Publication Date: July 2020
Keywords: Advanced Processing, Modeling and Simulation, Shaping and Forming, Thin Films and Interfaces, Friction, Wear
Scope: In view of the 2 degree target for climate change, sustainable manufacturing processes are playing an increasingly important role. In order to save energy-intensive cleaning and drying processes in forming production, new approaches to carrying out forming processes are in the focus of research in which lubricants, their application and removal can be dispensed with. This is based on various tool and process modifications that have become possible using new technologies in forming tool manufacturing. This invited special topic will feature papers presented at the Recent Developments in Biological, Structural and Functional Thin Films and Coatings symposium at the TMS 2020 Annual Meeting & Exhibition.
