Automotive, aeronautics, windmill, tooling industry and bioengineering instruments are causing the spread of applications and ideas in the field of non-conventional manufacturing processes. All the novel proposals imply new mechanical and materials challenges for performing effective manufacturing processes. To this end, new processes involve technical modifications in machines and/or auxiliary devices to achieve other capabilities. Additionally, new approaches result from the combination of simpler ones. There are several terms in: PECM (Pulse Electrochemical Machining), ECM (Electrochemical Machining), EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining), biomachining, electrically-assisted machining, laser-assisted machining, etc. Each of these novel techniques involve the control of operational parameters, modifications in machines and accessories and some proofs of concepts. This Special Issue covers the topics listed in keywords below.
This Special Issue aims the latest advances in metal materials and non-conventional mechanical manufacturing processes. Contributions are welcome from both academic researchers and their industrial peers, dealing with innovating novel non-conventional manufacturing 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. 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.
