Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The increasing market share of sintered materials that reduce the use of traditional manufacturing technologies is leading to the development of new materials and technologies. Innovations in powder metallurgy forming techniques, that include the control and characterization of the material across all processing steps and its final properties analysis, are the main scope of this Special Issue. Powder metallurgy methods have been used to manufacture materials that other property-shaping technologies cannot be applied to. Their advantages have quickly attracted new consumers, expanding their potential applications in metals and their alloy and composite structures. The high purity of powders, controlled at the production stage, together with the possibility to change their size and morphology to influence the end properties of products, has made powder metallurgy in new material markets highly attractive. Likewise, the process of sinter production is significant in the structure of final products. The realization of processes in stages or simultaneously, based on force value control, temperature field operation, and the influence of innovative current flow, microwave radiation, or lasers in incremental-technology-assisted processes, allow fully compacted materials to be obtained without the need for additional post-processing.

In this Special Issue, we welcome articles that focus on material preparation methods and their influence on the performance of final products, at both the powder and compaction stages. Topics of particular interest are fully controllable fast and low-cost processes with high implementation potential in advanced powder metallurgy for high-performance products.

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.
