Composite material in general, and metal matrix composites in particular, have been a main topic in research for the last 15 years. Metal matrix composites (MMC) have been found to be useful in a number of engineering applications and particle reinforced aluminum MMCs have received considerable attention due to their excellent engineering properties like high strength to weight ratio, high toughness, high impact strength etc. But these materials are generally regarded as extremely difficult to machine, because of the abrasive characteristics of the reinforced particulates. It is also acknowledged that their machining behavior is not fully understood. The work reviewed here investigated the drilling parameters like feed rate, drilling tool and its geometry, cutting speed and other parameters like influence of coolants, heat treatment etc.
