Advanced materials are crucial for the development of many industrial sectors such as aerospace, automotive, energy, etc. These materials show superior mechanical characteristics of strength, hardness, toughness, and durability in relation to conventional materials. However, these materials are also characterized by their complicated casting or forge and low machinability. In addition, the development of new advanced materials requires the use of advanced manufacturing technologies and rigid machine tools. New processes, new cooling systems, tools, and coatings must be investigated to enable the machining of these advanced materials. Machines that apply the processes can be also improved by introducing new components, control approaches, and monitoring and recording systems.
The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight recent advancements related to new processes and machine tools for machining advanced alloys. Machines, processes, assisted processes, and new tools are now in a rapid evolution.

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 1800 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.
