he exit burrs in the micro-drilling of precision miniature holes are of interest, especially for ductile materials. As burrs from this process can be difficult to remove, it is important to acquire the way of predicting burr types as well as optimal cutting conditions which minimize the burrs. In this paper, an artificial neural network was used for the prediction of burr formation in micro-drilling. First, the influence of cutting conditions including cutting speed, feed and drill diameter on the exit burr characteristics, such as burr size and type, were observed and analyzed. Then, the burr types were classified by using the influential experimental data as input parameters to the neural nets.
