Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies have been utilized in rapid and cost-effective fabrication processes. With its improved high resolution and precision, AM is becoming an increasingly promising fabrication method for micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), including sensors, actuators, structures, medical devices, robots, and more. In addition, the combination of conventional microfabrication and AM processes can create more sophisticated MEMS devices, e.g., embedded MEMS. AM processes have brought important benefits to MEMS in terms of design freedom and selection of materials for consideration of the sustainability of MEMS (or green MEMS). Therefore, more optimal developments of MEMS can be expected via integrated design and AM along with material selection.

This Special Issue on “Integrated Design and Fabrication of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems with Additive Manufacturing” aims to present both original contributions and comprehensive reviews dealing with various design, material selection, and AM and manufacturing processes suitable for MEMS. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Additive manufacturing for microstructures
  • Additive manufacturing for microsensors
  • Additive manufacturing for microactuators
  • Additive manufacturing for microfluidics
  • Additive manufacturing for microsystems on biomedical and healthcare applications
  • Novel additive manufacturing processes for MEMS
  • Novel materials of additive manufacturing for MEMS
  • Design for AM for MEMS

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. Machines 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 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.
