Abstract: This research mainly aims to study and develop a multi-process approach to improve and enhance the machining of brittle materials like glass using a PCD tool. A combined block-EDM and micro-grinding process is proposed where the micro-grinding process is applied to the glass following the block-EDM operation on PCD tool. The intregrated block-EDM and micro-grinding process is conducted in a single setup, which does not involve the taking out of the PCD tool after fabrication and hence can improve the accuracy in the fabrication of micro-features on glass. The research works conducted in this project will be eminently helpful to promote better understanding while implementing this newly developed hybrid process, and to improve its robustness in the field of precision manufacturing. The investigation conducted in this thesis will be certainly supportive for the PCD tool users to understand the importance of choosing fabrication parameters that works in better associations with the glass grinding parameters and to utilize the full effectiveness of the PCD tool for precision finishing of brittle material like glass.
