The next-generation Horizontal Center Nexus (HCN) 4000-III horizontal machining center from Mazak Corp. includes performance enhancements that provide increased productivity and cost effectiveness, especially when it is used as a go-to workhorse machine for high-volume part-processing operations. The enhancements include those that shorten part cycle times and allow the center to handle a wider variety of part sizes and more parts per setup. Faster rapid-traverse speeds and acceleration rates, shorter chip-to-chip times, and increased tool-size capability allow reduced cycle times. Greater part-size versatility and parts-per-fixture result from the center’s expanded Y-axis travel/stroke, as well as a higher allowable thrust in its Z axis. Rapid traverse speed is now 2362 ipm (60 m/min), and machine acceleration rate went from 0.8 to 1 g.

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.

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.
