Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The dominant trend in the global industry is the search for new technological solutions that, on the one hand, ensure reduced consumption of materials, energy, and harmful emissions and, on the other, provide highly efficient technologies, allowing the production of high-quality machine parts. This trend is particularly evident in the area of forming processes for metals and metal alloys, where great progress has recently been made. The development of new metalworking techniques can practically be observed in all fields of forming, and it is focused on manufacturing finished and semifinished products with high strength and accuracy and with reduced machining allowance at the same time. Today, metal working is not only about forming materials to the required shape but also about shaping the structure and properties of materials through appropriately designed processes. All this is aimed at reducing manufacturing costs, improving product quality and strength, and obtaining the desired functional characteristics of products.

This Special Issue is an attempt at reporting recent findings in the field of metal working, from forming processes and materials engineering to the optimization of manufacturing processes. The primary objective of the Materials Special Issue is to present the latest achievements in forming metals and metal alloys and to indicate trends in the development of metalworking processes.

The upcoming Special Issue of Materials aims to present new developments in forming metals and metal alloys. We are pleased to invite you to submit research papers and reviews related to the latest achievements and developments in the forming of metals and metal alloys. All comments and suggestions for the Special Issue are welcome.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
