about this item
Materials Forming and Machining: Research and Development publishes refereed, high quality articles with a special emphasis on research and development in forming materials and machining and its applications.
A large family of manufacturing processes are now involved in material formation. Plastic deformation and other techniques are used to change the shape of a workpiece. Materials forming techniques include: extrusion, forging, rolling, drawing, sheet metal forming, microforming, hydroforming, thermoforming, and incremental forming, among others.
Machining is a manufacturing process in which a cutting tool or other technique is used to remove excess material from a workpiece so that the remaining material is the desired shape. Machining includes traditional machining, non-traditional machining, abrasive machining, hard part machining, high speed machining, high efficiency machining, and micromachining.
Forming technologies and machining can be applied to a wide variety of materials.
