Abstract: Abrasive Jet Machining (AJM) is a promising unconventional modern machining process used to machine hard and brittle materials. This paper focuses on machining of borosilicate-glass work piece with various grits of zircon abrasives using normal and fluidised bed mixing chamber based AJM setups. The normal AJM setup is first designed and fabricated to conduct the experiments according to the Box-Behnken design of response surface methodology. Again, some modifications are made in the existing normal mixed chamber to fabricate the fluidized bed mixing chamber based AJM setup and experiments are carried out with the same input parameters on both the AJM setups. The SEM micrograph analysis is performed to study the impact-mechanism and crack-propagation due to AJM.
