Special Issue Information
Manufacturing is rapidly evolving globally amid raising trade tensions, growing economic uncertainty, and increasing awareness of sustainability and the value of data. One of the key changes in manufacturing arises from Industry 4.0, which includes digitalisation and automation of processes, additive manufacturing, applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence in manufacturing, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), digital twin and cyber physical systems. Another key change in manufacturing comes from increasing environmental awareness and sustainability, which includes improving the energy and resource efficiency of manufacturing processes, reduction of plastics, and minimisation of wastes created in the development of new sustainable materials and processes, and life cycle assessment.
The Special Issue is intended to report on the latest advances and innovations in manufacturing technologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Advances and innovations in traditional manufacturing processes
- Additive manufacturing
- Automation and robotics
- Machine learning and artificial intelligence applications in manufacturing
- Sustainable or green manufacturing
- Energy efficiency and optimisation of manufacturing processes
- New sustainable materials and manufacturing processes

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. Technologies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1400 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.
