Special Issue "Advances in Process Machine Interactions"
A special issue of Machines (ISSN 2075-1702).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2017).
Interests: intelligent spindles; machine tool dynamics; cutting process monitoring and control; fault diagnosis of rotating machinery
In order to improve product quality and lower production costs, machine tools are continually being improved with respect to their rotating speed, acceleration, and process force. Moreover, processes are also continually undergoing optimization. However, the machine and the process are not independent of each other. The continuity of interaction, i.e., the continuous and mutual influence exerted by both machine and process, results in the unpredictable effects on workpieces. It has been considered necessary to treat processes and machine structures in an integrated way, thereby overcoming the widespread independent treatment of such systems.
This Special Issue aims to bring together papers that report recent advances and challenges in addressing problems and finding new solutions for process machine interactions. With this call for papers, we hope to deliver readers promising new ideas and directions for future developments in this area. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Process modeling and simulation in cutting, grinding and forming operations.
- Machine tool modeling, including spindles, feed drives, guideways, etc.
- Virtual machining: simulation/optimization of machining process in virtual environment.
- Chatter prediction, detection and control/suppression.
- Process planning of machining operations.
- Machining process monitoring and control, including tool wear/breakage, chatter, collision, temperatures/thermal error, balancing state, etc.
- Experimental and industrial applications.

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. Machines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
