Special Issue "Micro and Nano-Manufacturing"
A special issue of Journal of Manufacturing and Materials Processing (ISSN 2504-4494).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2018).
Micro- and nano-scale manufacturing is gaining more attention due to production miniaturization and customization. High precision and product quality are difficult to achieve at this length scale; thus, a deeper understanding of the processes, development of characterization methods, modeling and simulations, and monitoring are required for the improvement of product quality and mass scale productivity. This Special Issue of JMMP will focus on advances in micro- and nano-scale manufacturing processes and systems that address the aforementioned requirements. Both theoretical and experimental contributions are welcome. Application-oriented novel manufacturing processes and systems are also of interest.
Specific topics of interest at the micro- and nano-scale include, but are not limited to:
- Mechanical, nontraditional, additive, and hybrid manufacturing processes and systems
- Process and system characterization, modeling, and simulations
- Surface texturing, surface integrity and process improvement
- Process monitoring and control
- Measurement and metrology
- Novel product designs and assembly technologies
- Design and fabrication methods for micro-sensors
- Equipment for micro- and nano-scale manufacturing
- Tip-based manufacturing
- Composite manufacturing (CNT, graphenes, nanoparticulates, etc.)
- Use of nano additives and fluids for 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.
