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.
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.
