IJPTech promotes advances in precision technology accompanied by the underlying science and mathematics. It deals with normal, precision, high precision and ultra-precision machining processes and the machine tools, cutting tools and measurement systems involved in these processes. Precision is defined as something which is repetitive but not necessarily accurate. The ideal product, process or system is that which is precise and accurate as well. The journal welcomes papers of an engineering, scientific and mathematical nature.
Topics covered include
- Precision cutting tools, materials
- Mechanics of precision machining/polishing
- Precision, high precision, ultra-precision machine tools
- Hydrodynamic/hydrostatic/gas bearings
- Precision metrology
- Clean rooms
- Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)
- Energy particle beam machining
The objective of IJPTech is to provide a forum for state-of-the-art international research in all areas of precision technology as defined by the late Professor Taniguchi, a pioneer in this area and the inventor of the word nanotechnology. It embraces all activities ranging from the micrometre to the nanometer. Science and mathematics must form a part of papers submitted for publication in this journal.
IJPTech provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers, working in the field of precision technology management, precision science and engineering and business education, to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.
IJPTech publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies and book reviews pertaining to precision technology. Special issues devoted to important topics in precision technology are encouraged and will be published.
