Manufacturing Processes and Systems

A section of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).

Section Information

The section on Manufacturing Processes and Systems in Materials covers a wide range of manufacturing processes, from traditional methods to more advanced technologies. It emphasizes the importance of selecting the appropriate manufacturing process based on the desired material properties, the complexity of the parts design, and economic factors. Understanding, optimizing, monitoring, controlling, modelling, and simulating these different processes and systems is essential for efficient and cost-effective production, ensuring that materials are processed and converted into finished products with the required quality and functionality.
