Industry 4.0 is a further development stage in the organisation and management of the entire manufacturing industry, from embedded systems to cyber-physical systems. In this approach, machines no longer process the products; instead, the products communicate with the machine and tell it what to do.
In this Special Issue, we are keen to publish robust papers discussing any relevant Industry 4.0 approach with a particular focus on welding and additive manufacturing. This can include but is not limited to developments in "welding", "additive manufacturing", "nondestructive testing", "hybrid manufacturing and inspection", "structural integrity", "material evaluation", etc. The key point is that there must be a subsection in the paper to address how the proposed developments can achieve the Industry 4.0 requirements.
