  • 06-Jan-2012 04:32 EST

Magellan Aerospace (U.K.) Ltd. and GKN Aerospace signed a contract extension to deliver aluminum and titanium components from Magellan's Bournemouth and Chalfont St Peter divisions. This contract is projected to generate revenues in excess of £200 million through December 2017. The components are destined for GKN's Filton facility, which manufactures and assembles wing structures. To support this program, Magellan will make further investments in high-speed five-axis machining technology.

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.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
