  • Call for Papers: JMSE Special Issue on Enhanced process-machine interaction through design, tooling, automation, and modeling

    Dear Colleagues,

    We are pleased to announce a special issue of the ASME Journal of Manufacturing Science and Engineering (JMSE) on Enhanced process-machine interaction through design, tooling, automation, and modeling. 

    Computer numerically-controlled (CNC) manufacturing equipment and tooling has led to automation of processes and significant productivity advances. Demand for high quality products and cost-effective processes continues to grow and has driven the design of new machinery, intelligent tooling, and sophisticated control and automation techniques. However, the efficiency and throughput of modern manufacturing processes still depends on the interaction of the machine with the process. This motivates research in the area of process-machine interaction focusing on design, tooling, automation, and modeling. With this call for papers, manufacturing engineers are invited to showcase their research to a large audience in a special issue of the ASME Journal of Manufacturing Science and Engineering. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    • Computer-assisted cutting tool and die-mold design and analysis: Prediction of force, torque, power, vibrations, and structural deformations during machining and metal forming operations, and optimal die-mold design considering material flow, stress, temperature, wrinkles, and rupture during metal forming operations
    • Machine tools and metal forming presses: Structural and kinematic configurations, new machine tool elements and materials, and digital models of production equipment
    • High speed spindles: Design characteristics of high speed spindles, dynamics, and thermal issues
    • High performance feed drive and CNC systems: Design, control, and optimization of feed drives
    • CNC tool-path generation: Multi-axis milling of sculptured surfaces, feature based process planning, vibration avoidance and energy minimization, interpolation, and trajectory generation
    • Virtual manufacturing: Simulation/optimization of machine tool motions for collision avoidance and energy consumption, material removal/addition considering process physics, machine tool dynamics, and kinematics
    • Active control of machine tool vibrations
    • Machine tool metrology, surface metrology, and tolerancing principles
    • Diamond turning, fast tool servos, ultra-precision machining, and machine tools
    • In-situ measurement of force, temperature, residual stress, vibration, part dimensions, and tool wear.

    Manuscripts are due 4/1/17. Publication of the Special Issue is scheduled for February 2018.

    2. Special Issue on Grinding Technology – Commemorating the Scientific
    Contributions by Professor Stephen Malkin

    This special issue is being dedicated to the memory of Professor Stephen Malkin. To honor his significant
    contributions to the field of grinding technology we are seeking papers that review his work, are inspired by, or are based on his findings and application of his theories. Grinding technology has a high relevance in the industry as it produces high-quality and high-value products. This special issue will focus on how abrasive processes (loose or fixed) add value through enhanced product functionality, integrity, and sustainability. In addition, new process design, simulation of physical mechanisms, and new applications possible through enhanced abrasive machining are of interest. Researchers in this field are invited to share their research with a large audience in this special issue of the ASME Journal of Manufacturing Science and Engineering. Topics of interests include but are not limited to:
    · Enhancement of product life or performance through grinding
    · Grinding of ductile and brittle materials

  • Call For Papers: IJCIM Special Issue: Cyber-Physical Creation for Industry 4.0

    Dear Colleague:

     We are writing to invite contributions to a Special Issue of the International Journal of Computer Integrated Manufacturing (IJCIM) on "Cyber-Physical Product Creation for Industry 4.0".

     

    Industry 4.0 has become a synonym for a vision of future product creation and production engineering environments in which networks of horizontally and vertically integrated smart design and manufacture systems will be the norm. With the Industrial Internet of Things and its Cyber-physical Systems as a backbone, game-changing new ways of product design and manufacture in a hyper-connected globalized world are emerging. In addition, a new and rapidly growing industrial service-sector focusing on Product-Service-Systems has begun to form. Some of the challenges in realizing the overall vison of Industry 4.0 concern the integration, management, control and communication of cyber-physical production engineering systems, the integration of state-of-the-art technology with legacy systems, data security and broader cyber-security aspects, as well as national and international public policy issues. Lastly, given the profound impact of this so-called 4th Industrial Revolution on society as a whole, the changing landscape of tomorrow’s job market and hence the training and education of the next generation workforce need to be addressed as well.

     

    The objective of this special issue is to seek high quality and unpublished papers that advance research and thus the state-of-the-art in all facets of Cyber-physical Product Creation in the broader context of Industry 4.0. Contributions may include theoretical foundations, open technical challenges, innovative applications and implementations in industry, business case studies, experimental studies, associated design-and manufacture education initiatives, as well as outstanding review papers.  For a list of suggested topics and further details please refer to the attached call for papers document.

     

    Important Dates:

    October 1, 2016                 Title and abstract due by email to d.schaefer@bath.ac.uk 

    November 1, 2016             Full paper submission deadline
