Review on Material Removal Technology of Soda-Lime Glass Material


Objective: To provide comprehensive literature survey of machining process in soda lime glass with reference to the conventional and non-conventional material removal process. Methods/Statistical Analysis: For more convenient understanding, the various processes, research and advanced progress in this field is presenting in table format. The ascending pyramid diagram shows progress of advanced researches on soda lime glass machining. The percent contribution of machining processes has been calculated and explained in a pie chart. Findings: There are totally eight machining processes used by various researchers to treat the soda lime glass. From which, Laser Machining Process and Electrochemical Discharge Machining Process showing highest contribution i.e. 22% are because of its advanced and wide range of applications in various fields. Whereas 6% contribution is observed for Abrasive Jet Machining process and micro grinding process, which is used at very low scale, it may be due to an extensive range of limitations. Application/Improvement: The present study is a first attempt towards the literature review on soda lime glass material. This review may be helpful to classify and select the most significant machining method to work with soda lime glass material.
