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 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
• Abrasives and tools, tribology between tool and workpiece
• Truing, dressing, ELID (Electrolytic In-Process Dressing) for grinding
• Silicon wafers and hard/brittle materials processing
• Loose/suspended abrasive particle machining/polishing
• Hybrid super-finishing processes
• Precision/ultra-precision, micro-machining, nano-machining, super finishing/nano-surfacing
• Surface characterization/evaluation of surfaces processed with abrasives
• Metrology for precision/ultra-precision machining and in-process measurement/monitoring
• Environmentally friendly coolants/cooling
• Teaching and learning innovations

Special Issue on Active and Passive Vibration Damping in Machine Tools

Submission Deadline: December 1, 2017
Editors: Prof. Dr. Michael F. Zaeh, Institute for Machine Tools and Industrial Management (iwb), the Technical University of Munich, Germany

The successful automation of machine tools requires the avoidance of self-excited chatter vibrations, resulting in a reliable stable state of cutting. Machine tool operators tend to use their machines close to their power thresholds, thus unknowingly driving them toward the limits of their stability. Much progress has been made in the last decades concerning the understanding and prediction of such vibrations, and this has led to higher cutting rates, chip thicknesses, etc.
Several countermeasures, known as active and passive damping, are available to avoid chatter vibrations. However, their industrial use is not common. In fact, industry is somewhat unfamiliar with many of these measures.

This special issue is focused on active and passive damping measures, measures systematically designed and deliberately taken in order to increase the chatter-free depth of cut in machine tools. Authors are requested to point out a successful industrial application or at least a vision for one in their papers. Models demonstrating the effects of the chosen active or passive damping system are desirable. These models can also be used to systematically select the parameters of the system. We are also interested in systems that can be easily applied as low-cost patch-up solutions to improve the behavior of machines already in use.

This special issue is intended to deliver an overview of existing approaches and to introduce additional damping in machine tools.

We are no longer in an age when a product will sell just because it has advanced functions. To meet the diverse needs of users, production systems have responded by introducing mass-customization and mass-personalization schemes. The importance of interactive support as the user uses the product has become widely recognized today. Thus, the product and its associated services have become intertwined, and production systems are shifting from the production of artifacts as products to dealing with “servitized products”, for which systematic use is made of hardware, software, and human ware to carry out functional maintenance, usage process monitoring, and user assistance.

The goal of this special issue is to introduce good examples of design of product, production systems, and interaction of producers with customers with viewpoints of Service Engineering. We examine the relevant concepts and approaches of Service Engineering to improve competitiveness of goods and services. We invite our readers to submit papers on a wide range of topics, such as case studies of product service systems, studies on servitized products, survey of usage processes, or studies on the use of models generated from large data sets on customer behavior to construct systems to identify potential customer needs and seek methods to meet those needs, among others.
