    The text covers technological advancements in processing, post-processing, and surface engineering of bioimplant materials. It further explains important topics such as the additive manufacturing of bioimplants, the tribological performance of bioimplants, and the hybrid and non-traditional manufacturing of bioimplants materials. The text also presents metrology, and quality control of bioimplants in a detailed manner.

    This book:

    • Discusses hybrid and non-traditional manufacturing techniques such as electrical discharge machining, and electrochemical machining of bioimplants materials. 
    • Highlights the effect of processing on microstructure, biocompatibility, and mechanical behavior of bioimplants.                                                                                     
    • Investigates the tribological performance of bioimplants and sustainable manufacturing of bioimplants.                                                                                       
    • Covers smart technologies such as artificial intelligence, and machine learning-based intelligent implant manufacturing for industry 4.0.                                                   
    • Offers an in-depth understanding of the intrinsic relationship between the processing techniques, implant design, and functional performance.

    It is primarily written for senior undergraduate, graduate students, and academic researchers in the fields of mechanical engineering, production engineering, industrial engineering, aerospace engineering, and manufacturing engineering.
