Mechanical impact test methods for hard coatings of cutting tools: a review

Impact tests of different frequencies can be applied to simulate the cyclic fatigue load of the tool under different working conditions as well as different impact frequencies. The main objective of the present article is to review different …


A profile shaping and surface finishing process of micro electrochemical machining for microstructures on microfluidic chip molds

In the lithography-based fabrication process of microstructures on microfluidic chip molds, the shortcoming of limited substrate materials seriously shortens the service lifetime of the mold. This research focuses on a profile shaping and surface …


Prediction and analysis of rolling process temperature field for silicon steel in tandem cold rolling

In order to accurately predict the rolling process temperature field for the high-grade non-oriented silicon steel in five stands tandem cold rolling, a model with multi-layer grids in thickness direction is established with the control volume …


An image-based approach to predict instantaneous cutting forces using convolutional neural networks in end milling operation

Cutting force detection can contribute to predicting the productivity and quality of end milling operations. Instantaneous cutting force prediction of digital twins in end milling operations should be near real-time and accurate. This paper …


Research on machining error prediction and compensation technology for a stone-carving robotic manipulator

Stone-carving robotic manipulators (SCRMs) have a broad range of applications due to their high efficiency, diverse processing capabilities, and strong flexibility. However, due to its weak rigidity, the milling accuracy of an SCRM is lower than …

About this journal

The International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology bridges the gap between pure research journals and the more practical publications on factory automation systems. It therefore provides an outstanding forum for international papers covering applications-based research topics spanning the entire manufacturing spectrum.

Published papers will continue to be to a high standard of excellence. This is ensured by subjecting each paper to a strict assessment procedure by members of the international editorial advisory board. The objective is firmly to establish that papers submitted do meet the requirements, especially in the context of proven applications-based research work. It is not acceptable that papers have a theoretical content alone.

The journal covers the full range of advanced manufacturing technology. It therefore publishes papers on robotics; artificial intelligence, including speech technology, vision and tactile sensing; grippers; programmable controllers; lasers and other advanced processes; programmable assembly; flexible manufacturing systems; computer integrated manufacturing; inspection; automatic test equipment; simulation; motors, controls and drives; local area networking; production planning and control; logistics and supply chain management; human factors; and economics.
