Metal forming and forging and are used extensively for the industrial production of high-added-value components using different metal alloys. Continuous research in both production techniques is necessary to understand the mechanisms that govern the transformation of the metal into its final shape, avoid final defects, and predict the final properties of the components.
The aim of this Special Issue is to collect outstanding papers about the above-mentioned processes that can help to solve and understand real industrial problems for better and more robust process design, process monitoring, and control.
Of special interest will be the contributions about the development of new material and the tribological/contact characterization methods ending in advanced numerical models that enable the simulation of complex industrial processes and their understanding. Linked to this, we are also expecting contributions about innovative processes that allow the manufacturing of complex components using conventional and hard to process metals. These new processes could be based on numerical modelling or experimental observations.

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.
