Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (29 February 2020).
Interests: polymer material conversion technology, thermoplastic injection molding, laser processing, production system optimization and planning.
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Metal Injection molding is actually one of the most complex manufacturing processes for producing metal parts. The quality of products strictly depends on several factors, such as the careful mold design, selection of material and process conditions. How to optimize process parameters is the key issue for improving the mechanical performance of a product towards the expected service conditions. In addition, the minimization of the production waste and energy costs can make injection molding a more sustainable manufacturing process.
This Special Issue provides an excellent opportunity for those who are studying and working with metal injection molded parts and all supporting technologies. Research articles, review articles and communications relating to theory, simulation, processes, properties and applications of metal injection molding are all invited for this Special Issue.

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.
