Additive manufacturing (AM) with metals is currently one of the most promising techniques for 3D printed structures, as it has tremendous potential to produce complex, lightweight, and functionally optimized parts. The medical, aerospace, and automotive industries are some of the many expected to reap particular benefit from the ability to produce high quality models with reduced manufacturing costs and lead times. The main advantages of AM with metals are the flexibility of the process and the wide variety of metal materials that are available. Various materials, including steel, titanium, aluminum alloys, and nickel-based alloys, can be employed to produce end products.
This special issue focuses on additive manufacturing with metals, such as powder bed fusion (PBF), directed energy deposition (DED), and wire and arc-based AM. Authors are requested to display a deep understanding of the physical phenomena in order to improve the mechanical properties and the dimensional accuracies of the structures built. We are also interested in a successful industrial application or a development of materials related to each AM technique.

Surface finishing plays an important role in product quality due to its direct effects on product appearance. As a result, automated precision surface finishing processes are key technologies in the forming and shaping processes of industrial products and molds. The automated precision surface finishing processes can be divided into three main categories: the mechanical process, the electrochemical process, and the high energy beam process. The objective of this special issue for the International Journal of Automation Technology (IJAT) is to collect cutting-edge research works focused on automated precision surface finishing processes. The special issue of IJAT invites papers in the following areas:

  • – Ultraprecision surface machining and finishing
  • – Ultraprecision polishing
  • – Ball burnishing

Special Issue on Advanced Cutting Science and Technologies

Submission Deadline: May 31, 2018 (May 18, 2018 in Japanese)

Cutting technologies have been widely applied to the manufacturing of products for the aircraft, automobile, medical, energy, and information industries. Cutting operations are generally evaluated in terms of their material removal rates and surface qualities. Material properties have also been improved in material science and engineering. Because workpiece materials have become difficult to cut, scientific work should be done to achieve high performance in difficult-to-cut materials, such as nickel-based super alloy. The cutting technologies for brittle materials require high quality for medical or information devices. Products with complex shapes have recently been required for manufactured products with multi-axis machinings in several industries. Therefore, cutting operations should be well organized with controls, simulations, and monitoring. This special issue invites papers in the following areas:
•cutting mechanisms, including chip formation, temperature, and tool damage, including wear and failure control of machining qualities, such as accuracy, surface finish, residual stress, and affected layers
•model-based cutting simulations in turning, milling, drilling, etc.
•micro- and nano-scale cutting processes
•cutting processes for difficult-to-cut metals, such as titanium alloy, and brittle materials, such as glass
•cutting controls in multi-axis machining or multi-tasking machining
•control, simulation, and monitoring of cutting processes
•material-related research, such as studies on built-up edges and microstructures in materials
•characterization and analysis of surface finishes

The need for difficult-to-machine materials is increasing for opt-electric devices, semiconductors, automobiles, aircraft, and medical devices. Optical glass lenses have been molded with hard molds made of ceramics, such as tungsten carbide (WC) and silicon carbide (SiC), and it is most important to reduce form deviation and surface roughness in these molds. Single crystalline SiC is expected to be applied to semiconductors for the power module devices of automobiles, trains, and electrical devices. Nickel-based super alloys, Ti alloys, CFRP, hardened steels, and other materials are widely used in the aerospace, automobile, and chemical industries because of their superior properties, such as their high operating temperatures or superior specific strengths. Ti alloys are used in medical applications involving bones, dental implants, etc. In order to increase the performance and reduce the cost of these applications, the development of high-precision and high-performance abrasive technologies is very important. This special issue of the IJAT invites papers in the following areas:
• Grinding, finishing, deburring, lapping, polishing, honing, abrasive jet machining, etc.
• Grinding machines/systems and abrasive machines
