Third Dimension’s GapGun Edge Break Plus technology is used by several leading aerospace engine manufacturers on their assemblies. The handheld system uses a laser and camera to create a triangulated coordinate system. It saves manufacturers time by using optical sensor technology and custom-engineered software to inspect the edges of turbine components to high levels of precision, providing a fully auditable trail throughout the manufacturing process as proof of quality. The sensor technology incorporates an ultrahigh-precision head. By focusing on small areas in great detail, real-world shop floor measurements with a repeatability of less than 10 µm are achievable, a level previously unseen in handheld optical systems.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
