Shanghai Aircraft has selected the MAG Charger low-rail gantry composite tape layer to produce main wings, stabilizers, and central wing boxes for COMAC C919 and C929 commercial passenger jets. The tape layer deposits composite tape at industry-leading speeds, while achieving aerospace grade-placement accuracies on complex contours. The machines lay 75-, 150-, or 300-mm carbon/epoxy tape with any orientation and number of plies, over tool surfaces with contours, flats, and changing geometries, producing consistent quality, part shape, thickness, and strength. MAG-designed controls and software make the multi-axis movements easy to program and control. ACES programming software translates CAD or CATIA tooling and laminate data into multi-axis machine commands. The platform is designed with high structural stiffness for good reliability and fast, accurate lay-up.

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.

NASA has selected proposals for the creation of two multi-disciplinary, university-led Space Technology Research Institutes (STRIs) that will focus on the development of technologies critical to extending human presence deeper into our solar system. The new STRIs will bring together researchers from various disciplines and organizations to collaborate on the advancement of cutting-edge technologies in bio-manufacturing and space infrastructure.
