Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 18th International Conference, "Research and Development in Mechanical Industry" (RaDMI-2018) (Web site: http://www.radmi.org/), will be held 13–16 September, 2018, in Vrnjačka Banja (Serbia), and is organized by the publishing house "SaTCIP" Publisher Ltd. from Vrnjačka Banja (Serbia).

More than 70 participants from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Montenegro, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, Ukraine, and others, have applied to the conference.

All papers will be printed in the proceedings in hard copy and on CD-ROM in an electronic format.

All original and research papers from the 18th International Conference RaDMI-2018, which successfully pass the review process, will be published in the journal Machines (ISSN 2075-1702) (Website: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/machines/) in this Special Issue, 31 March 2019. Machines is indexed in the following citation databases: Scopus from Elsevier (Website: https://www.scopus.com/), ESCI (Emerging Sources Citation Index) as part of WoS (Web of Science) from Clarivate Analytics Corp. (Website: https://www.clarivate.com/products/web-of-science/), INSPEC from IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology) (Website: http://www.theiet.org/resources/inspec/), GS (Google Scholar) (Website: http://scholar.google.com/), etc.

This Special Issue aims to bring together papers that report on recent advances and challenges in addressing problems and designing new solutions for the improvements of tools, equipments, and technologies in manufacturing engineering. Original contribution papers are expected with contents that present successful solutions to new problems in manufacturing systems. We believe that this Special Issue will be useful and informative to both researchers and practitioners. We also hope to deliver readers promising new ideas and directions for future developments in the field of manufacturing engineering.

Suitable topics for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Research and development of manufacturing systems;
  • Tools, equipments and technologies in manufacturing engineering;
  • New materials and product design;
  • Tribology;
  • Maintenance and effectiveness of technical systems;
  • Quality management, sustainable development and management in mechanical engineering;
  • Application of information technologies and electronics in mechanical engineering.
