Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recent developments in advanced ultra-precision machine tools and abrasive systems have seen phenomenal advances in new machine tool structures and abrasive cutting systems.  This Special Issue is dedicated to understanding the design, application and use of ultra-precision machines and abrasive systems to grind materials at mixed-length scales (nano, micro, meso and macro) and focuses on the successes and the challenges of processing in a sustainable manner that preserves the Earth’s natural resources and functional systems.  Original research articles and reviews are requested for this Special Issue of Machines that provides a view of the current state-of-the-art, or a roadmap, of the future for ultra-precision machine tools and abrasive systems. Case studies of industrial practice are also solicited so that the readers of this Special Issue can understand the applied nature of specific industrial applications.
