Special Issue on: "Advanced Manufacturing of Engine Components for the Aeronautical Sector"

Guest Editors:
Francisco J. Campa and Naiara Ortega, University of the Basque Country, Spain

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.

Subject Coverage
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
