The development of precision and ultra-precision manufacturing processes results from a growing demand for reduced mass and dimensions of manufactured products of the highest surface quality and dimensional accuracy, while reducing production costs. Today, the main application area of these techniques involves the production of elements made of titanium alloys and stainless steels, intended for the biomedical industry, such as bone and joint implants and parts for the neurovascular system. These technologies are also used in the production of microelectrodes, as well as microforms from hardened alloy steels and elements of bio-microelectromechanical systems (bio-MEMS). The extreme requirement towards a surface quality constitutes the fundamental objective of precision and ultra-precision manufacturing processes. Therefore, the recognition of a specific physical phenomenon occurring during these techniques, as well as the selection of input parameters enabling simultaneous improvement of a machined surface quality, together with a process stability and tool life, are of high scientific importance.
This Special Issue provides an excellent opportunity for researchers who are studying and working in the area of precision and ultraprecision manufacturing techniques.
It is our pleasure to invite you to submit original research papers, short communications or state-of-the-art reviews which are within the scope of this Special Issue. Contributions can range from novel approaches in precision and ultraprecision manufacturing, the analysis and modeling of process mechanics, and measurements of physical phenomena during manufacturing processes to evaluation of surface integrity.

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.
