Precision and ultra-precision parts are key elements in most industrially-manufactured mechanical engineering products, e.g., in automotive, power generation or optical industries. The manufacturing of these parts needs to comply with economical, ecological, and, in particular, high quality demands. The latter includes dimensional and shape accuracy, as well as surface topography and surface integrity with regard to the material to be processed. In this Special Issue of JMMP, current research findings are going to be reported, which focus on individual or subsequent manufacturing processes or steps throughout the manufacturing sequence. The range of considered processes covers cutting and abrasive rough and fine machining, as well as additive and hybrid (additive combined with subtractive) processes focusing on metals, as well as hard and brittle materials. Papers will be considered that show significant improvements with clear regard to quality aspects (precision, surface, surface integrity) achieved by the above mentioned processes and process combinations.
We are interested in contributions that focus on topics such as:
precision and ultra-precision machining of metals and hard and difficult-to-cut materials,
additive and hybrid processes for metal parts,
impact of tools and fluid supply on part quality,
material modifications due to process induced material loads,
sustainable, environmentally sound precision manufacturing processes,
subsequent finishing operations for precision parts,
surface and subsurface integrity of ground parts,
materials oriented manufacturing.

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.
