The SB1028F variable-speed vertical milling machine from South Bend Lathe Co. is a 10 x 54-in machine with two power feeds and a three-axis digital readout for precise table positioning. The 5-hp, 220-V, 3-phase spindle motor operates on a single-phase power source. Electronic variable speed allows the operator to dial the perfect cutting speed. A conveniently positioned control panel features Allen-Bradley electrical components. Other features include high-precision Japanese P4 (ABEC-7) angular-contact spindle bearings, one-shot pump lubrication system for all dovetail ways, X and Y leadscrew nuts that are double-bronzed for ultra-smooth movement with minimal backlash, and recirculating coolant system with pump and reservoir in the base.

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.

One of the biggest issues in bringing forward new designs is the length of time that it takes to agree to a new specification, research and evaluate the alternative features and configurations, and then embark on a development program that will take the design to flight testing and ultimately operational service.
