Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hot stamping technology can improve the formability of materials and obtain parts with high strength and good shape accuracy. Driven by the improved need for automobile body lightweight, hot stamping technology has seen significant new developments in recent years. This Special Issue focuses on the application of new materials, including steel and alloy materials, new die technologies, and new forming and simulation technologies in the field of hot stamping; the application of hot stamping technology in light alloys, such as aluminum alloys, magnesium alloys, and titanium alloys; the application of 2GPa high-strength steel and methods to avoid hydrogen-induced delayed fracture of high-strength steel; new coating development technology; studies on friction and wear behavior in hot stamping processes; and application of new heat treatment technology in the hot stamping field. In addition to the processing of traditional body safety parts, such as anti-collision beam, B-pillar, and so on, we expect hot stamping technology to be used in the processing of new types of parts, such as new energy vehicle battery cases, and so on. Our goal is for this Special Issue to promote the exchange of new ideas on hot stamping technology among researchers and further improve the application of this technology.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
