Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, with the popularity and application of additive manufacturing technology (commonly known as 3D printing technology), metal additive manufacturing technology has begun to gain traction in the manufacturing field and has rapidly developed into one of the most promising advanced manufacturing technologies in the 3D printing field. At present, metal parts formed by metal additive manufacturing technology are gradually being used in aerospace, medical equipment, automobile manufacturing, and other fields.

Metal additive manufacturing is a process that uses fine, metal powders to create strong, complex components that are designed either by using a computer-aided design (CAD) program or by taking a 3D scan of the object. It offers the possibility to produce complex parts without the design constraints of traditional manufacturing routes.

This Special Issue kindly invites researchers from the aforementioned fields to present new theoretical or experimental results and recent advancements in the form of research articles and reviews.

Dr. Jing Han
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Metals 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.
