Special Issue "Advances in Additive Manufacturing and Their Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2023 | Viewed by 11361
Additive manufacturing (AM) is a new type of manufacturing engineering, with less than 35 years of history. The real value of additive manufacturing is in identifying those applications where reductions in lead time, manufacturing cost, weight, tooling, and so on can lead to huge benefits across a part’s lifecycle in many applications from industry to medicine.
Additive manufacturing has evolved rapidly in last few years. It has been embraced by major industrial companies looking for ways to improve their products. The ability to deliver near-instant part production and fully custom designs that cannot be replicated with other manufacturing techniques has accelerated investment and research in additive engineering.
A number of different metals are now available in powdered form to suit exact processes and requirements. Titanium, steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and copper-, cobalt chrome-, titanium- and nickel-based alloys are available in powdered form, as are precious metals such as gold, platinum, palladium and silver.
This Special Issue will cover fundamental studies of additive manufacturing process, optimizations, new additive processes, rapid tooling, and applications from industry to medicine using metal powders as raw materials.
I hope that the present Special Issue will be an opportunity for creating a strong network between authors and users, working in some different sectors, for smart applications from industry to medicine.

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. 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.
