Special Issue "New Frontiers in Magnetic Polishing and Electrochemical Technology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2022.
Interests: 1. Magnetic abrasive finishing: this research includes equipment designs, abrasive characteristics, machining methods and control algorithms; 2. Abrasive flow machining: this research includes equipment and fixture designs, abrasive characteristics, machining methods and control algorithms; 3. Micro hole polishing: this research includes equipment and fixture designs, polishing method developments; 4. Electrical discharge machining: this research includes lateral electrode designs, helical electrode design and machining process, dielectric characteristics in EDM
Interests: electrochemical machining (ECM); electrical discharge machining (EDM); ultrasonic machining (USM); micromachining; array and batch processing; mold design and multiple physical simulation analysis for ECM; metal surface treatment, R&D of insulating materials; superalloy machining; non-conductor hard and brittle material processing; computer-integrated intelligent manufacturing
Some important components, such as turbine blades, hydraulic valves, inject nozzles, cooling channels, etc., provide beneficial properties—high mechanical strength, high temperature withstanding ability and good wear resistance—to apply in the precision industry; however, these components are not easy to make using traditional methods. Electrochemical technology and magnetic polishing are nontraditional means that can manufacture or finish these elements effectively by discharge erosion, electrolysis or magnetic abrasive polish. The above technologies can create self-sharpening, self-adaptability and self-controllability capabilities to remove material, deteriorated layers or micro cracks from workpieces and easily obtain precise and complex elements.
In recent years, many kinds of magnetic polishing and electrochemical technology have been developed via machining equipment, cutting tools and control methods in order to obtain high quality products, therefore, equipment functions, tool characteristics and control algorithms have likewise been widely studied in the past few decades. Moreover, machine learning in these technologies has also been investigated extensively due to great improvement in equipment performance and mass production of precision elements, especially micro elements and fine structures, which are easily made by the wisdom learning system.
This Special Issue welcomes novel processing research submissions, such as miniaturization, precision, composite, intelligent, multiple physical coupling, simulation analysis, difficult-to-machine appearance and inner hole feature processing, new material processing technology, etc. We hope that experts and scholars can contribute their research to this Special Issue. Thanks a lot.
