Carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) materials are an important class of advanced materials that are used in various applications due to their high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent performance characteristics. The machining of CFRP is an essential process for shaping and finishing these materials, and it requires specialized tools and techniques to achieve good results. Effective machining of CFRP is crucial for ensuring the quality and performance of the finished products, as well as for reducing production costs and increasing efficiency. In this study, different aspects of CFRP machining from airborne dust generation and vacuuming system to reduce the presence of dust and improve the suction performance to parameter selection for drilling and edge trimming operations for machining perfection is examined. Machining parameter and their effect on final product quality is investigated to oversee the correlation between final product quality and the selected parameters. Furthermore, image processing model which is a useful approach for assessing the machining quality of drilling CFRP, as it allows for the automatic inspection and analysis of the surface finish and dimensional accuracy of the drilled holes is developed. The importance of CFRP materials and the effective machining process of these materials cannot be overstated, and the use of image processing for quality assessment is proven to be an important tool for optimizing the machining process and achieving high-quality results.
