Special Issue "Progress in Precision Machining"
A special issue of Journal of Manufacturing and Materials Processing (ISSN 2504-4494).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 April 2021).
Interests: cutting and abrasive machining, surface integrity aspects; modeling and optimization of manufacturing processes; precision engineering; monitoring and control of machining processes
Interests: precision engineering; diamond and micromachining processes; polishing and precision grinding processes; surface characterization; manufacture of optical components
Precision machining comprises a variety of advanced manufacturing technologies which have developed over the last few decades into flexible, fast, and reliable processes for generating complex high-quality components with functional surfaces and structures. Precision machined parts can be found in products from the automotive, aerospace, and optical industries, as well as medical and communications technologies. In addition to specific high precision machines and advanced tooling, the application of precision machining also requires a fundamental comprehension of processes technology and material behavior as well as metrology and control.
In this Special Issue of JMMP, we are looking for recent findings, which focus on precision machining technologies including their application and associated research fields. Papers will be considered that show significant advancement according to progress and quality of precision processes, necessary machinery and tools, material aspects, as well as associated metrology with respect to surface properties, surface integrity, and process control.
We are interested in contributions that focus on topics such as:
- precision and micro machining, including diamond machining, precision grinding and polishing, EDM, and laser beam machining;
- metrology for high precision characterization of form, structures, and topography of precision machined components;
- Material aspects in precision machining such as surface and subsurface integrity of precision machined hard and difficult-to-cut materials;
- Application of process monitoring for sound and robust precision manufacturing technologies.
