The MLK 125 Linear Automatic Series of Swiss-type turning centers from Maier is suited for the accurate, high-volume production of electronic components and other small-part manufacturing. The centers feature 1600-in/min rapids in all axes and can accelerate up to 2 g. Spindles are driven by built-in 3-hp motors that can reach a speed of 15,000 rpm. The MLK Linear Series offers flexibility with a “two machines in one” option, allowing removal of the guide bushing, which enables the machine to operate as a standard lathe and eliminates the need to centerless grind stock. The units can machine up to 0.5-in bar stock and feature a 60 x 32-in footprint.

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.
