The EC-630PP HMC from Haas Automation expands the production capability of the firm’s EC Series of horizontal machining centers. Designed for high-volume production and unattended operation, the device features a 40 x 33 x 35-in work envelope; 50-taper geared-head spindle; six-station pallet pool with 630-mm pallets; and a high-precision, 1º pallet indexer. The system is equipped with a 72-pocket side-mount tool changer, large-volume coolant tank, and high-capacity belt conveyor for efficient chip removal. Also standard are 710-in/min rapids, a 15-in color LCD monitor with USB port, 1 MB of program memory, a flood and wash-down coolant system, and a programmable coolant nozzle. Each pallet has a load capacity to 2640 lb.

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.
