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.
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.
