Pneumatic control of force and motion with high accuracy and low friction is enabled by Airpot’s Accurate Force Pneumatics packages. Literature from the company aids design engineers in selecting and specifying the components necessary to design accurate pneumatic force control systems using: clean, regulated air; proportional pressure control; and precise actuation at a lower cost than purchasing individual components. The self-aligning actuators, anti-stiction cylinders, and AB zero-friction air cylinder actuators are suited for applications with the need to move, hold, support, or press with repeatable and accurate low force over a wide temperature range without lubrication and with nearly unlimited life. Each of the four major product groups (damping, actuation, displacement, and optimized pneumatic systems) offers instrument-quality pneumatic devices designed for accurate and repeatable force control and smooth motion.

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.
