Abstract This research work attempts to study the most prominent factor of the drilling operations performed on different thicknesses of biaxial glass fibre reinforced with graphene platelet nanopowder and epoxy composite using three different drills. Damages are induced in the workpieces to analyse the effect of changed cutting parameters and different tool materials for varied thicknesses of the plates during the drilling process. The resultant drilled hole exhibited surface irregularities that are measured using SURFCOM 1400G. The circularity deviations of the holes are measured using a coordinate measuring machine. Image-processing technique is used to calculate the area of maximum diameter of the damaged zone. Using these data, delamination at entry and exit is calculated. Utilizing response surface methodology and grey relational analysis, the varied operations are carried out and analysed with different tool materials for common cutting parameters. It is found that the lesser thickness workpiece with selected HSS drill under high speed and low feed rate is the best variable option.
