The manufacturing process, and the material used, creates the capability to produce a functional shape. The interplay between the processing conditions and the materials chemistry will, together, give the material its properties. This will, in some cases, result in homogeneous properties and, sometimes, in textures or directional properties, in addition to local variations of the properties, as the actual processing conditions may vary with the part geometry. New processes, such as Rheocasting, offer cost-effective routes for mass production of complex shapes, representing one end of the manufacturing field. On the other end, we have Hot Isostatic Pressing and Additive manufacturing, capable of short series production and offering a great design freedom. Accordingly, this Special Issue aims to publish papers in the area of manufacturing processes capable of offering design freedom in terms of shape, such as, metals casting, semisolid forming, powder metallurgy, single point incremental sheet metal forming and additive manufacturing. This Special Issue is limited to metallic material, but metal-based composites and nanocomposites are welcome. Particular attention should be given to the interplay between the processing conditions and the actual material properties of the component manufactured, including local variations. The properties include both mechanical properties and thermos-physical properties to encompass all functional properties contribution to the manufactured component performance.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Technologies is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
