In this paper, the recent achievements in the advanced manufacturing technology are presented. The laser forming of sheet metals, rapid forming, precision casting, precision forging, inertia friction welding are developed for aviation and aerospace industries. The main topics including the advantages, principle of manufacturing, processing parameters and control, typical processing applied in practice and typical work-pieces for those advanced manufacturing technologies are summarized.
Key words:    advanced manufacturing    hot forming    achievement    typical processing
