Nickel and titanium alloys are high-temperature resistant alloys, essential in many applications. Gas turbines, fuel nozzles, heat treating fixtures, and furnace muffles are some examples where these materials must stand up to high heat, extreme oxidation potential, and cycling. However, these materials are also characterized by their low machinability. With the aim of dealing with this drawback, new machining and finishing processes are being developed. They enable optimized component shapes, surface finishing and surface integrity for specific applications.
Problems related to machining of components of nickel and titanium alloys are far from being solved. New cooling systems, tools and tool’s coatings, new abrasive processes and strategies are being investigated deeply. In addition, friendly and sustainable processes are including in the workshops.
The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight recent advancements related to machining and finishing of nickel and titanium based alloys mainly for aeroengine components. Machines, processes, assisted processes and new tools are now in a rapid evolution.

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. 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 1200 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.
