Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Steel parts are key elements in most industrially-manufactured mechanical engineering products, e.g., in automotive or power generation. The manufacturing of these parts needs to comply with increasing economical, ecological, and quality demands. The latter includes dimensional and shape accuracy, surface topography, surface and subsurface integrity, as well as bulk material properties with regard to the steel material to be processed along the value adding chain. In this Special Issue of Materials, current research findings are going to be reported which focus on individual or subsequent manufacturing processes or steps throughout the manufacturing sequence. The range of considered processes covers primary shaping, forming, cutting and abrasive machining, as well as additive and hybrid (additive combined with subtractive) processes, heat treatment, thermochemical treatment, and mechanical treatment, focusing on steels. Papers will be considered that show significant improvements with clear regard to steel material characteristics/properties achieved by the abovementioned processes and process combinations.

We are particularly interested in (but not limited to) contributions that focus on topics such as:

  • Primary shaping, forming and machining of steels;
  • Additive and hybrid processes for steel parts;
  • Impact of processing conditions on steel material properties;
  • Steel material modifications due to process-induced material loads;
  • Size effects in steel processing;
  • Steel material properties on different scales;
  • Subsequent processes and their impact on steel material properties;
  • Surface, subsurface as well as bulk material properties due to steel processing steps and sequences;
  • Materials-oriented manufacturing of steel parts.

Multiscale Material Characterization Based on Single Particle Impact Utilizing Particle-Oriented Peening and Single-Impact Peening

If conventional methods are used, the development of new structural materials is experience-based, but still intensive in terms of materials, time and cost. As part of the development of a new method for material development and characterization, particle-oriented peening is used in this work. By means of samples of different sizes—but matching microstructures (100Cr6 (AISI 52100), five different material states)—it is examined whether the quantities determined on microscopic samples can be transferred to macroscopic samples. Therefore, peening processes with matching peening parameters but different deformation related aims are compared. While the particle-oriented peening is used to deform the microscopic samples (d = 0.8 mm), the new method of single-impact peening is used to deform the macroscopic samples. For the cross-scale comparison, values characterizing the plastic material deformation (∆l and rf, rc) are used as well as the particle velocities after the impact influenced by the elasto-plastic material properties. It could be shown that the highly dynamic (material) behavior is comparable in both dimensions. For the future examination of new (unknown) material states it is therefore conceivable to make predictions regarding their material behavior and later on regarding their material properties on the basis of particle-oriented peening of quickly generated microscopic samples e.g., from drop-on-demand processes.

Recently, there is growing interest in optimisation of finishing process thanks to the technologies to follow online the wear of cutting tools. In the present paper, one of the cheapest and simplest non-contact methodologies is described in detail and investigated with robustness evaluation. To simulate the finishing operation of a die, in this study, two cavities were designed in AISI H13 steel. Different inserts corresponding to PVD-(Ti,Al)N coated cemented carbide tool were tested. The described methodology is easy to be applied in manufacturing cutting machining with the opportunity to be implemented on machining processes to follow reasonably wear process of cutting tools.
