and brittle, glassGlassis considered one of the very difficult-to-cut materials. This chapter is primarily concerned about the glass types, properties, and applications as well as associated difficulties in their machining. Following that, this chapter explores various conventional and nonconventional technologies available till today for machining of glass material. Furthermore, it also sheds light on cutting mechanisms of glass materials for both single and multiple cutting edge tools in case of conventional machining. Aspects of tool wear and surface/subsurface damage relevant to glass machining are also discussed.
