Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 13th International Conference and Exhibition on Laser Metrology, Coordinate Measuring Machine, and Machine Tool Performance (LAMDAMAP 2019 https://www.euspen.eu/events/lamdamap-2019/) will be organized by euspen, drawing together many of the world’s distinguished scientists from all areas of science, engineering, and manufacturing. Advanced machine tool metrology supports superior part production, which enables, understands, and tracks the baseline performance and accuracy of machines. Whilst the trend towards nanometer level surfaces, finishes, and features progresses, the matching of both form and finish coherently in complex parts remains a major challenge. This year, the conference will focus on novel manufacturing technologies and machine tools, new developments in measurement techniques, performance evaluation for machine tools and coordinate measuring machines, roughness and machine tool standards, and metrology in new fabrication techniques, such as additive manufacturing.

The authors of selected high standard research contributions from the conference will be invited to submit their original papers and contributions under the following conference topics, which include, but are not limited to the following:

Novel manufacturing technologies and machine tools

New developments in measurement techniques

Performance evaluation for machine tools and CMMs

Roughness and machine tool standards

Metrology in new fabrication techniques

Robotics in shop-floor gauging

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. Journal of Manufacturing and Materials Processing 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 1000 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.

The capability to produce surfaces in optical quality is of rising prominence in the manufacturing industry. The die and mold industry have to meet rising requirements with regard to the surface finish and geometric precision, to keep pace with technological advances in sectors such as illumination, optical sensors, and fiber technology. This paper focuses on the challenges of developing a sample milling process for optical surface finishes in 53 HRC STAVAX stainless steel. Besides the expected process and tooling parameter variations, three prominent material analytics methods were used to evaluate all experiments. The tool wear was analyzed and monitored via SEM and EDS. To verify the milling process capabilities, a sample was produced through manual polishing and then analyzed for material faults via nanoindentation and BSE analysis. The finished results were measured for their surface roughness via bifocal laser microscopy and for their topography SEM. In the practical application, a surface roughness Ra in the single digit nano-meter range was achieved. A stable finishing process was achieved at high rotational speed with feed rates up to 750 mm/min. A practical cleaning solution with the use of a mild lye was found. Full article
