In recent years, information technology equipment and devices such as laptop computers and cell phones have rapidly become popularised worldwide as a result of the advances in electronics and manufacturing technology. Abrasive machining, such as grinding and polishing, has played an essential role in the fabrication of the components used for such equipment and devices. As the demand for compact, miniaturised and multifunctional optoelectronic instruments increases, it is expected that the requirements for micro/nano precision abrasive machining of engineered components from both metallic and advanced materials will increase significantly.

The aim of this special issue of the IJAT is to compile the state-of-the-art in micro/nano-precision abrasive machining, consisting of high quality research articles in precision and ultra-precision grinding, polishing, slicing and other related processes, as well as new and advanced abrasive tools and equipment.
