A November 2011 conference offered a forum for engineers and scientists to present research results and applications in the field of mechatronics and materials processing. All of the peer-reviewed papers presented in this three-volume set have been reviewed by two expert referees. Volume 1 presents the latest work on manufacturing technology and processing. Some specific topics reported include design of integral-shaped milling cutter profiles, a cooperative optimal method for two-level models of a micro device, design and numerical analysis of the internal suction flow heat sink, and a study on the rapid progressive die design of sheet metal with a free-form surface. Volume 2 collects papers on material science and technology, addressing areas such as tribological applications considering roughness effects on grain flow, design of forming dies for a manifold airbag inflator, the effects of microwave drying on dyeing rate of cotton yarn, and preparation of flexible graphite sheets with fine flake graphite. Volume 3 contains papers dealing with mechatronics and automation. Some subjects covered include a broaching-load testing system of a hydraulic broaching machine, adaptive impedance control for a robot based on estimation of environmental parameters, fault diagnosis of a hoist gearbox based on time-domain analysis of EMD and fuzzy clustering, and an open automatic laser engraving system. Zhang is affiliated with the University of New South Wales, Australia.
