Abstract—The drilling operation is considered by manufacturers as complex and difficult process (rapid wear of the cutting edge as well as problems of chip evacuation). Faced with these failures, manufacturers have shifted in recent years towards the drilling process assisted by forced vibrations. This method consists to add an axial oscillation with a low frequency to the classical feed movement of the drill so as to ensure good fragmentation and better chip evacuation.
