International Journal of Automation Technology (IJAT) was initiated by Prof. Takeuchi to fill the gap between manufacturing and its application in the presently automated factories ten years ago. The journal has received strong record of submissions which have passed through rigorous review process by highly established academics in the field. As a result, IJAT has become one of the key journals to disseminate research results from traditional manufacturing processes to most advanced nano-micro manufacturing, smart actuators, robots, micro-manipulators, control methods, and a number of key automation applications.
The Editors-in-Chief Prof. Takeuchi, associate editors, and editorial officer Mr. Wakai for the outstanding efforts which brought the journal to a world class level in past ten years. We appreciate all authors who contributed to the journal with their articles which made the journal successful.
