Edge chipping is a phenomenon commonly observed during the machining of ceramic material. Characterization of edge chipping, both in macro and in micro scale, and correlating its formation to machining parameters form a basis for developing new and innovative technologies for controlling in machining induced damage. An experimental-based study using glass ceramic material is performed. Three types of edge chipping are identified. The SEM-sterephotography method and the finite element method are used to evaluate the edge chipping effect under a set of machining conditions. Significant findings are obtained and guidelines for controlling edge chipping during machining are suggested.
