Special Issue "Hard Wear-Resistant Coatings for Cutting Tools"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 March 2024 | Viewed by 3839
We would like to invite you to submit your new research work to the Special Issue on "Hard Wear Resistant Coatings for Cutting Tools".
With the continuing industrial revolution, cutting tools are required to be environmentally benign and economically effective. During machining, the hardness and wear resistance of cutting tools significantly influence machining efficiency and precision. Coating is an effective approach to enable cutting tools to meet increasingly enhanced demands. The combination of tools and coatings is conducive to higher machining efficiency and precision, as well as better thermal properties and longer service life than the original tools. Considerable progress has been made to develop tribologically compatible coatings with exceptional wear resistance and low friction.
This Special Issue is dedicated to the recent experimental or theoretical achivements in the field of hard and wear-resistant coatings for cutting tools. New research papers, and reviews, are welcomed. In particular, topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Hard coatings;
- Coated tools;
- Cutting performance;
- Tribological behaviour;
- Fracture toughness;
- Friction and wear;
- Self-lubricating behavior;
- Oxidation resistance;
- Thermal stability;
- Adhesion between coating and substrate;
- Material characterization;
- New analytical methods;
- Novel deposition technology;
- Modeling and characterization methods of surface;
- Advanced surface modification techniques.

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. 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.
