Special Issue "Tribology in Manufacturing Process"
A special issue of Lubricants (ISSN 2075-4442).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2016).
Interests: metal forming; process tribology; surface engineering; micro/meso manufacturing
In the precise manufacturing of metal parts, especially for hard materials, the tribological requirements on workpiece materials and tool materials are extremely high and critical. The improvement in process tribology also helps in tool lifetime and product surface quality improvements. Additionally, in order to maintain the sustainability of manufacturing sector, development of green manufacturing processes is essential and inevitable. For the realization of future green manufacturing, process tribology improvement is playing an important role in the contribution toward manufacturing sustainability.
There are numerous research teams over the world making effort in process tribology advancement and lubricant development. In order to speed up the pace of process tribology advancement, a Special Issue is planned to gather relevant research and study together so that researchers can be benefited for their investigations. The topics of papers in this issue include, but not limit to,
- Friction, lubrication and wear phenomena
- New lubricants, tool materials, coatings and surface engineering
- Tribological effects on process modeling and applied plasticity
- Environmental issues: new user- and- environmental friendly lubricants and coatings
- Metal forming, machining, joining and other processes
