Special Issue "Robotization of Machining Processes—Theory and Industrial Applications". (Machines, ISSN 2075-1702)
The robotization of mechanical machining processes is an area of robot application that has been developed for many years. The use of robots mainly concerns processes that require high maneuverability and the control of interaction forces during machining. Although there are robot control strategies and algorithms dedicated to mechanical processing, many processes require a non-standard approach, e.g., in the aerospace industry. At the same time, there are many theoretical solutions for the robotization of machining that unfortunately require very strict conditions.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to present the latest developments in robotic machining that have both theoretical background and utilitarian value confirmed by real applications or even preliminary laboratory tests. New ideas on all aspects of robotic machining, such as modeling, control, vibration reduction, soft computing, process monitoring, or economic aspects, are welcome.
