Call for papers: "Advanced Manufacturing of Engine Components for the Aeronautical Sector"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Mechatronics and Manufacturing Systems.

The current trend in the aeronautical sector demands more efficient aero-engines, which means more advanced manufacturing processes for new components and materials. This special issue will cover the state-of-the-art in manufacturing processes, machines, tools, metrology and inspection for the manufacturing of components for the aero-engine of the future.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Advanced processes for aero-engine components manufacturing
  • Machining of superalloys and other advanced materials
  • New advances in machining processes (turning, milling, drilling, grinding, turn-milling, multitasking)
  • Non-conventional machining processes (EDM, chemical machining, ultrasonic machining and other processes)
  • Advanced welding processes
  • Advanced forming processes
  • Advanced casting processes
  • Lasers and laser processing
  • Additive manufacturing
  • Modelling of manufacturing processes for aero-engine manufacturing
  • Process dynamics modelling
  • Chip formation modelling
  • Modelling of temperatures
  • Modelling of surface integrity
  • Advanced machine tools and mechatronic systems for aero-engine components manufacturing
  • Innovative fixtures
  • New tools for aero-engine components manufacturing
  • New metrology and surface integrity control systems

Important Dates
Submission of manuscripts: 30 September, 2015
