Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Product measurement, quality control and geometric inspection are very critical and labor-intensive stages in the industrial product life cycle and, as such, contribute significantly to the increase in manufacturing costs. The purpose of this special issue is to present new research advances on the applications of high-resolution 3D optical digitizers for the geometric product verification. All kinds of applications of 3D scanning to geometric inspection issues of industrial products are therefore welcome. We expect contributions focusing on different aspects in this field, from experimental to algorithmic and methodological. Potential topics of selected contributions include, but are not limited to: On-line control of industrial product by 3D high-resolution optical digitizers; 3D high-density measurements of industrial products and data processing methodologies for quality control and geometric inspection of industrial products; Feature recognition for geometric inspection; Geometric models for product tolerancing; Methodologies for automatic geometric inspection of industrial products; Computer-aided inspection; Statistical process control; Augmented Reality Tools for the representation of product geometric deviations.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.
