Dormer has expanded its solid carbide replaceable-head drilling program with its Hydra drills that provide high productivity across a range of materials and applications. The units are an alternative to solid carbide drills. Two head types are available. The R950—with diameters up to 42.0 mm—is offered for drilling operations in carbon and alloy steels. The R960 is ideal for stainless steel and cast iron but is also recommended for use in titanium and nickel. Both head types incorporate a self-centering, 140° four-facet split point. This feature ensures low thrust forces throughout the drilling cycle, promoting consistently high performance. The heads can be changed without removing the body from the spindle, thus reducing machine downtime.

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.
The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
France's Dassault Aviation and India's Reliance Group announced in late September 2016 the creation of a joint venture (JV) in India called Dassault Reliance Aerospace. With this announcement came news that the Dassault Reliance Aerospace JV will be a key player in the execution of offset obligations as a part of the 36 Rafale fighter jet purchase agreement that was signed between France and India on September 23, 2016 and is valued at around €7.87 billion, or about Rs. 59,000 crore.
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.
