Special Issue "Additive Manufacturing and Device Applications"
A special issue of Journal of Manufacturing and Materials Processing (ISSN 2504-4494).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2020).
Interests: development of additive manufacturing systems (e.g., nanoscale 3D printer, aerodynamically focused nanoparticle (AFN) printing, electrospinning, etc.); design and fabrication of sensors; actuators and smart structures by additive manufacturing
Recent developments in additive manufacturing (AM) are leading to a vast volume of devices and products manufactured by conventional or advanced AM techniques, leveraging their engineering and scientific applications. Examples include aerospace, automobile, electronic devices, biomedical systems, sensors, actuators, robots, energy devices, sporting and consumer goods, etc. In order to drive further advancements of AM and its device applications, numerous efforts have received increasing research attention on the development of a new AM technique, functional printing materials/printed structures, and the improvement of established methods, with thorough evaluations of mechanical, electrical or chemical performances of the manufactured devices by AM.
This Special Issue of JMMP will focus on (but not be limited to) the following topics related to AM and the associated devices and applications:
- New AM processes and techniques;
- Process control, monitoring, and optimization;
- Improvement of an established AM technique;
- Functional printing materials and printed structures;
- Devices manufactured by AM for a novel application;
- Evaluations of mechanical, electrical or chemical performances of the devices manufactured by AM.

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 1400 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.
