IJMMS covers the broad field of mechatronics (computers, sensors, machines, controls) related to manufacturing processes and systems, highlighting R&D in the modern engineering of advanced mechatronics and manufacturing technology. It addresses all manufacturing equipment, processes and systems, including machining systems, metal forming, joining, lasers and electrically enhanced processes, additive manufacturing processes, hybrid and microfabrication processes. IJMMS also reports work on broad industrial applications, e.g. discrete product manufacturing systems with applications in automotive, aerospace, machine tool, computer, biomedical and other industries.


 Topics covered include

  • Additive manufacturing equipment and control
  • Advanced/intelligent/smart machining systems
  • Autonomous/adaptive control systems, sensors, actuators
  • Biomanufacturing systems
  • Computer-aided/integrated manufacturing methods
  • Computer-aided inspection/quality control systems
  • Computational methods and optimisation in manufacturing
  • Expert manufacturing systems based on artificial intelligence methods
  • Hybrid manufacturing processes/systems
  • Metal forming manufacturing equipment and control
  • Machine tool design and control
  • Mechatronics systems in manufacturing
  • Miniaturised manufacturing devices, equipment, systems
  • Non-traditional machining systems
  • Laser-based manufacturing systems
  • Sensor fusion, network technologies for manufacturing
