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.
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.
Improvements to Airbus A320 passenger air nozzles could potentially contribute to program-wide benefits.
NASA has selected proposals for the creation of two multi-disciplinary, university-led Space Technology Research Institutes (STRIs) that will focus on the development of technologies critical to extending human presence deeper into our solar system. The new STRIs will bring together researchers from various disciplines and organizations to collaborate on the advancement of cutting-edge technologies in bio-manufacturing and space infrastructure.
