Special Issue on Advanced Design and Performance Evaluation of Production Systems

Submission Deadline: May 31, 2024
Editors: Prof. Dr. Atsushi Matsubara, Kyoto University, Japan

The development of machining and measurement systems is strongly driven by the demands of digital transformation (DX) and green transformation (GX). Specifically, it is necessary to solve critical challenges in various fields, such as design, manufacturing, inspection, maintenance, and recycling, in response to the requirements of labor reduction, skill-free operation, and efficiency improvement throughout the entire production process. Furthermore, it is necessary to maintain social prosperity while controlling resource consumption by connecting these challenges. Therefore, tools that have supported production, such as machine tools, assembly machines, industrial robots, and measuring instruments, need to improve their conventional basic performance. It is also vital to circulate design, evaluation, and operational information in the value cycle.

The papers in this special issue discuss the concept of design, manufacturing, and evaluation technologies of production machines, methods of circulating information for individual tools, and evaluation methods from the perspective of GX.

•Optimal design of production machines and measurement systems
•Digital twin of production machines and machine elements
•New evaluation methods for production machine and machine elements
•On-machine process evaluation
•Design and evaluation of sensor fused intelligent systems

IJAT Vol.18 No.5, September 5, 2024

Special Issue on Advanced Three-Dimensional Digital Geometry Processing

Submission Deadline: January 31, 2024
Editors: Prof. Dr. Satoshi Kanai, Hokkaido University, Japan
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Yukie Nagai, Tokyo Metropolitan University, Japan

In the fields of design, manufacturing, social infrastructure, and medicine, it has become possible in recent years to create large-scale 3D digital data that represent the geometry of various types of objects. These data are obtained from high-performance 3D measurement systems, such as laser measurement and CT. However, to effectively deploy such digital data for design, manufacturing, maintenance, simulation, diagnosis, inspection, or other applications, it is essential to have geometric processing technologies that appropriately and efficiently convert and process, according to the application, the volume, resolution, representation format, semantic attributes, etc. of the 3D digital data. This special issue solicits papers on the fundamentals and applied research of such advanced digital geometric processing techniques. Papers are welcome on the following or other related topics:

3D measurement (CT, laser scanning, photogrammetry, etc.), point cloud processing, volume data processing, meshes, finite element analysis and discretization issues, virtual and augmented reality, reverse engineering, digital/virtual prototyping, digital style/industrial design, advanced algorithms for CAD/CAM, digital geometry processing for additive manufacturing and 3D printing, solid and heterogeneous modeling, hardware acceleration, 3D object recognition/archival/retrieval, CAD in the arts and creative media, Internet-based/Web-enabled design and engineering, machine/deep learning techniques related to these topics, other traditional and emerging topics of three-dimensional digital geometry processing, standardization, and educational applications.
