With the ongoing fourth industrial revolution, digital technologies, such as the Internet of Things, artificial intelligent, machine learning, cloud computing, big data and analytics, remote sensing, virtual reality, digital modelling, etc., have been largely used to digitalize manufacturing. In the meantime, manufacturing processes themselves are also advancing in terms of process development, finite element modelling, automation, process monitoring, etc. This Special Issue aims to mainly focus on the field of advanced manufacturing technologies, including the development of manufacturing processes, simulations, applications of digital technologies in manufacturing, etc.
We hope that this Special Issue provides a platform for leading experts in advanced manufacturing technologies to communicate and network, potentially for research exchange and collaborations. In particular, the topics of interest in this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:
- Advanced joining technologies.
- Advanced forming technologies.
- Subtractive manufacturing, including CNC, laser cutting, water jet cutting, EDM, etc.
- Additive manufacturing.
- Simulation of manufacturing processes.
- Computer-integrated manufacturing.
- Application of AI in advanced manufacturing.
- Application of sensors in digitalization of manufacturing.

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. Coatings 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 2600 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.
