Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues:

Industrial production is undergoing some pragmatic changes. These changes are defined by key enabling technologies, also known as KET, implying a new scenario in our understanding of production.

In this way, production must be adapted to new performance models, where all the elements involved in the production system must improve their role in the best possible way. In other words, the production system must increase its efficiency significantly.

Traditionally, machining processes are a production operation in which efficiency is generally low. Therefore, the search for a high-efficiency machining process is a strategic necessity for the industry.

Moreover, the industry has the necessity to use high-performance materials which require high-efficiency processes in order to improve the overall outcome.

This Special Issue is open to advances in the following two aspects: the improvement of the efficiency of the machining processes and the advancement of the use of complex materials in the machining process, involving the following:

  • An improved, efficient machining process (conventional and non-conventional);
  • A new, high-efficiency machining process;
  • Traditional machining applied to complex materials;
  • New machining processes applied to complex materials;
  • Improved, efficient machining of complex materials;
  • The application of a KET to improve the machining process;
  • New tools, new characterization methods, and tool wear control;
  • An adaptive machining process;
  • Improvement of the performance of the machining process;
  • A hybrid machining process.

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. Applied Sciences 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 2400 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.
