Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Difficult-to-machine materials such as high-temperature alloys and other high-strength and ductile materials, ceramics, hard and brittle glass materials, and composite materials with both high hardness and high toughness are widely used in aerospace, marine equipment, intelligent terminals, biomedical and other fields. However, their low damage and efficient processing have always been common challenges. Hybrid-energy-field machining technology provides new ideas for solving the above problems. In recent years, scholars have attempted various emerging technologies around hybrid-energy-field composite machining, including laser-induced plasma machining, magnetic field assisted electrical machining, laser-assisted cutting machining, ultrasound-assisted hot-pressing forming, and other composite special energy field manufacturing technologies. The purpose of this Special Issue is to showcase the new technological achievements and research progress in the field of hybrid-energy-field composite manufacturing, promote the coordinated development of relevant disciplines, and summarize and promote the processing science problems, physical and chemical mechanisms, key technologies, and promotion applications in the process of hybrid-energy-field composite manufacturing, which has significant theoretical and practical significance.

We look forward to receiving your submissions!

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. Micromachines 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.
