Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Machining with pico-precision is required in virtually every industry, including aeronautics, medicine, dentistry, fluid mechanics, professional sports, and technology. Despite this, there is a growing demand for greater levels of pico-precision in the medical business as a result of the smaller and more intricate elements. However, the challenges associated with machining towards pico-precision need to be critically reviewed, foresight debated, and systematically investigated in order to develop the scientific understanding and enablement technology necessary to further achieve rapid and economical precision engineering output in accordance with expectations.

This Special Issue aims to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present and review the state-of-the-art development, foremost challenges, and visions in high-precision engineering towards pico-precision.

In this Special Issue, we seek papers on all kinds of machining processes where extreme levels of precision are required. Research works can include but are not limited to any branch of High-speed machining, Ultrasonic machining, Hybrid machining processes, ultraprecision machining, and machining of biomedical implants. Original research papers and review articles are all welcome.

Possible topics within this scope include but are not limited to:

  • Theoretical foundations and framework for working towards pico-precision;
  • Modeling and analysis: high precision and high accuracy;
  • Fundamental mechanisms in the machining of hard and brittle materials;
  • High-speed machining of hard and brittle materials;
  • Ultrasonic machining of hard and brittle materials;
  • Machining for biomedical implants, tissue engineering, and human/animal bone;
  • Hybrid processes (physical–chemical–optical-nano-processes) and beyond;
  • Advanced modeling and simulations for pico-precision;
  • Design of future generation of ultraprecision machines and machining systems;
  • Novel and innovative ultraprecision machining process development;
  • Research and industrial case studies.

The effect of the water pressure, traverse speed, and abrasive feed rate on the circularity, cylindricity, kerf taper, and surface roughness of holes produced by abrasive waterjet machining (AWJM) of a carbon-fibre-reinforced polymer (CFRP) composite was investigated in the current study. It was found that the circularity deviation decreased as the water pressure was increased. Cylindricity was affected by all three parameters, although the abrasive feed rate caused the largest deviations as it increased. The surface roughness was affected by all three, but a clear connection was not able to be concluded. The kerf taper ratio reduced with an increase in water pressure, while it increased with an increase in the abrasive feed rate and an increase in the traverse speed. To obtain optimum results, the water pressure should be increased, the traverse speed should be decreased, and the abrasive feed rate can remain constant but is recommended to be slightly reduced.
