Methods Machine Tools’ Nakamura-Tome NTJ-100 Multitasking Turn/Mill Center offers fast tool changes compared to a full-tool-spindle ATC machine. A large tool capacity—up to 54 tool stations for turning and 24 tool stations for milling tools—reduces setup time. For faster cycle times, the new center has two high-rigidity turrets, each with a Y-axis, 3.5 in (89 mm) on the upper and 2.6 in (66 mm) on the lower, aiding pinch turn and pinch mill operations. An upper turret swiveling B-axis with a range of 182° is good for easily producing angular features, eliminating the requirement for expensive angle milling heads. Two milling-tool motors, each at 9.5/3 hp, can double the performance compared to traditional multitasking centers. Designed with a minimum 7.9 in (201 mm) and maximum 35.8 in (909 mm) distance between spindles to eliminate any interference of tooling during multitasking, the center allows for multiple tools in the cut simultaneously.

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.
